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

    I have a few of these sets, and knock on my head, but they have all been OK. They were either purchased in Canada, or the Buffalo area, so perhaps they are from a different pressing plant. I bought the individual DVDs of the Astaire/Rogers movies, and was distressed to discover later, that if...

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

    At the dawn of the DVD age, “my friend” bought a legal copy of a program which removed copy protection from discs. He borrowed the majority of the discs mentioned in this thread over a number of years from the public library. His copies of these discs still play like brand new, even on the...

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

    I do not have a lot of Warners titles. Most of my DVDs of movies from the classic era are recorded from TCM, but I do have some commercial releases. I often check any that appear in this thread and haven't had a problem yet. (I am knocking on my head as I say this!) All my discs from the early...

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

    As a Canadian, it’s hard for me to accept that we would have a substandard plant here. I know when I worked at Chrysler going to University, the Canadian plants always were named the most efficient etc. in the company.

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

    Is it possible these discs were not distributed everywhere? I buy almost everything from Amazon.com and have them set to my P.O. box in Buffalo. Touch a lumber yard, but I have yet to have a problem with the titles mentioned.

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

    Is there a specific reason why these Warner’s DVDs are going bad? Is it a specific plant, or range of years of manufacture?

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

    This is almost exactly what I do. I always intend to watch them again, “as soon as I finish watching the new ones I buy and make”, but this never seems to happen, and I have been retired for 9 years. The same was true with my VHS and Beta collections. When I switched over to Blu ray, and double...
