Does anyone have any experience with the 3M security overlays for
DVDs? After using them for a new opening collection, we contacted 3M about
a high rate of discs that would not play. They acknowledged a problem with
application that can be avoided by using their application kit. The discs
that would not play, or kept freezing, were slightly warped when the
overlays were applied. So, we received instructions on removing the
overlays and re-applying using these kits. The kit consists of a rubber
mat that guides the user in keeping the disc flat to prevent this
warping. What a nightmare! We are currently trying to find out which of
our hundreds of DVDs are affected in this way, and whether it is cost
effective to try to fix them. Anyone else experience this?
