Default dvd drive or driver?

I'm been noticing a weird thing lately:

When I first put in a DVD that has a lot of files (backup
stuff I'm sorting through), everything seems readable.

If I let the DVD spin down, take a while looking at some
of the stuff I got off it, then come back to look at
additional files, sometimes the files near "the end" of
the dvd start appearing truncated.

This seems to creep up the disk, with more and more files
becoming apparently corrupted the more cycles I go through
of leaving the disk alone for a while.

If I then eject the disk and remount it, everything comes
back :-).

Does this sound familiar to anyone? (I'm on x86_64 fedora 8).

I am on F8 i386 and do not see that problem looking at the f8 dvd in
the directory with all the rpm files. I would think that the DVD
hardware needs to run when you try to look further down in the
directory. At least mine does. I see partial file names but then the DVD
light comes on and it fixes the file names.
