The issue is that I'm trying to read some 2-3 year old "movie"

Try another drive (best would be a dvd burner).

Apart from that, you could try ddrescue and just plain copy the whole
disc to an iso imagefile.

ddrescue or gddrescue?

Also, check out vobcopy, it's my fav
application to backup dvds.

I'll try that.

If you are interested in DVDs under Debian, note that a useful thing to
know about is the videolan project


They provide libdvdcss and libdvdplay, useful libraries to install,
which are not included in Debian. (non-DFSG)

I've already installed packages vlc (it's my player of choice) and libdvdcss2.

Are you saying that I should install upstream instead?

Dissent is patriotic, remember?
