Disc rot rears its head on Blu-Ray format (The Prestige)
 
http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=857067

Looks like several copies of "The Prestige" on Blu-Ray are rotting with little specs on the disc, rendering the disc unplayable. Note that most of these users indicate that the discs looked perfectly fine when they first bought them.

On a related note, while any new optical format may be prone to disc rot, hopefully HD DVD will be less susceptible to it since it is based on the proven DVD manufacturing process.

FWIW, I have had more disc rot with Sony CDRs than any other make. I have almost exclusively used Fuji, but times when I have used Sony, they have been absolute crap.

More Gigabytes == more rot! oops!

BD should be ready for release in a few years, sucks to beta test it for Sony.

I wonder if the little dweeb thinks I care!

I just checked his recent posts, he's a little liberal. Bye bye little liberal!

Reports are now coming in from various members that The Departed on BD and Stranger Than Fiction are popping up with the same issue.

OMGZ! Bad discs. Zoinks. Hope you gave us a play by play report on HD DVD's bad discs (Hollywoodland, Children of Men, Smokin' Aces, and The Good Shepherd), too... ;)

Then again, that problem was a lot more widespread. Those pesky flippers...
