Well yes. That is one of the reasons, why I have copied all my cds on my computer and made a back up on an external hard drive.

A few of my parents' oldest CDs make rather ugly scratching noises nowadays due to several years of repeated plays, such as The Glenn Miller Collection and Sunshine On Leith by The Proclaimers.

Not exactly. There was a problem with some early Cd's, notably ones made by Philips/Polygram (Ironic, given that they co-invented the format!) due to the way they were made. Other manufacturers made the disc, and overlaid the aluminium (You've just mispronounced that in your head - There's a second "I" in it! grin) layer with a coating that overlapped the edge, thus preventing air, and more specifically oxygen, reaching the aluminium and corroding it.

Philips, however, made oversize discs, then cut them to the final diameter, which gives a flat edge that means all layers are part of the edge! this is the problem, and Philips acknowledged it in the late-80's. There was even a phone number for people to ring to exchange discs for new, better made ones.

I have a few of these discs, mainly Moody Blues and Barclay James Harvest ones, all from the era, and all made like that, and so far, the only one that shows any signs of an issue is "On the Threshold Of a Dream" which is badly discoloured, but so far has continued to play fine. But then I take care of my discs, they are kept in a temperate part of the house, out of direct sunlight, and I never use or leave them in the car, so maybe that's why.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compact_Disc_bronzing

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disc_rot

Ignore reference to pinholes in the reflective layer, these are a manufacturing defect present in new discs, the rot does not make these worse.

I've been aware of this problem for over 20 years, but never had an issue personally. In any case, I rip my Cd's for my Sony Walkman in lossless, so I can re-create any of them any time.

Repeated plays have no effect. it's a storage issue. Jewel cases are best (The original plastic case) and keeping CD's in cars, sunlight, etc, will make them fail quicker.

Patronising people. angry One of my Mum's work friends visited this morning for a cup of tea and a chat, and her patronising tone is beyond nauseating. This morning I received a voicemail, which I needed to re-listen to in order to write down some important job information, but it was difficult to find on my phone. When I said this, she looked at me and said "Oh yes, I know... it's difficult to find the received call list on a phone, isn't it?" through a revolting fake smile. When I finally found it (not in the received call list, the voicemail section is in a different part of my phone) and said so, she said, through another obvious, smug smile, "Awww... good for you, my dear. Well done indeed."

Unbelievable. Absolutely unbelievable. angry
