Clint Eastwood 40 film dvd Collection Issues???

The question you have to ask yourself - Is this possibly a bootleg or counterfeit set? Tons of large DVD sets on eBay are fakes. The fakes are often poorly made and unreliable.

There's also the issue of many old Warner sets having layer separation issues - depends on when/where they were made. DVD18s (likely what the OP has) are especially problematic no matter *who* made them.

Yeah, the defect rate for DVD-18s was always higher. Some studios actually stopped using them because of complaints and eventually would reissue some sets in DVD-9 form.

If it's this set -->
Amazon Amazon
<-- then it's likely a defective piece of shit.

It's a Warner release, and their boxed sets are notorious for having defective discs. People have had similar problems with the Superman and Harry Potter boxes, in addition to random discs, they released around that time. There's a high rate of failure and disc rot in Warner titles released around that time. We've got a whole thread on the subject in this forum.

You can click the link to the Amazon page and see all of the negative reviews complaining about discs that won't play.

I got the set back when it was new and the way they sandwiched doublesided discs between carboard was just stupid and I think i had problems with over half of the movies from the very start. it was just a poorly designed set with no quality control and coupled with Warners bad discs it was just a bad experience all around

You didnít mention whether or not you tried the discs on multiple machines or just one. It quite possible that your machine could be at fault.
