    Has anyone heard of or tried this product called D-Skins which are DVD/CD protectors ? Like a "condom" for DVD/CD [​IMG]

    I have not yet purchased any but looks interesting. Looking for pros and cons before I would buy.

    Gamestop sells a 5 pack for 5.99.


    Q: How do d_skin™ Protective Disc Skins™ work?
    A: d_skin™ Protective Disc Skins™ are a combination of the latest developments in micro-resin engineering and hi-tech manufacturing. The patent pending laser transparent Skin™ and micro-engineered outer ring technology are breakthroughs in disc protection. The ultra-thin Skin™ forms a protective barrier around your discs that render them nearly impervious to scratches and the cruelties of an active life. The outer ring is securely fused to the laser transparent Skin™ to keep the Skin™ firmly attached to your discs at all times, even while they play.

    Q: Did you say this stays on while you play the disc?
    A: Yes! d_skin™ Protective Disc Skins™ are so thin that your discs can be read right through them. No distortion, no skipping, no problems, just pure entertainment . . . the way it was intended to be. Put a d_skin™ Protective Disc Skin™ on all of your discs and play them at home, in your car or in your game consoles. If the Skin™ ever gets scratched just throw it away and put a new one on. Your entertainment survives.

    Q: Does it affect the way the way the discs play?
    A: No. Discs store data digitally and the laser transparent Skin™ of the d_skin™ Protective Disc Skin™ does not alter the quality. Digital information is either on or off, the quality remains perfect, just as it was recorded.

    Q: Can a d_skin™ Protective Disc Skin™ get scratched? If so, then what?
    A: Yes, the d_skin™ Protective Disc Skin™ itself can get scratched, but the beauty is, your disc has been protected. Just toss the scratched Skin™ and snap on a fresh one.

    Q: What products will the d_skin™ Protective Disc Skins™ work on?
    A: d_skin™ Protective Disc Skins™ work on PlayStation®, PlayStation®2, Xbox™, computer games, DVD’s, music CD’s and data CD’s.

    Q: How do you apply a d_skin™ Protective Disc Skin™?
    A: First, clean any surface dust and marks from your game. Place the edge of the disc under one or two snaps with the readable side (shiny side without the label) against the d_skin™ Protective Disc Skin™. Proceed to snap the rest of the tabs on around the disc ensuring all 8 tabs are snapped securely in place.

    Q: I’ve put it on my disc and it now my disc doesn’t work, now what?
    A: Remove the Skin™ and clean your disc. Replace the Skin™ and ensure that all the tabs are securely in place.

    Q: Can you reuse the d_skin™ Protective Disc Skin™.
    A; The d_skin™ Protective Disc Skins™ are made to be left on discs at all times and are designed for single application. You can take them off, however taking them on and off repeatedly may result in breakage of the Skin™. If the Skin™ gets scratched, simply unsnap each tap to remove it from the disc and replace with a new one.

    Q: I’ve heard that scratching the top is what destroys a disc, not the bottom.
    A: That is correct, scratching the top of a disc will destroy it. However, the top of discs are much more difficult to scratch because of the labels that are already on the discs. It is much easier and much more common to scratch the readable side of the disc. d_skin™ Protective Disc Skins™ are the only way to prevent scratches to the readable side.

    If you want to know more, keep reading…

    Q: Ever wonder how a disc works? Here's the science behind it.
    A: Much like the human body a disc has several layers or "skins" that perform vital functions to operate properly. Disc's actually have five distinct layers that allow them to play. d-skin™ Protective Game Skins™ ultra-thin laser transparent Skin™ acts as another layer of protection giving you a first line of defense against scratches.

    Q: Umm . . . ok, that's interesting, but you were explaining how a disc works?
    A: Right. A disc player's laser beam enters the disc on the play side (bottom, shiny side). It travels through the first layer of clear plastic that provides protection from scratches "yeah right." This clear plastic actually makes up the bulk of the weight and depth of a disc. The laser then passes through the data layer and reads the information on the disc. The beam then bounces off the reflective layer, travels back through the clear plastic layer and into the player where it is converted into data and sound.

    Q: But wait, that was only 3 layers. I thought you said there were 5?
    A: You were actually paying attention? Fantastic! Ok, the other two layers the laser never touches. There is a protective skin behind the reflective layer and then the final layer allows a label to be printed on it. Happy now?

    Q: Mostly. So tell me again about d_skin™?
    A: d-skin™ Protective Disc Skins™ provide a protective layer around your disc to prevent scratches even while playing. Snaps On. Play On™. Always On. It's that simple. End Disc Death™!

    I have a 6 CD changer in my new car and it specifically says not to use discs with this type of covering because they will jam the player...caveat emptor (I think that's it...)
