PLAYBACK ANNOYANCES

DIRTY DISCS DISTORT VIDEO

The Annoyance:

I spent 50 cents at a yard sale for a DVD of my favorite western, "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly." But when I popped the movie into my laptop, it played for about 10 minutes and then started to hesitate and break up into weird colored blocks.

The Fix:

Your disc is simply dirty. What do you expect for fifty cents? Remove the disc and use a lint-free eyeglass-cleaning cloth to gently wipe fingerprints and other debris off the disc. Now you can watch Clint, Lee, and Eli in all their wide-screen, spaghetti western glory.
