I know it's an old 'dead' format, but i have a collection of over 400 HD-DVD discs.
I started watching the Harry Potter discs a couple of weeks ago and found that 3 of the 5 discs would no longer play all the way through.
So i decided to check all my other Warner HD-DVD discs. Of the 133 warner HD-DVD discs i have, 44 would not play. The majority of these discs were unplayed , many were still in the cellophane wrappers and were only opened to test the discs.
All the discs have been kept in the same dry, heated room, away from direct heat / sunlight.
It's quite worrying that about 1/3 of the discs have problems after few years. In comparison I also have a large collection of CD’s, DVD’ and Blu-Ray discs, none of which have ever had problems.
I contacted Warner about the issue, but they would only offer to replace 1 of the faulty discs. Saying that was there policy.
I just wondered if anyone else is having similar issues, and if there is anything we can do about the issue?
