    Does anyone know what kind of DVDs are more prone to this so-called "disc rot" than others?

    What I am talking about is what happens when a certain DVD you're playing skips on a certain episode, that is, doesn't play smoothly. Sometimes, a certain DVD may not play at all because of this condition. And I also take this to mean that the conditions of the affected DVD keep occurring no matter how many times you clean the playable side of the disc.

    Which discs, as I said earlier, are more prone to disc rot than others? As in, which bar code matrices would I look for in a DVD disc of decent quality that would not suffer from disc rot as often?
