Hey all,
I need the collected wisdom of the list! Do CD/DVD scratch repair
machines really work? We've recently begun buying and circulating DVDs,
and now have about 100 or so. It seems that, compared to VHS, many more
DVDs come back to me with notes along the lines of "patron says ending
wouldn't play" or "picture is broken up". We've been thinking the
problem is some patrons' lower end machines, because when I test them,
they work fine. Other times, they come back completely hosed. I guess we
need to either invest in one of these machines, (kinda stiff for our
budget!) or re-evaluate whether we really want to continue buying DVD's.
My director feels that's the way the market is headed, but I'm on the
fence...
Any advice would be awesome!
Thanks,
Jen Stutesman
