Problems With Double-sided DVDs

A True Story. Feel free to laugh! 🙂

A few weeks ago, a few members of my family and I started watching a movie. As it was a long movie there were two things noticeable at once. (#1) one we couldn’t watch all in one sitting and (#2) it was on a double-sided DVD.

We ended up finishing the movie after a few evenings, but to our surprise, it was only about half as long as the back of the case said it would be! We realized, between laughs, that we had watched the second half first! By putting side “A” down in the player (that makes sense, right?) we had finished the movie before we’d started it. Oops.

As if that weren’t bad enough, a couple weeks later we were doing almost the exact same thing. Watching a movie that had a double-sided DVD.

After watching for a while, it got late so we stopped it about 15 minutes short of the end of the first side of the disc. Thinking about what the back of the case had said about this movie, we realized that it was nothing like what we had watched!

We’d done it again.

At least we hadn’t finished it first, though. 😛 We couldn’t believe it! And we had even put side “1” down, like the first one had been.

Oh well. I’d like to have a good talk with whoever invented double-sided DVDs.

Moral of the story: make sure you have the right side of the DVD down! 😀

Have a wonderful day!
