A person from an HDDVD forum (apparently posted on BluRay Forum) got an issue with HDDVD.
Picture is included.
Have a read.
so Bluray is not the only one that is rotting. HDDVD too.
all optical discs route so what the point of this post ???
The reason all things decay is original sin. Don't worry, we will go to heaven after we decay. I'm not sure about HD-DVD disks, though. Will HD-DVD disks and Blu-Ray disks go to heaven? Only God knows. :)
reason why i said that is because i meant it for HD format.
I didnt know DVD are affected too because i never seen one or heard about it.
This happens to all types of disc media.
The problem is not with the media, it's the fact that it's on Earth, and Earth does not provide ideal conditions.
No digital rotting on digital distribution. Disk are so last gen!
And in case someone says.... what if you hard drive dies... uhhh.. I download again... trying doing that with your disk.
And if i want to take it to a mates house to watch it.
I want to watch it straight away not wait for enough to buffer to see it seemlessly.
You have a slow internet connection
You wanna watch a film and someone else is already using the internet.
haha Cd's are gonna be around for alot longer then you think
I cut my original copies to my HDD to stream them around my house wirelessly. I also transfer the ones I want to my IPod for taking with me on holiday. Damn site easier then carting a wallet full of discs around and it means I can watch them as I travel or on the big screen when I plug the IPod into a TV.
Just like the floppy disc was replaced with CD, CD will one day fall to digital distribution.
Just like the xbox 360.. detach the hard drive.. take it to your friend.. I am sure that a few years from now.. when digital distribution happends all these devices will lend themselves to easly take your content anywhere you go... the same way... you can do today with your xbox 360... I can take my hard drive to my friends house.. and as far as his xbox 360 is concern... it's like I am using my xbox 360... account info, movies, games, game saves, etc.
only 1 year old? thats hard to believe...
Are like Teeth that Rot.
The Sonians of this site continue to never fail to amaze
I've lost several DVD's to that. I even lost a copy of Gran Turismo 3 to disc rot.
The process to stamp discs isn't perfect and sometimes one goes bad. That's just life. Too bad it usually happens months after purchase so you can't exchange it.
defective media that is news!!!!! (not) Come on even with the best Quality control some defective product will get into the trade channel. This is not news.
