You can try to use the 32 bit compatibility (COMPAT32)
and then run the 32 bit version of mplayer. As I do not
own a 64 bit system, I can't be more specific.

This MAY be a codec problem. You can try the following:
First mount the DVD (cd_9660), then use mplayer on one
of the VOB files directly. Choose one of the bigger
files for this test, and maybe use mplayer's -v option
to get an idea what may be wrong - the program should
tell you about this.
