Hi, Has anybody else ever experienced DVD Rot ?. Does it really exist ? I just tried to play my Terminator Special edition DVD and on chapter 15 it crapped out. When I look at the disc it has what I can only describe as smooth patches and strange markings. These markings are on both disc 1 and disc 2, both of which have been kept in my living room and away from any sources of heat or damp. AS far as I'm aware its an original dis and not a pirate. The disc has only been played a couple of times and always handled with great care. There's no way this has been caused by mis use, so how can this happen.
