    Several of my friends who have finally gotten off the fence to buy DVD players have run into problems with DVD rentals. More specifically, several of the DVD's rented were virtually unplayable because of scratches or dirt probably caused by earlier renters. It seems that those renting from our local blockbuster are not so gentle with the DVD's they bring home.

    Now I know some players do a better job than others in playing problem DVD's but are DVD's too delicate for repeated rough usage by renters?

    Unless there is a scratch that you can see most DVDs will work after you clean them. Most of the time its finger prints or some other smudge that prevents the laser light from reflecting properly. By just wiping the disk carefully you should be able to get most of them to work properly.

    That's something else important about educating Joe6pack is that dvds are very sensetive. They treat them like cds, and if anybody who has borrowed cds will see that people don't treat them well also.
