Default A good chunk of my older Paramount dvds (1999-2007) have gone cloudy on the bottom

Going though my many dvds the other day to possibly sell them off I noticed that about 8 of my Paramount dvds (circa 1999-2007) have gone cloudy on the bottom or have white spots on them. Didn't look like mold, but it would not wipe off either (also don't think they are finger prints). Checked them out and they played fine. Didn't know if anyone else has noticed this.

Also want to point at that it is specifically Paramount discs I noticed this on. I've got over 400 dvds left and probably looked at the backs of about 100 of them (discs from Warners, Universal, Columbia/Sony, Anchor Bay, Blue Underground, 20th Century Fox, Disney, etc...). The non-Paramount ones looked fine.

Odd. I thought Paramount DVDs would have gone cloudy at the top ...

I've seen cloudy DVDs even on relatively new releases. It doesn't seem to affect play though.

I have that cloudy look on my DVD copy of Prince of Darkness & 1 of my anime DVDs & so far it hasn't affected them playing.

I bought the complete The Shield collection from Ebay and they were all like this. Had never seen anything like it. Mixed a little rubbing alcohol with some water , dabbed a microfiber cleaning cloth in it and they cleaned right up.

Don't know how playing was affected as i haven't watched em yet. Popped a bunch in and forwarded through a few, though. All seemed fine.

Ordinary washing up liquid has worked for me on discs like this.
