Check if the DVD is a double layer type. For example it would say something 
like DVD+R DL on the disk. If it is, then check your DVD drive has support for 
reading double layer discs. You can use sysutils/cdrtools package to find out 
capabilities of your drive:

 cdrecord -v dev=/dev/rcd0d -checkdrive
Profile: DVD+R/DL 
Profile: DVD+R 
Profile: DVD+RW 
Profile: DVD-R/DL layer jump recording 
Profile: DVD-R/DL sequential recording 
Profile: DVD-RW sequential recording 
Profile: DVD-RW restricted overwrite 
Profile: DVD-RAM 
Profile: DVD-R sequential recording 
Profile: DVD-ROM 
Profile: CD-RW 
Profile: CD-R 
Profile: CD-ROM 
Profile: Removable Disk

Also check what filesystem your DVD contains. I've had issues reading UDF DVDs 
on NetBSD.
