Are any of you Movie buying junkies out there like me having nightmare problems with sub standard dvd discs .I am constantly having problems with small hairline cracks appearing in the inner holes edge.I think this is for 2 reasons .The first is the adhesive that binds the 2 disk layers together is not sufficiently reaching the inner edge and that the 2 unstuck edges are catching on the dvd discbox holder. The second is that the holders that you press the dvd onto in the box's are way too tight.I do buy alot of dvds so perhaps I get more cracked or damaged discs than other folks but this to me is unacceptable no matter how big or small the problem is .is anyone else having problems or knows how to fix the cracked discs.At the moment I am having to repurchase damaged dvds as I am afraid they will crack further and then i'll be without the film.

I have the same with my Terminator 2 disc - that's slightly cracked right in the middle. I just wonder if it can cause any problems when playing - I mean there is no information on there but dos it affect the DVD spinning in the machine??
Another pet hate is the old Warner Bros cardboard cases - disgraceful!

Cds are a problem too - esp jewel cases for compilations that hold 5 or 6 discs. They are ridiculously fragile and the swingy bits inside soon break!
And don't get me started about that sphincter shaped thing in the middle that holds the discs - when the teeth break off and the disc either falls out onto the floor or (especially when in transit from Amazon) rattles round in the box and getting scratched to high heaven.

Great post - I thought it was only me this paranoid!!

You could always make a legal backup Disney Dave.

That backup would then play perfectly in the DVD player.
