Hello all,

Over the last few weeks i've had to return several purchased (new - factory fresh) Anime discs that were defective out of the box. The unplayable titles included: Fafner vol.1 (2 discs in a row), Scrapped Princess vol.3, Wandaba Style vol.3, and others i'm too tired to type in. I'm not counting discs that skip & stop - i've had many more of those.

All discs were tested on several DVD-players, and even on PC DVD-ROM drives to verify that the defect was in the disc not my playback setup.

My question is: are any of you folks experiencing a similar spike in defective ROM media?

Thanks,
Wolf.

I had problems with Giant Robo 3 and Ginrei Special, both from Animeworks. Those discs skipped. A friend of mine reported that the DVDs for the new release of the Macross Plus Movie from Manga are mislabeled.

Thanks for your reply. Judging from the response (or lack thereof), I guess we're just unlucky.

Yeah, a while back I had a defective Evangelion Platinum Edition Vol. 1 disc that was bad. It played, but several audio tracks were missing! I sent the disk back and it seemed like it took forever to get a revised disk back from ADV.

Animeondvd.com has an excellent list of defective disks.
