I get this error. All. The. Time.

Watching DVDs stinks on my MacBook since upgrading to Leopard. I had absolutely no problems before. I don't think I ever saw that message on Tiger, etc. VLC can still play the supposedly "damaged" DVDs. But DVD Player will skip over multiple parts for almost anything I throw at it.

Anyone else experience this?

Leopard's DVD player is truly awful.

I have had this on some of my DVDs and when I played them in the 10.4 DVD player there were no problems.
I could take Sean Connery in a fight... I could definitely take him.
