brand-new DVD drives less reliable than crappy old player - fix?

I have a bunch of disks that will play fine in my laptop and TV, but
not in my freebsd system with a new-ish NEC drive. Figured it was the
drive, so I got a new pioneer, same issue - scratch somewhere that
causes no hiccup on other players makes it tank. I can't even cp or
rsync data off them, and these are only minor scratches. Is there
anything tunable, or ways to keep rsync or cp going after an error?
I get 100MB of the last GB file. Most annoying. I know you usually
want cp to fail if there's read errors, but this is one instance where
you'd like it to skip and keep going - I assume that's what my dvd
player does. These are not commercial disks, so I can't just go out
and buy a new one, and I was too stupid to make backups, so I have a
vested interest in a workaround.
