The Importance of a Silk Scarf

I got this idea from someone on this forum, years ago, maybe 15+ years ago.

This morning, I popped my favorite 3-mile walk, Leslie's WATPs express/advanced walk, in my 12 year old iMac (desktop). And the dvd player didn't recognize it, even though I had done this dvd a couple of weeks ago.

I ran to the bottom drawer of my dresser, where I store socks and scarves and pulled out the first silk scarf I saw. I used it to rub around the backside of the dvd for a few moments, then popped that dvd right back in. And it played like a dream!

I have used this trick many times. I don't remember who first posted about it, but I am in your debt.

I've never heard of that. I don't have any silk scarves. I have some silk undershirts that might work.

Another thing to try.

When I have a dvd that doesn't play, I pull the plug and reboot the dvd player and that usually works.
