    It's not out of the realm of possibility for your Blu-Ray disk to work, with the long ago problem of some Great Dane Records disks oxidizing badly to the point of becoming unplayable, but it's highly unlikely that modern manufactured disks from a "legit" pressing plant would suddenly go bad as a result of the disk itself having defects.
    I would try playing your disks in a different Blu-Ray player that plays other Blu-Ray disks okay before damning the disk first.
    Mine still plays just fine.

    I've heard there may be a "BR rot" issue with some of these DSOTM Immersion BRs.

    I've had this since 2011 but couldn't play the BR until yesterday when I bought a BR burner. VLC had a bit of trouble playing it and as it doesn't play the menu I'm currently in the progress of backing it up to my PC, 2 hours and 15 minutes for 34GBs, keeping my fingers crossed it will finish the process without errors.

    I cancelled the initial backup process with CyberLinkPowerBackup, the software that came with my burner, as I wasn't happy with how the program handled it. Redid it with MakeMKV and it came out as 8 mkv files which play without problems in VLC. Great little program, it did the job much faster as well, I'd recommend those having problems to try out MakeMKV.

    You might wanna backup the entire disc with the menus and all for a possible backup to another BD. MakeMKV will also do that.

    Finally!!

    Today I received an answer after mailing to mail@aecreate.com (mailadress read on the quadraphonicquad forums, many thanks!) that my Dark Side Immersion Blu-ray stopped working over a year ago!
    I also send a picture of the data side of the disc with the serial number 294349 DB44459-01 Optimal Media Production L0/L1.


    “Hi Frans,

    Thanks for the email and apologies you are having issues with the Blu-ray.

    The problem is being investigated and will probably result in new replacement single discs being sent out in the near future.

    Best regards,
    Andy”


    And another mail, a few hours later!

    “Hi there,

    If you're enquiry is regarding issues the Blu-ray of The Dark Side of the Moon as part of the IMMERSION box set, we are investigating ways to resolve these recently 'failed' discs and a replacement process.

    Best,
    Andy”

    The problem is who owns the rights to the material to press more discs. There's no warranty expressed or implied as to the long term usefulness of the media. A perfectly working disc shouldn't fail for no reason, but I doubt we'll see replacements.

    I take it you don't have a failed disc then, I do, two of them. One time they played, the next time they didn't, simple as that. I'm hopeful that those of us with failed discs will get replacements given that there are so many of us.
