Question Brand new "DVD Rot"??

DVD Rot??

I have been accused of wrecking a brand new dvd by a member in my household. She says that my burner destroyed this DVD. Since I had bought it, I exchanged it. BTW, I own about 100 pressed DVDs now and this was the only one I ever had problems with. It would not play in my computer or 4 of my players.

I started doing some research and found this article dated Jan 2003 called DVD rot. LINK

Here is a link to another article that calls it fact or fiction: http://hometheater.about.com/cs/dvdl.../aadvdrota.htm

But the better question is "Can a DVD burner/rom damage a pressed DVD?"

I thought for a drive manufacturer to use the DVD logo/copyright that it could not do damage to a pressed disc. Is this a fallacy?

I have ripped several of my discs numerous times and the originals still play fine. I need some evidence to explain to a newb(ie) why a DVD drive/burner will not harm a pressed DVD.

Thanking you in advance,

Gary D

first off the plastic in the pressed disk is not a phase change organic dye and the laser in read mode is no different from a standalone laser.

heat does destroy pressed disks, a friend at a rental store told me the buffers they use can ruin a disk real quick.

My kids once left a DVD in their player for 4 days when we were camping. I came back and the "burned" disc was unplayable then. I figured it had overheated as I had that movie on a continuous loop for them.

from extensive summer car dash tests, cd-r's seem real sensitive

2 hours in direct sun in a cd wallet will cause fuji's reflective coating to start flakeing

I am bad for this; I have some maxell "deep brown" colored cdr's. After a full summer of "baking" in the car. they turned light yellow & had playability problems; not really skipping, but more of a "screeching" sound when playing some of the tracks, esp. near the end/edge of the disc.
