I swear, how do people abuse their NetFlix disks? I've had three disk issues in less than a month:
For the first two I just plopped the disk in and played. The HD-DVD was fairly new and when it started to hang I confess I don't know whether it was the disk or the Xbox player because the disk looked pristine. Fortunately, it is a hybrid disk and we were able to resume in the regular DVD player by flipping it over.
For Ten Things I Hate About You I looked at the disk after it arrived and my first thought was, "Oh, this is trouble." The disk was a birds nest of scratches and circular cleaning. Sure enough, half-way through this great sick-day movie (where I assume the DVD player was shifting to the next layer), it started skipping and pixelating.
This is where I'm going to be much happier to just download the content and know that I don't have to worry about physical media mishaps. One future experiment for me will be doing my first Xbox 360 HD download of The Departed and see how that goes.
