Also, my original copy of Anchor Bay Entertainment's 2001 release of SpaceCamp had developed DVD rot years ago.

SpaceCamp (0-13131-14069-9)


I remember buying that DVD brand new (with the top security seal intact and all) and the disc would not even load in multiple players. The play surface of the disc was also an odd color.

The same exact thing happened with The Stepford Wives from Anchor Bay, which was also released in 2001.

What have others found?

Apologies it was Season 1 of ER Purchased around 2002 I think.

This is Sin City's Policy:
Defective DVDs
Many DVDs can be played on a computer, or in a DVD-R drive, but play of the movie is not generally guaranteed by the manufacturer, unless specifically noted on the product page at www.sin-city-video.com. To determine if a DVD is defective, we request you try to view the movie on a standard DVD player. Because of the rapidly changing technology in DVD production, recent-model DVD players (less than two years old) are most likely to successfully play the movie for you.
It is our experience that at times DVDs reported as defective are actually simply incompatible with the viewer's DVD player. However, we will happily honor the defective product policy and exchange the DVD with a replacement. Before sending the replacement DVD, we will open and test the title for you, to ensure that it plays on a standard DVD player.

Tron: 20th Anniversary Collector's Edition
- UPC: 786936161878
- Release date: 15/01/2002
- Purchase date: 12/01/2002 - my supplier at the time must have had an early shipment

I only tried to watch it in 2010, the movie played for about half, so I assume up until the layer change.
I can't see anything wrong with the disc, but it just freezes. I purchased the Blu-Ray last year.

Boogie Nights, the old New Line snapper release.  It worked about a decade ago when I last watched it, but a few months back I tried to play it and no DVD player I had could read the disk.

I have had a few,

The entire Star Wars SE box set, worked when I bought them, and through several viewings. Wentto watch them a year or so ago, and they would just skip and lock up. Looking at the discs they all seem to have the look of a water stain under the clear layer of the disc.

Ghost in the Shell : Solid State Society - Never played quite right

Ghost in the Shell : Innocents - Always had an issue as well.

Re bought both on BluRay

Came across another disc today which appears to have developed disc rot.  The DreamWorks original DVD release for The Mexican (UPC: 6-6706878222-6) which appears to have been manufactured by Technicolor.

EDIT:  Whew, I didn't need to replace the disc.  I was looking at the tags in my DVD Profiler database and remembered at some point I had two copies (purchased a duplicate).  The second copy is still good.

The good copy has a silver appearance where as the bad on has a gold appearance.

Anchor Bay had a series of discs in about 2001 that had bad lacquer applied to them; I'm thinking that Crest National was the culprit.  Among those titles:

Frankenstein Created Woman
Heathers
The Witches
and probably a couple more that I can't remember.

They pretty much all rotted within the first year if they were going to rot at all.

Anchor Bay had a replacement program for them for a while, but they no longer have the rights to the Hammer titles so you're out of luck there.

The only DVD I have which "rotted" (that I know of  ) is Warner Brothers' Altered States (1980) [085391107620]. Here's hoping that Blu-rays last forever!
