    No, only BD disks are damaged

    Obviously they use cheap discs but overcharge fans
     
  3. I bought all the individual sets - none of my BDs show visible deterioration. I have a mix of retail sets from America and Europe. What's strange is that this isn't a common problem for Blu-rays since 2010 - peeling was an issue solved in the 2000s by manufacturers. It's the protective coating that gets applied to all Blu-rays.

    My sets are perfect. No problems with the blu-rays.

    Stupid question from a non-Blue-Ray-player-owner - does one need some manner of Blue-Ray apparatus to back up B-D discs? Or are they just another flavor of files on my computer? Thanks.

    (I do expect to upgrade one of these centuries....)

    You need a blu ray drive and a program that can extract the files or copy the disc. For file extraction it's tough to beat MakeMKV. It's free and very lightweight. It can also be used with DVDs. Disc copying is another story. You may need to purchase a program for that (I did). Perhaps others can chime in on programs they use for making ISO (exact disc copy) of blu rays.

    Reese Why did you say 'Burma'?

    I use AnyDVD. While this is not free, the cost of the software is trivial compared to the potential cost of losing your collection of blu-rays. Also not trivial is the time involved in making the backups and the cost of finding a place to store all the giant ISO files.

    I should mention that I use ImgBurn in conjunction with AnyDVD to create faithful ISO images of blu-rays (and burn copies of those discs). ImgBurn is free. AnyDVD unlocks the disc; ImgBurn copies it.

    That isn't true. MakeMKV will back up a full blu-ray as well. Once you put the disc in the drive you have the option to back up.
    Once you scan the disc, you lose that option.

    Oh hey. Learned something new. I never noticed that "Backup" button before. Thanks!

    Backing up is wise, but shouldn't be necessary...hope for a resolution. Already spent enough on this set....

    Good morning hopefully I can get an answer to this question. I was reading Glenn Povey's excellent Floyd day by day book and Point Me At The Sky was performed along with Set the Controls and Saucerful on 25th January 1969 for a French TV station. The footage in TEY is lovely (David wears a great hat) and has a nice sound. Unfortunately there is no Point Me At The Sky. Was it not recorded or available for the box? I have not checked U Tube yet to see if it is on there somewhere.

    I remember someone said earlier in the thread that only 28000 of these boxes were produced. Well, they're still available, so I guess that number was horribly wrong.

    You really think they've sold 28,000 of these boxes already? I think you overestimate the market size.

    Perhaps he means that the decision to create 28,000 of these boxes was a wrong estimate of how many they could sell? No way they unload 28,000 of these at $500/pop.

    I don't think that many copies of boxing were sold for full price. I bought my copy at very comfortable price £139.65 (including delivery) by amazon.co.uk

    It was only a matter of a few hours, if that. I ordered one and by the time I went back to order one for a friend, they were out. The price was never near that again, that I recall.

    Well, I did pay 500€.
    And tbh, until I found out that the discs were rotting, I found it a worth purchase.

    Yeah, that 's it. If I remember correctly, it was January 7 for ~ 30 minutes. I was lucky to make my order.

    I was really unhappy I'd paid the full price of £375 but pleased a few got lucky. That £375 isn't the full story, hardware and BD blanks to burn the 5.1 Meddle cost me another £1oo and something, so about £500 in the end.
