When I buy DVDs, occasionally I get one that has the pertinent
information on a ring around the hub but has no label covering the DVD.
Any thoughts on why that's done? The latest one (bought used) has a
normal case and cover and the remains of the security stickers on top
and bottom; the DVD is meant to be played on one side, not both sides.
I'm afraid I wasn't clear about what I was asking. The commercial DVDs
I'm referring to are movies that come in regular movie DVD cases and are
only one-sided. (I do have some that are widescreen on one side and full
screen on the other, but these aren't the ones I'm asking about.)
Normally, they would have a label that covers the entire DVD on top--but
a few have no label, just the movie title and other relevant information
on a ring around the hub.
You can see an image of this kind of DVD for the movie The Big Easy on
The disc images are the far-right ones under the main image. The one on
the left is the top side and looks like some of the DVDs I have. They
appear to be genuine.
