    Disc Rot

    My CDs are beginning to become unplayable. For You to Controversy all are letting light shine through the discs.
    I noticed Morris Day's Day Dreaming has a gumball size hole in the metal. Anyone else having this happen?

    Gladly, I don't, I ripped them the moment I got them and put them into my vault. All I use are my personal CD Burns! dj

    I don't believe this is from over use, but rather oxidation. The MD cd had only been played a couple of times.

    The odd CD yes. Some of them LOOK as if they couldn't play, but still do.

    I've found DVDs to be a lot more deteriorative (if that's a word). But that might be coincidence.

    I remember buying my first CD (back in the early 1990s) think, I now have this album in perfect condition for the rest of my life.  Laughing
    I have since bought the album 5 times again (in different formats and remasters), and the original CD box lies unloved somewhere in the attic ...

    The early LP reissues on CD were rather cheaply made.  Cost corners were cut in order to make a wider selection available for the newly affordable medium in the '80s.  Around the time of the Dire Straits album that was issued on CD only they stopped that nonsense.  It can happen, but more frequently with the earlier releases.
