1 Disc DVD + R has some protection on both sides of the disc for scratches are not damaged data and does not damage the disc reading?

2 Discs DVD + R grab and generate fungi? never seen it but there are people who say that if a disc has fungus and it is put into drive DVD drive that will be contaminated and every record I put this drive will be contaminated? I’m worried I do not know anything about fungi

Before even considering helping this person, please review these two train wreck threads over at Videohelp.com:

He has been provided answers many times, and yet continues this nonsense.

It seems like the solution is obvious. Who has the ban hammer?

spoke many things that do nothing to do with the questions these forums above does not answer my questions and clarified anything for me so I ask the help of this forum:

1 if I put the disc with fungus on the dvd drive, this drive will be contaminated by traces of the fungus from the hard disk and the entire dvd I put this drive will be contaminated by traces of the fungus present in the drive?

2 Disc DVD + R has some protection on Both Sides of the disc for scratches date are not damaged and does not damage the disc reading?

  1. Absolutely!!! I have ruined several drives the way. Check your discs for fungus with a black light before putting any disc in your drives. However, if they have fungus you can kill the fungus by putting the disc in the microwave on high for 10 seconds, 20 if you want to be extra cautious.

  2. Yes, there is a super hard coat on both sides of the disc. The “coat” is extremely hard to damage. It’s required by the DVD+R spec. You can check for it with 120 grit sandpaper. If the disc scratches it’s a bad disc and you should return them as defective.

Thanks for letting me know about the links Drage. Don’t know what happened there. I’ve corrected them in my post.

You are on a short leash here, and this thread will be locked down long before it gets to the stage of your posts at Videohelp. I suggest you go look back through the serious answers in your threads over there.

You ask the same questions one more time in this thread and its over. This is your final warning.

To hell with a microwave . In Texas we have a virulent strain of DVD disc fungus .
I’ve see whole computers disappear in a hour after a fungus contaminated DVD is played.
I heat them in the gas oven for an hour at 600° F. Then dip them in sulfuric acid. All the time wearing a surgical mask & heavy duty rubber gloves.
After using the method above take the DVD to a lab to test for fungus.
The lab will find it is completely gone.

(Kerry, please feel to delete this.)

Stereo, do yours turn into zombies and start gobbling up other disks, then they roll into Players and turn themselves on, endlessly, just like other Zombie Disks do? (I really hate that. Wake up in the night, seeing a bunch of infected disks rolling and hopping, swaying back and forth like Triffids or something. Gee, I don’t like Surface Tablets doing that on picnic tables - why would I want my fungi disks to do it either? I don’t!)

I haven’t tried that 120-grit, by the way. Hubby said to use the ballpeen and awl instead, especially if I suspect bad-sectors. “Go ahead and punch them out.” I learned that if I super-heat the awl tip, I can cauterize those bad-sector edges, too. Get the hotdog on the sticks, and leave the awls in the coals for a while… all-in-one cooking!

They sure do! You really have to make sure they don’t feed after midnight or else it’s game over.


#14

Ah yes… “after midnight”… and to think, JJ just passed away, too… probably for all of these reasons.


#15

I smell a new replacement series for AMC. Cholla’s probably getting his million dollar paychecks now as the creative director.

Since the tone of this thread has descended into fantasy land, I’m closing it now. The only other option is to move it to the Living Room, and I’d rather not risk the Wrath of Dee and Arachne.

Apologies to Pepst and Arachne for barging into their forum, but I did give notice about this poster earlier.

This thread is closed.
