MD5 failing on optical media

I've been encountering odd errors whenever I attempt to verify
files on optical discs.  Right now this is on a couple of DVD-RAM
discs but I've encoutered similar issues on +R and +RW discs in
the past.  Before now I've put it down to real errors and defective
media but I've caught it in the act now.  

If I have data and an MD5 checksum file on an optical disc and
attempt to verify it in place I get errors even immediately after
making the checksums.  However, if I copy the files onto my hard
drive first and check those copies against the copied checksum file
everything is successful:

n1c$ md5 * >/tmp/MD5; mv /tmp/MD5 .
n1c$ cd .. ; umount udf ; mount udf ; cd udf
n1c$ md5 -c MD5                                                                 
(MD5) Open-License-Software-Supplement.iso: FAILED
(MD5) Vision-2000.iso: FAILED
n1c$ cd /tmp
n1c$ mkdir UW7
n1c$ cd UW7/                                                                   
n1c$ cp /mnt/udf/* .
n1c$ md5 -c MD5                                                                

Does anyone have any ideas what may be going on here?  FWIW cmp
doesnt seem to have any issues comparing the disc files against
either the originals or the copies.  System is running 6.0/amd64
RELEASE.  dmesg|grep cd0 reports:
