Could someone comment on the differences between DVD and
Laserdisc? Are DVD's more or less durable? Why? Do people
anticipate having more damage with DVD than they do with their lasers?
How much damage have people had with laser? Since we (like
everyone else) are moving toward DVD, I'd like to know if we should
think about putting additional procedures in place to anticipate these
potential DVD damage problems. Thanks for all your comments -
