Residue Inside Blu-Ray Cases

I'm new to Blu-Rays (I've only got ten of them), but I've noticed something about every single movie I've bought. There is a light, clear, oily residue on the inside of all my cases. Is this normal or have I just had bad luck?

I think you need to rent less porn.

Nope, I have a few hundred Blu-rays and don't ever recall anything like that...

Maybe your movies were previously viewed by people eating popcorn.

Re: Residue Inside Blu-Ray Cases

I've never heard of anything like that. The closest I've ever had with either blu-ray or dvd is the gunk that sometimes is left over from removing stickers. But I've always been able to get the stuff off by licking then scraping with my fingernails. That usually doesn't leave any marks....especially if I do it really lightly.

Re: Residue Inside Blu-Ray Cases

I think people are picturing some sort of thick, oily goop inside of your cases, which I'm sure is not the case. I have noticed what you're talking about in a few of my cases. It's like someone with oily fingers touched the inside of the case, except the entire inside of the case is covered in it, although it's even "lighter" than that. There was another post in this thread that explained it better I think, but it got lost in the crash.

I did have my copy of Up arrive with 3 fingerprints on the disc. I was going crazy the first time I put that disc in and it was having some playback issues. I updated my firmware and everything, just to finally discover the fingerprints, which were able to be completely wiped off. Nothing unusual about the case, though. Other than that, I haven't noticed anything unusual.

Re: Residue Inside Blu-Ray Cases

Is it possible that this residue is soemthing that allows the cases (which I assumed are stacked on top of each other when transported/stored) to be seperated easily?
