    Warner DVD's not working thread - watch to make sure they still play

    I attempted to watch Vincente Minnelli's 1949 film of Madame Bovary tonight. Alas, it froze at chapter 19 and would play no further. Unfortunately, the disc is out of print. It's not even available as a Warner Archives MOD. e-bay came to the rescue as I just ordered a TCM Greatest Classics...

    I attempted to watch Roberta (1935) with Astaire & Rogers but alas, after about 10 minutes it started to freeze and sputter. Another one bites the dust :angry:

    I attempted to watch Critic's Choice (1963) with Bob Hope and Lucille Ball tonight. Around the 55 minute mark, it started to freeze, jump and skip until it became unwatchable.

    Another one bites the dust! I was watching Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shut and it froze at the 1:27 mark and would not proceed further!

    I well remember when the Warners Archive MOD program was introduced in 2009 and the hysteria among film collectors that these burned discs would "rot" or go bad in a matter of a few years. 10 years later, I wonder what these naysayers have to say about it now especially with the irony of the...

    I've been buying Warner Archives MOD discs since day one and have yet to have one go bad on me. It's the pressed discs that are going bad over time!

    With the sad news of Albert Finney's passing, I attempted to watch Shoot The Moon but at chapter 16, it sputters before skipping to chapter 17 and it played fine from then on.

    Out of that set, all have played fine except for Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf? which wouldn't play at all.

    Not a Warners movie but in 2007 Warner Bros. home entertainment pressed and distributed a box set of BBC productions of Henrik Ibsen called The Henrik Ibsen Collection consisting of 10 plays. A recent view of the collection showed that two of those productions would no longer play: the 1988 The...

    I stand to be corrected but Bordertown is a MOD title rather than a pressed title. The problem isn't with Warners MOD discs which began in 2009 and so far have not shown any problems with films going bad (original pressing bad, yes but not good pressings going bad after several years)...

    I've been buying MODs from the Warners Archives since 2009 and I've never had one go bad on me yet. Yes, I've gotten ones right out of the shrinkwrap that wouldn't work but never had one "go bad" after several years unlike the pressed Warners discs.

    For about the last 7 years, on my master list of DVDs and blu rays in my collection, I have been adding the date of the last time I viewed the film. It's not going to stop a film from going bad but at least I know it was the last time it played okay. Example below: Arrowhead Arrowsmith 6/11/14...

    Yes, I've had a few Warners pressed discs go bad. Only a couple of weeks ago, The Great Ziegfeld froze up just after the intermission. I tried it on another player just to be sure and it froze up there too. I had Evelyn Prentice from the Powell & Loy set freeze up toward the end and Strike Up...
