An interesting and worrying thread which i have been keeping an eye on Kev. I have yet to check my own collection. I burn my FTDs to the Mac and my Stereo as soon as i buy them...and very rarely ever get the actual discs out of the sleeves. I would be devastated if i found some of them unplayable after such a short period of time ( and only ever played once or twice). If this is the case with the majority of FTD releases...then i too would expect some sort of statement from FTD.

I have moved this thread to the All Elvis section..i think that it needs to be read by any fans who have spent their money on FTDs.....

I don't know what you mean by fog on the surface of CD's or DVD's.
I would suggest you clean CD with cleaning tissue.
The fog may be dirty finger marks.

We had a problem with I Found My Thrill. We used one of those hand wound cd cleaner things and all the 'fog' was removed.

Climate could be an effect on peoples collection. Humidity, cold, etc. I have downloads of all of the FTD's and other titles even if I own the CD. Never hurts to have a back up. I can't wait until they release liquid chip hard drives. The future is bright.

I have had DVD's that won't play.
That turned out that the DVD needed cleaning.
I don't think record companies would send out duff CD's.
If you get sticky playing CD's just give it a good clean.
I don't think there is CD Rot as I think it's just your dirt upsetting your playing.

Here in the US ,I had this issue with the Moody Blue released CD. It's really funny because on the back of the Jewel case is a trademark that states "a lifetime of music" !!
I took it back to the store and they looked at me like idiots never seeing rot before they were stumped. They said go ahead and get another one. I said NO ! I want that one back because I'm making an issue out of it. .......................long and short of it , I contacted a rep at RCA/BMG and said my piece only for having it fall on dead ears and getting a new one mailed. They know they are making trash but wont admit it.................Bring back vinyl !!!
