    Why would a nearly perfect DVD "lock up" while an old one with many
    fine scratches play perfectly?

    Therer are lots of reasons for a disk not to play beyond just physical
    damage you could see with your eyes...so there is no simple answer. Alot
    might depend in the title in question, certain titles have features that
    some players cannot handle correctly. It also depends heavily on the exact
    make and model of player being used as well...some have excellent error
    tracking, some have terrible error tracking, some struggle with dual layers,
    etc...
