Ahh, sr* naming is using pata library, which deprecated the ide library
somewhere around 2.6.18.

Could you do something? Try to rip the error-inducing DVD, using something
like k9copy or acetoneiso2. Don't need to encode it to AVI, if the app gives
you an option, just rip it to normal mpeg.

Personally this happens with a lot of home-made and in-house (ie. not
commercial) DVDs, where I see that error, and the ripping stops abruptly.
They can be ripped fine in other operating systems.
