    Well Ive had a second opinion that it plays fine in other players like an Oppo.

    I wont give up on this though and I will be like a dog with a bone investigating this further.

    Somethings up and Im not imagining that my players cant handle that disc without vibrating quite badly. I cant see that the spindles in my drives are that much worse for the job in hand than more expensive players.

    I would have thought most video disc drives are based on a lot of plastic now.

    I will have to build up a spindle and investigate this to the nearest micron

    Time to get a new DVD player. I've never had this issue nor has anyone I know and we own thousands of DVDs between us.

    When its happening in several players its not just a case of one player. I have 175 dvds and this problem has occured a handful of times so that is a very low percentage.

    Its clearly attacting a wasting our time vibe but I still think there is something significantly wrong with some discs. It seems to be a problem which Im expected to write off once in a while.

    At least one other person has noticed it and there are reports of vibrating discs in various consoles. I just think they are warped or off centre discs. If I cant get a consensus here, you can imagine how the refund chain would view my claim.

    Anyway I will leave it now and its one of those I will get my coat moments....they happen in life
