Frank,
Could you send me information on Aural Tech? Website, pricing, etc? We
have this problem constantly here - even with brand new DVD's that have
no visible damage. I actually have doubts that it's because they're
*all* mishandled - complaints even come from people who claim to have
almost-new DVD players, with new DVD's. I'm now wondering if it's the 3m
security strips...Most haven't started skipping until chapter 15 or 20.
So far, I've only withdrawn about 8 out of a couple hundred, but
still...
Thanks!

to a company here in Washington state called Aural Tech for
resurfacing. Itís lots cheaper than replacing the disk but it is a
hassle.
