Do your cds still play, Mike?


Yes, they still play but I hate that foggy blemish :x. Will try to clean it with cd cleaner solution, hope it works but I doubt it....Thanks!. Bye for now :smt006.

Hopefully the fog will be OK. I have some DVDs (mostly Paramount ones) that fogged up 8 or 9 years ago, and they're still playing OK. It's the bronzing or other visible rot that hopefully will never happen to an FTD. Although I guess it'd be hard to sell a foggy FTD on the used market.

It is disappointing that this issue continues.

While I don't have those book/cd combo's mentioned, I certainly sympathize with you all, as it is very distressing.

Mike, just curious regarding your copy of Disc 1 of Fashion for a King. Near the end of track 1, is there a slight flutter in the words "very much" when Elvis says Thank you very much for the 2nd time? It sounds like a digital tape error.

My foggy FTD

Sweet, comic FTD.

I used alcohol substance once, at first it seemed to remove some of the fog. But suddenly the whole disc crumbled in my hands. Bits and pieces of aluminium and plastic.. The alcohol just kinda burned through it. Bye, bye, music.

Be careful with alcohol, boys! :wink: Better drink it instead of pouring it onto your FTD!

Too hot water also doesn't seem to be a good idea, the thing can become unglued.

Why the hell don't they bring something onto the market that is unscratchable, unfogg-able, just plain durable?

All this fog-business is one big commercial for cheap downloading, which is sad and will eventually kill the FTD label.

I have just checked my copy and my cd does the same as yours and in the same place, so you don't have to be worry about having a faulty cd :wink:. Bye for now :smt006.
