It shouldn't be damaged. It was playing fine. I was hitting the forward arrow key skipping through the scenes and punched it a couple of times too many past the end of the last scene.
The player itself shows "title" but the title menu won't come up. the dvd now starts up distorted and jumps to the middle of one of the episodes without any sound and English subtitles. None of the buttons on the remote work with this disk anymore.
This really chaps me. It's the disk with two of my favorite episodes!!!
I don't have any way of making a copy. It's a region 2 dvd and my computer dvd burner will only play region 1.
