    I've only begun buying DVD's recently and my copy of TOtal Recall gets all glitchy at the start of ch.14 every time. It happens nowhere else on the disc and there appear to be no visable scratches. Is it a defective disc?

    I don't know where the layer change is on that disc, but that sounds like the most likely problem. Mine plays fine, so try exchanging it for a new copy.
    What player are you using?

    It's a Panasonic DVD-RV31. I have no other problems with the disc or with any others and it won't skip on my DVD-ROM drive. I'm pretty sure it's the disc because, like I said, the player doesn't do it any other time.

    Yup, sounds like a disc issue.

    I just checked my copy and the layer change is not at the beginning of chapter 14. This does sound like a defective disc, though. You might wanna exchange it for a new copy.

    I happens between the time when Meleena closes the door to her room, slaps Quaid, and he says, "I guess he didn't." The glitch effects are different every time, but only in that time period. I will exchange it today.

    So I'm reading this thread an I'm wondering to myself, "I wonder if this disc will be totally recalled"?

    All right, now this is ridiculous. Just for hahas, I take the DVD to another DVD here on campus (a JVC XV-501). Guess what? Like my DVD-ROM, no skip. WHAT GIVES? Is my player incompatible with those 7 seconds of the movie?
