While we have just begun to explore collecting dvd's here, I have noticed
from those that I rent at video stores that the discs can get extremely
dirty and scratched. Given the density at which the information is stored
on a dvd, I can only assume that a small scratch would have a more
pronounced effect upon the disc than it would on a cd or laser.
