Has anybody else seen an increase in DVDs not playing in their DVD players? We have had at least six DVDs in the last month that will not play in up to half our players. The players are from different companies and some are brand new. It not only DVD-R's but major motion picture releases like Wall-e. Also, we have had problem with multi-region players with Level 2 DVDs. Is there a problem with manufacturing lately? Or, is this unique to our Library?

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
