Yesterday, while I was taking a game disc out of its jewel case, the inner ring on the disc cracked (which I found troubling as I have never had this happen). Trying to assess the damage, I peeled away any bits of plastic that would come off as a result of the initial crack and ended up with this:
Essentially, one of the layers of plastic in the middle of the disc is now missing a piece, with no additional loose pieces still attached (to my best of knowledge). How dangerous would it be to use this disc to play? I've already tried it once, throwing caution into the wind and everything worked all right. Still, this may have just been luck.
