You could try using mplayer to dump the DVD to verify whether it is a drive problem, disc problem, or transcode problem (which is what mythdvd uses I think).
$ mplayer dvd://n -dumpstream -dumpfile test.vob
If that works, then likely it is a problem with transcode/mythdvd. Note that the dvd://n - n needs to be replaced with the title number of the main movie - usually it is 1.
