Merrily watching STUDIO 60. Suddenly, the fourth disk starts glitching like crazy. But, I remember I had bought a replacement set. I was watching the wrong disks!

So, popped in the replacement disk 4 and——glitch glitch glitch!!!

What???

Anybody have (helpful) thoughts on what’s going on?

Do the other disc still play? The question is, is it the
disc(s) or is it the player?

It's just the fourth disk, as I said.

Skimming through the Amazon reviews, this stood out under One Star:

I love Aaron Sorkin and he can do no wrong in my book but these DVDs came with 3 damaged parts where it would skip over including the complete final episode! That is simply unforgivable. Series is great, do yourself a favor and watch it, just get it somewhere else.

This is how no good deed goes unpunished! I loved the show so much I gave the boxed set—which was fine— to a friend. Bought another. Repeat. Watching the third set and——-

Have you tried cleaning the disc, or dusting the tray on
the player? A brand new disc played perfectly last week,
then 2 days later, it kept freezing. I gently wiped both
the disc and tray, and it worked perfectly. I have no
idea if it was dust, grease or pet hair, but these
things do sometimes make discs glitch.

I ran into this a few times. Repeat purchase to replace a set I "loaned" out.

Second set was lower quality or unplayable. Long story short there were
different companies producing the same DVD sets what you most like ran into
was the third purchase had a different point of origin.

Trying playing disk on your computer. My iMac usually could play a disk that
my DVD player would reject or stumble with.

It doesn’t help that my player is a Blu/DVD hybrid, and somewhat snobby. It will take a while to acknowledge a DVD is in the tray!
