The only time I saw this type of 'rot' was after I had a house fire and water and moisture from the water caused this in some of my DVD's. Maybe you guys have a lot of moisture around?

Guess mine is the same.

Just checked ~ 20 BR movies, 4 ps3 games. None show the rot.

Im a little uninformed on disk rot. When some of you posters talk about DVD disk rot, did it happen right away? Will all DVDs eventually rot; by that i mean, is this a problem with disk it self, or how they were stored, treated etc? I was under the assumption that DVDs that are pressed will last a lifetime, vs burned DVDs. I hope none of my old collection has rotted, id idnt even know it was possible.

I hope all your guys BD get replaced promptly.

Me either. Hopefully i don't get any of those in the future.

I posted mine for Stranger Than Fiction a few posts above. My Departed is fine.
Here is STF:

Inner rim:

BVDL-006180A1 4
BVDL-006180B1 1

PS: DVDPacific won't replace mine Unsure if I'll buy another.

Also I think I'll go for HD-DVD in the future of the same title.

^^

Seems like it's a bad production run of 50gb disks. Only the "BVDL" has been affected. The single layer disks are coded BVSL or something similar.

.

I'm pretty sure that's the catalog number of the release, not specific pressing info.

I just bought a brand-new STF from Amazon, and it had those same BVDL numbers (and no rot).

I live in Sunnyvale, CA and own all three - Stranger than Fiction, The Departed, and the Prestige. All three purchased on day of release. Discs still look perfect.

go to sony (or whomever published that title) and tell them about this, i think they will get you new one so they can get the one you have to take a look at it and figure out why there are issues.

Uh-oh. Sony laserdiscs were notorious for being susceptible to the dreaded rot. Gonna have to check my Blu-rays tomorrow......

Sony is keeping ya coming back for more.
post #162 of 397
Checked over my 30 or so BDs and no rot.
post #163 of 397
My Prestige has very minor rot. I had to look really hard for it in really bright light.

My Departed looked fine, as did The Descent. I didn't bother to check any others.
post #164 of 397
I checked my Prestige and saw no signs of rot.

This is my thought too.

Does anyone with the rot problem have a home without an air conditioner or store their movies in a home theater that's in the basement (perhaps without a dehumidifier or needs to add another)?

If you have the rot, then post something quick about how and where your discs are stored.

It'd be nice to center on why this rot is occurring. If it's only happening to some, then hopefully the problem isn't a factory defect which could eventually effect everyone and all BD discs.

This is an isolated phenomenon that inevitably happens when a new technology is introduced. It has happened on a limited basis with some CDs, LDs and DVDs. There is no reason to believe or suggest this is a widespread problem. I believe two or maybe three titles including "The Prestige" and "Stranger Than Fiction" have been affected with the majority of AVS members reporting no problem whatsoever with those or any other titles for that matter.

I've heard of disc rot before, but I just don't get what people do to their discs to make it happen. Even my brother is not that careless with discs.

?

CD/DVD rot can happen if left in extremely humid and salty environments, DVD delamination occurs simply because of manufacturing problems with the way the two layers are joined together.

This Blu-ray rot is something similar to the latter, some manufacturing problem which destabilizes over time.

I have been afflicted by it and I am extremely careful with all my discs, which dont even have a finger print on any of them and are stored in a low-humidity controlled room. Repeat: Its not mistreatment, its a manufacturing fault.

I am really concerned about long term stability of Blu-ray discs if we are seeing this kind of defect after only a few months.
post #171 of 397
In the dozens of media forums I visit daily, I can count on just one hand the number of people that have reported a problem with their Blu-ray discs. I have a minimal amount of concern at this point. My real concern is that this subject is monitored closely to avoid the sickness of fanboyism from infecting this thread in order to exploit a rather isolated occurance into an indictment of an entire format. AVS Forum already has a somewhat negative reputation in some quarters because of this type of juvenile behavior.

same for me

Have you guys run into this?

BD10 FW 1.1, My Departed BD played fine.

After FW 2 and 2.1 it does not READ anymore, BD10 just goes to STOP after 30 seconds or so of trying to read. Checked the disc for Rot and looks clean/clear.

Has anyone run into this?

I'm using a HDMI (video only) and Optical digital (audio) out.

DEPARTED: BVDL-007000B1 10

Thanks much for any ideas!

Cheers m8s!

Here is the pic of my Prestige BD:


Wow. I checked all my Blu-ray discs (have over 60) and none of them have this problem. They are all pristine. Several years ago I accidentally left some DVDs out very near to where I was painting a wall with a roller brush. And guess what? They ended up looking exactly like this picture. I was always more careful with my DVDs after that.

If you sprinkled cinnamon on a disc it would probably look like that also. Of course, if you accidentally sprinkle cinnamon on one of your discs, just blow it off & it will be fine.

And if you "accidentally" spatter paint or sprinkle cinnamon on an HD-DVD disc, take a picture of it, post a picture of the disc on the HD-DVD forums and tell the world you've discovered HD-DVD Disc Rot.

I just checked all of my BD50s (including Prestige and Departed) and none of them had a speck on them. I really hope this is limited in scope..

Sony DADC strikes again! It looks like they have not learned from their past mistakes in LaserDisc manufacturing.
