I am curious if my dvd player is scratching my dvds. I recently purchased a brand new dvd from Best Buy and watched it in my dvd player. When I took the DVD out, I noticed a large scratch on the media side of the DVD. Being I take good care not to damage my dvds, this could only have two real causes. 1. The dvd was scratched from the manufacturer, or 2. the DVD player scratched it. I have not noticed that any of my other dvds have been scratched, but I am also not putting any new one in the machine. This leads me to my question. The dvd player is the type that has a tray the ejects out and you place the dvd in the middle like the type commonly used in computers. Does the dvd get lifted off the tray when it spins or does it spin on the tray itself? I cant imagine that the dvd would spin on the tray because it would be constantly grinding against the plastic. If anyone has any insight into this, I would be greatly appreciative.
