I just wanted to put this out there re: flood/water damage and Blu-ray discs. After a friend's apartment got flooded due to the recent superstorm, we've been picking through the damage and salvaging what we can. This includes going through hundreds of DVDs, HD-DVDs, and Blu-rays that were submerged in the flood. While I knew the cover art was gone, I figured I'd be able to salvage all of the discs themselves. In the cases of the DVDs and HD-DVDs, no problem- they all cleaned off fine. In the case of the Blu-rays, not so lucky. So far, I have five Blu-rays that have been destroyed due to the water damage (including two Criterion titles). It seems the water got under the anti-scratch protection layer, fogging the discs and rendering them unplayable. Just a word of warning- water and Blu-rays don't mix!
