Potential Cloverfield disc rot?
Just sat down to watch my Blu-ray of Cloverfield tonight (the original, not 10 Cloverfield Lane). When I first popped it into the PS3 it returned to the menu with a video error message. Tried again, it started up this time. However in the second to last chapter (around 1:07-1:10) it froze and did not continue. Tried in another Blu-ray player, froze in the same place. Tried to copy the disc in my PC Blu-ray drive via AnyDVD, got "Error reading from ... sectors: 11941984-11942015"
A couple interesting things to note here:
1) I watched this exact disc in this exact PS3 with no issues on 9/18/2008 (yeah, I document everything!)
2) The disc has, since its initial viewing, been safely in storage for the last 8 years. Physical examination reveals no cracks, scratches, or fingerprints. The disc looks new as if it was just opened.
I found a couple random forums with similar issues for this specific Blu-ray via googling. Does this sound like a failure due to age? If so it is mildly concerning, to say the least, given my VERY large Blu-ray collection. If this is a possibility to happen within a decade then what's the point of collecting movies?
Is there a way to contact the manufacturer to try to at least get a replacement disc? I'm not loving those odds.
