About a year and a half ago, I ordered some hard-to-find TV shows on DVD from a pack of fly-by-nites.
Virtually all of the DVDs had serious problems, including about 1/4 of the episodes that were flat out unwatchable. They have been deteriorating rapidly since then, some discs now containing eposidoes none of which can be watched in their entirity.
I checked some of the discs out with Nero CD/DVD speed, and they all report TYG002 DVD+R media burned on some Pioneer drive.
The only thing I can think of is the paper labels welded onto each disk, I read here that these can cause problems and read errors, and well, I’m having plently of that with this lot. For reference, I have never used paper labels on DVD±Rs and most likely never will. The company supplying this stuff appears to have stopped trading (Gee, I wonder why? )
Any suggestions on how I might go about removing these labels? They seem to be stuck hard on.
