I did replace the cable now, but that did not fix the problem. I guess
it has to do with libdvdread4 or libdvdcss2, I can burn DVD+RW and

Well if that is your guess, then you can just copy the DVD
with /usr/bin/readcd or /usr/bin/ddrescue to a file,
and then the same problem should occur with said file.

Good point. So it is not the libraries, I can open images of DVD Video
disks and view the content using vlc and mplayer.

Trying to generate the images on this machine aborts dd_rescue finds
only 1073 MBytes, but I can read 4.3GB from DVD+RW disks. What else
could be wrong here?

I'm not sure you can use ddrescue to copy a "purchased" video dvd. :-?
