They have that FBI, CIA, KGB, Gestapo warning on them, so I'm guessing yes.

Then there should be one of those "Mission Impossible" warnings, "This DVD-R will self destruct in 60 weeks".

I have two Warner movies (one Blu-ray, one dvd) that are almost a year old that I haven't even watched yet. I'll watch them before the 60 week self-destruction begins.
I'm going to count how many Warner movies I actually have.

FYI: I've had numerous titles of WB's on demand discs for eight years, and have not had any problems with them. I just played their Robert Benchley short films release, and my copy still plays flawlessly.

Add the 1999 DVD of SALEM'S LOT (1979) to that list of Warner Home Video discs that go kablooey over time. I used to watch it every Halloween, but last year the thing froze up and stopped playing for good.

Has anyone determined the cut-off date of release for these defective dvds? Are more recent releases, say the last ten years or so, also having this self destruct problem?

I just played a Warner Bros. Archive dvd for the first time, but I've had it for about a year. I froze at about 11 minutes. I tested it on my pc, and it froze again.

Here are links to other forums discussing Warner Bros. dvd failures.

The one that comes with all four Christopher Reeve movies plus Superman Returns and is about 14 discs. I think it's called the Ultimate Collection or something like that...
