Help.. is this BD rot or something else?
« on: Aug 21, 2016 at 07:10 PM »
got the Rambo BD boxset sometime now and decided to watch it again yesterday...part 1 and 2 BDs played well without any problem..but when i inserted part 3 an error message just pop-up " this disc does not fit the specifications"... whoaa... what the....? have watched this boxset before without any hiccups, and now, this happens!
i had my share of dvd rot and its was visibly obvious for dvds since the disc itself exhibits some surface irregularities...yet for this BD, nothing of that sort is obvious... the disc itself is physically immaculate...
so, seeking the assist from the  pdvd gurus for any feedback .... :( :(

If that happens to me I'll try loading the disc in my other bd players to check first.

Bluray discs (like the CD and DVD discs) eventually rot.

I have a set of DIE HARD bluray discs and the 3rd disc became unplayable. I have several bluray players which I used to test all the discs in that set and the same disc failed everytime. The disc had no scratches.

I can only suspect that the material used in manufacturing the disc wasn't of durable quality OR that the harsh Philippine weather had something to do with it. Or both.

Since I don't have a dedicated temperature-controlled storage room big enough for my insane collection of original CDs (from way back in the 1980s), DVDs and BDs, I have routinely succumbed to ripping the ones that I really like into digital format.
