It certainly can...

"ARccOS intentionally introduces errors to certain sectors of the DVD so
that ripping software that reads the disc sequentially will generate errors
in the ripped product.  Most set-top DVD players can read instructions on
the disc to skip over these intentional errors, though, which then produces
the expected video output for most users. Others cannot."
