Hi Travis,

I'm surprised that 3M sold you the donut security strips. They do cause
problems for DVDs. 3M now has a new security system that covers the
entire DVD. It has 2 security strips embedded in a clear plastic sheet
that covers the DVD and does not make it unbalanced. They work very well.
We tried the donuts at first and had nothing but trouble.
