Just my thoughts -
Maybe some of those DVDs are marginal? Home-burned ones, for instance, show
that problem for me. If I fail to clean the burner reasonably regularly I
get disks that can't be read even though the burn appeared to work. Perhaps
some of the DVDs are slightly worn or damaged in ways not obvious to the
naked eye. CDs, of course, don't pack the data as tightly, so may be easier
Just thoughts and theories - no expert knowledge :-)
