mounted data dvds not read correctly

I recently became aware that there is something going wrong when I mount data dvds on my fedora core 4 system. I became aware of this using a data dvd rom that contains some software from Sun. I have tested that the dvd is ok by using another system. The symptom is that when I mount this dvd and try to compute checksums of files on it I get a different random answer on each mount. There are no signs of trouble as the system boots -- here is the relevant section of /var/log/dmesg:

ide: Assuming 33MHz system bus speed for PIO modes; override with idebus=xx

If it matters, the system is an hp pavilions desktop model a820n.

As far as I can see, video dvds play fine on the same dvd drive.

There are no messages produced to either dmesg or to /var/log/messages when mounting or reading files from the dvd.

I am running the latest fedora 4 kernel: kernel-smp-2.6.16-1.2108_FC4. The problem also occurs with an older fedora 4 kernel: kernel-smp-2.6.15-1.1833_FC4.

Can anyone suggest anything I can do to work around this problem, or to track down where it occurs?
