Warner Advanced Fuck Up Operations


WAMO (WEA Advanced Media Operations) is one of the very first DVD replicators over a decade ago spearheaded by Warner Bros. You probably own at least a couple discs manufactured by them.

They fucked up a good portion of discs early on, including my mint copy of Warner's Nightbreed. I just popped it into my Oppo and enjoyed the menu freezing constantly. Finally getting beyond that, more terrible skips during the film. Dammit.

Check your old Warner discs (usually in cardboard "snapper" cases) from time-to-time, on the inner ring of the data side you'll see "Manufactured by WAMO". They may not work anymore...
