    Just wanted to pass on my experiences with Ritek dye disks back in the day of DVD's. Sure, they worked great when they were new, but so many of mine deteriorated with time. I used them mainly for backing up movies & these disks were the mutts nuts for video in their day. Sounds a bit of a wild statement but some disks start to play okay & then break up & finally freeze. That's on a Denon 1942 player that use to play them fine. shove the same Ritek disks into a PC & they are fine. I'd say I have about a 75% fail rate on the DVD player now & I even had the Denon serviced to take the laser out of the equation. Kodak GOLD were simply stunning in their day too though these days, I use Verbatim branded for single sided & Aone for dual sided.

    The amazing thing about this anomaly for me is that Ritek dye media has failed where Amiga Floppys are still banging away.
