Not long ago I pulled out the Disney Treasures set "Mickey Mouse In Living Color Volume 2" after not having watched it in years. The first disc will not play on two different DVD players. It says "disc error." Other sets of the same vintage are fine, as is the second disc. I don't remember when I last played it, but whenever that was, it was fine.

Anyone else have this happen?

Not me; mine is fine.

Your disc is probably damaged beyond readability. Sorry.

It hasn't happened to me with this volume, but it did happen on the second disc of my copy of the first volume. I will never forget how much of a struggle it was to get a replacement for it!

Welcome to DVD rot. Although I've not heard of it being such a problem with Disney. Warner Brothers had a lot of animated releases, mostly TV stuff, from the 2006-2008 era, as well as feature films, that have been failing in high numbers in the past few years. Some old Fox releases were affected also. It had to do with the replication vendor they used at that time. Although WB has at least been pretty good at providing replacements. There's a whole thread about it at HTF.

At the end of the day though DVD did not have the longevity built into it that Blu-ray (supposedly) has. If I ever get around to digging out my copy I'll try to test it. I keep digital copies of everything for this reason.
