Default Warner disc rot?

So after having my stash in storage for two years, I've been slowly rewatching everything since I retook possession a year ago. And along the way, I've come upon discs that used to play fine back in '09~ but now either hit me with errors a few minutes in or wont even begin to load at all. So I started making a list and, lo and behold, aside from a Magnolia disc - they're all Warner!

I am running latest firmware on both an A1 and an XA2 and my problem discs don't care which player I'm trying.

This is just my problem list so far;

GoodFellas: freezes every 15mins~ (better with analog audio…)
Enron: unable to get more than 30 mins into the movie, even with chapter skipping
Deliverance: Wont load
Unforgiven: Wont load
Grand Prix: freezes 20 mins in
Training Day: freezes within a minute

I still have most of my collection to go through so I've no doubt there'll be more.

What's going on? :blackeye3:

Part of that could be the player. I burned all my WB movies onto a couple hard drives as iso files just in case (and to be able to run them off my PC using TMT5 and eliminate hardware altogether) and of the 160 discs or so I only had to replace about 6 of them. A few of those would play in the BH200 (but not the XA2) but since they didn't read well in the xbox player connected to the PC, I replaced them anyway just to make a backup copy.
