Thanks for the feedback.
I also concluded that it was pobaby the discs themselves that had become faulty over time, especially being in a locked car for 9 weeks in the sun and summer heat, humidity.
I haven't had a chance to try them on another player, but I know car players can be more sensitive to imperfections than home players, such as my Technics MASH 110+1 CD changer or other home players.
The TOP surface of the Verbatim (I happened to check it this morning when I picked it up of the floor of the car where it had fallen) seemed like it *might* have some sun spots. The bottom looked okay.
I'll do some more testing this weekend, with BOTH players and multiple discs, to get a good statistical sample size to be able to draw conclusions.
