    the online dvd rental places (lovefilm & screenselect etc) i've used send out discs in a truly shocking state! scratches all over the playing surface.

    can these scratched discs damage my player & should i worry?

    No they can't damage your player. There's only a laser reading the disc, not an actual physical contact like on a vinyl record with a needle.

    The only problem you might have is if your player can't read badly scratched discs.
