I don't know if any of you experienced this, but I've seen this on several occasions:

In some cases, the DVD-disc starts eventually showing cracks (from the inside out) when I click it back in its casing.
It could be due to temperature changes expanding the plastic, but I don't think so...

Have any of you encountered this before, and is there any sure way of preventing this from happening?

PS: I think this is especially so with 2-dvd casings like Gladiator, where the first disc is in a seperate "slim holder"

could this be due to cr*ppy plastic used in the fabrication process?
My disc also still plays, but for how long?
I'm pretty disappointed about this. I've never seen a cd break like that...

CD's don't crack as easily, since they're one-sided, solid
discs. DVD's are made of two thin "halves" which are bonded "back-to-back" to form the disc. They are more fragile than CD's, so they do not tolerate the pressure on the center hole from flexing or removal from stubborn cases.
