I've just attempted to watch my copy of the original R1 Dances with Wolves DVD (1998, single disc, dual-layered, THX certified, Dolby Digital). All was OK until about 1hr 30 minutes into the movie, when it started skipping, freezing, and after a couple of minutes, froze completely. (so much for modern technology - I'd been looking forward to watching this movie all week ) I'm guessing the problems started around the layer change. I've only played this disc once, when I first purchased it, and so it's in pristine condition - no scratches or dust/dirt. I've read about DVD's deteriorating over time due to faulty manufacturing. Are there any known problems with this DVD? If it is a manufacturing defect, and bearing in mind I live in the UK, does anyone have any suggestions about how I could get my DVD replaced free of charge/who I could contact? Would my complaint be with Orion Home Video, or Image Entertainment (who are mentioned as distributors on the disc)? Many thanks in advance.
