    What happens if a disk is dusty, or dirty or scratched?
    All of a sudden, the machine playing it has to come up
    with a way to deal with a much greater data loss compared
    to DVD since the "pits" are much smaller. So, do the upcoming
    machines do that "read ahead, fill in the blanks" trick or do
    they simply jump over the garbled data or, do they lock up and
    say "cannot play this disk?" This will play a major role in the
    rental market, for obvious reasons.
