It's still rather irreconcilable to me why disc failures usually ONLY occur with BD~Audio discs and not SACDs, BD~Video discs or DVD~A/DVD discs. In my memory, we've had failures with DSOTM, Byran Adams Reckless, Abbey Road to name a few and the culprit has still not manifested inself!

What gives?

Apparently, there have also been issues with video Blu-rays pressed by Optimal. Given that "Blu-ray Audio" doesn't really exist—a separate standard was proposed, but never implemented, making all "BD-As" technically BD-Vs—this makes perfect sense. Even if there were a separate standard, that would be software-only, just as with DVD-A vs. DVD-V.

The first video disc I can remember failing was the original DVD of "Vertigo". Played fine when I got it but nothing has recognized it for years.

I've also got a DVD of Argento's "Phenomena" that has simply never played. Allegedly they were all like that.

I decided to play my Dark Side of the moon Bluray from the Immersion box set and it doesn't fu#@ing play on any of my players including my Oppo. I have joined the group of people who have a dead Bluray!!!!

I did try to get a replacement with the knowledge that I might have a dead disc and now my worst fears are true.

I am glad I refused to buy the later years box despite the fact that I am a huge fan of pink floyd.

I need to give credit when it is due. Incredibly I received a replacement Bluray disc for my Dark side of the moon failure

I still have grave concerns about Bluray discs technology because of their failure rate.

I got super lucky, I requested a replacement disc from AE Crate email address and they sent it to me, didn't ask for the defective disc to be sent and did not ask for me to pay postage. My disc isn't atually defective, I just can't get my receiver to play the quad on the blu ray, it only plays stereo. So I'm stuck with the DD 640kbps dvd for the Quad.
