Default Can't believe I haven't heard of this till today...

Disc rot ... the achilles heel of all optical discs ffs.

Turns out the hype about the high longevity of CDs and other optical media was just that...

RIP video game, DVD and blu-ray collection in future.

never experienced it so far, even my old PS1 discs work excellently, had a blast on GT4 recently without any glitches

and tbh if I did find a random DVD is fucked I'd probably not really care, they're worth pence these days and usually available on netflix or amazon if I really wanted to watch them

I think my original of 2005 Xbox game Burnout Revenge may have succumbed to this, it has it round the outer edge. Funnily enough I later got the 360 version off ebay and despite looking fine, it wouldn't install, it got to like 7% and couldn't read any more. Cleaning it didn't help. Points to there being an issue with EA's choice of disc pressing company at the time.

There's been people who bought blu-ray movies which suffered disc rot within a short time, like a year. Obviously due to manufacturing errors rather than an inherent blu-ray issue. But the fairly widespread reports of disc rot is absolutely not just due to manufacturing process errors. Those are just the ones which go bad quickly. Even perfectly made discs are going bad too, and quicker in humid environments (like Britain with its atlantic climate).

Unsurprisingly, double Dee is having a sky-is-falling-down moment over this.

Yes, it affects some discs, but ze's already convinced zirself that a few dozen forum posts mean the imminent death of the literal billions upon billions of discs which have been manufactured.
