[ILUG-BOM] can't read vcd

Just installed red hat 7.2.  Things are ok, except for this.
It's not able to read any of my video CDs.  I'm able to mount
the vcd, but I can't read a file (I can read directories).

Here's the cdrom portion of my fstab:
/dev/cdrom    /mnt/cdrom    iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0

Here's what I'm doing.

# eject -t
# mount /mnt/cdrom
# ls /mnt/cdrom/mpegav
# cp /mnt/cdrom/mpegav/avseq01.dat .
cp: reading `/mnt/cdrom/mpegav/avseq01.dat': Input/output error
# echo $?
# umount /mnt/cdrom
# eject
# rm -rf /

I tried with different video CDs (I have many =) but none of
them seem to work.  And the behaviour is the same - can read
directories but can't read files.  Also, other CDs (like the
rh7.2 cd itself) work just fine.  It's just with video CDs this
problem.  And the same video CDs were working ok with windows
until last week when I removed windows.

I have *enough* space on my disk.  I can't even do something
like this:
# cat /mnt/cdrom/mpegav/avseq01.dat > /dev/null
cat: /mnt/cdrom/mpegav/avseq01.dat: Input/output error

Anyone faced this problemo?  What do you do?
