It's just like the hard disk on your computer. You may have a large file spread all over your hard disk in little chunks here and there. If you try to read the disk linearly, you're going to find all those chunks in random order. But if you read the disk using the correct structure and indexing and pointers, wahoo!, all your random chunks are magically put back together in the correct order. DVD's used to have their titles laid out in linear order, and they didn't have such sophisticated menu structures. But they haven't routinely had that for a long time, and they are much more complex these days. Hence, "dvdnav" over "dvd". The problem here, is that tutorials and advice live on forever on the internet. So when you find a Google hit on a situation similar to yours, you say, "Great! Here's the solution." Except you're possibly looking at a solution from ten years ago, that doesn't work any longer today.
