Chances are that we play a brand new DVD smoothly for the first time, and the next time when we play it, it fails to work normally. How upset to find a favorite DVD fails to work! Nobody is willing to see that. Fortunately, we can avoid the frustrating situation from the very beginning. And the following are some tips on how to protect DVD that you have to pay attention to.
