    Basically, it's a thin protective film that you put on the data side of a CD (or DVD). It helps prevent scratches, and it stays on while you play the disc (apparently, it's removable too). However, I'm very skeptical about it, and I was wondering if anyone had used these?

    I'm sure that this would be useful for video-rental stores. Although, I'm guessing this wouldn't work too well for double-sided discs...

    That site says nothing about DVD's...only CD's, games and Data. I wouldn't try it on a DVD if they don't specifically mention it. (Unless they did and I missed it) I'm assuming they don't mention DVD because the that protective skin might interfere with the ability to read dual layers?

    Hmm... that's true. For some reason, I assumed that they were for both DVDs and CDs.

    Local mom and pop video store tried them on their titles and my player did not like them so...off they went.
