Finder does not read DVD while Terminal does

I have recently encountered a weird problem. I have received DVD+R discs that I can't read in Finder. They show up in Devices list, appear on desktop (albeit with folder icon, not DVD one). When I click on it, I can see folders on DVD (but not files), but every one is empty (statusbar tells "0 items"). I cannot copy those folders anywhere (I got error -8060).

Now the funny part.

Disc is mounted correctly:
$ mount
/dev/disk2 on /Volumes/ŚLUB DVD1 (udf, local, nodev, nosuid, read-only, noowners)
I can browse contents in Terminal using shell utilities (ls, cp) without any problems. I can copy files without any errors.

I am only confused by high used inode count:
$ df .
Filesystem 512-blocks    Used Available Capacity    iused   ifree %iused  Mounted on
/dev/disk2    6710496 6710496         0   100% 18446744073707874556 1677624 3270699303848913920%   /Volumes/ŚLUB DVD1
Is this disc broken?

Just guessing, but it looks like it was written to, but the session wasn't closed.

Can this be verified?

And why DVD is readable by shell utils?
