Found a Blu-ray disc your shiny new player refuses to recognise? Or having trouble with some HD DVD titles and your hardware?

Use this thread to tell others which discs won't play on which machines, both Blu-ray and HD.

Top man Andrew, on the ball AND it's Saturday! Clare, overtime claim on it's way. He he.

Anyway, as I started this can of worms, here goes with my findings as of 8/12/2007.

Just for your information, my player report is now as follows:

SONY BDP-S301 so far plays everything I have tried so far without problems (1 month old player)

SONY BDP-S1 will not play "Cars" or "Die Hard 4". (6 months old)

LG BH-100 will not play "Cars", "Die Hard 4", "Fantastic Four/Silver Surfer" OR "28 Weeks Later". (3 months old)

PS3 plays everything I have tried so far.

Oldschool.

Legends of Jazz (blu-ray) Incorrectly authored batch means that some copies may not play on EU PS3's. LRSMedia will exchange offending disc.

A friends PS3 will play my copy of "Die Hard 4" on a Region A Blu-Ray disc, (his player is a UK Region B) but will NOT play his region 2 "Die Hard 4" DVD!, and his SONY BDP-S301 will NOT play a region-free disc. EH!!

So we swapped.

Is it true that William Hill will soon offer odds on what discs play on what players? Apparently LG bets are exempt because we already know THAT result.

Notes: 1) Contact the publisher for an exchange. 2) The original batch of these discs were authored incorrectly and will not work on EU PS3s. Contact the publisher (LRS media) for an exchange. 3) This has been marked as region-locked in several places, but appears to be region-free. 4) The movie disc is region-free, but the extras discs is region-locked. 5) The first two movies are region-free, but the third is region-locked.

Hope this helps,

if this info has been of use to you please reply to keep the post "live" for other Blu-Ray users, thanks,

Gerry.

Hi

I have built a media pc as I wait to see if any format wins.

I use a Pioneer BD rom and an xbox 360 hd dvd drive and I am pleased to say I have had no Issues playing anything. Both Blu ray and Hd dvd look great on my Hitachi pd 9700, and I would say Hd is probably slightly better (to my eyes).

My friend has a samsung Blu ray and has had trouble playing james bond and De JA vu, he thought it was the discs but when we put them in mine they worked ok, Also our local Blockbuster has had a lot of people coming back with Blu ray discs that will not play.

Maybe we've been lucky, but all 20 of our BDs play on our Samsung BD-P1400. Our collection is from the following studios/labels....

20th Century Fox, MGM/Columbia, Touchstone, Disney, Warner Bothers, Columbia Records, Disney Pixar, Mercury Records, Columbia Tristar, DVD International, New Line Cinema and Eagle Vision.

Two discs, Cars and The Polar Express are from the US, but are not regionally coded.

Recently, we purchased the BD of Rush Hour 3 (double disc UK version). There is an optional enhanced visual commentary by the directors. This amounts to a picture in picture commentary. We have been lead to believe that this type of feature was reserved for BD profile 1.1 and HD-DVD only. We'll the BD-P1400 is only profile 1.0 and this feature works faultlessly! We rarely watch films with the directors commentary, but the picture in picture option, for us anyway is much more useful! Well done New Line Cinema!

Another well done New Line Cinema for the breathtaking DTS-HD 7.1 audio! Being brought up on DD/DTS 5.1 (both excellent), we were sceptical about supposedly better audio formats! Now we've sampled them in their full glory, it's a hearty recommendation from us!

Does this mean that for PIP, profile 1.1 isn't necessary after all? All the hype and all existing BD players will play the feature!?

Sorry Tiago,

Trying to get someone to actually refund or exchange anything to do with a faulty Blu-ray item is an uphill struggle. Looks like you have a new table mat!

Well, here we are now almost in February and I still do not have my LG player functional. Have been waiting 2 weeks again for some further response from LG but nothing as yet.

So we can now add The Day After Tomorrow as a non playing disc in my LG. (No sound/continually dropping out)

I have now OWNED my LG Blu-ray player 6 months but only had it in my possession 4 weeks, not bad eh!

Have read about lots of problems with the bd-p1400 not playing a host of uk blu-rays, let alone others - but apparently all fixed with a firmware update. I have got mine with the latest firmware and have had no problems as yet...

With regard to 1.0/1.1, is it not possible to upgrade a player from 1.0 to 1.1 via a firmware upgrade? This player has got a built in ethernet, or you can download/burn to disc etc... Read something last night that suggested to be 1.1 the player would need flash memory which would obviously rule this theory out - just wondering if someone could clarify?

It's taken 35 Blu-rays (incl four US Blu-rays) and we have finally found one that won't play on the Samsung BD-P1400!

Ratatouille (Disney Pixar) was delivered this morning. It's not officially released until Monday, so the positive turned negative when the player just keeps reading the disc, but won't play.

We only have firmware 1.1 - Samsung advice is not to download updates unless you are having problems or there was a specific extra feature being offered (e.g. F/W 1.1 adding DTS-HD Master Audio).

Firmware update 1.5 came after the US release of Ratatouille, so it maybe OK for the UK release too?

We will add F/W 1.5 and see what happens. We'll let you know or what Samsung / Disney have to say!

On the issue over the BD-P1400, like all existing Profile 1.0 players (except PS3) it's not possible to upgrade the player to Profile 1.1 as there is not physical 256MB of internal *cache type* memory (or something like that). The PS3 does have that type of memory and as such can be upgraded to Profile 1.1 and 2.0 eventually. However the PS3 does lack 5.1 analogue phono outputs, so unless you have an HDMI equipped amplifier/receiver, you can't enjoy HD audio or 5.1 PCM audio for that matter!

We'll the good news is that after loading firmware update 1.5 for the Samsung BD-P1400, Ratatouille (Disney Pixar) now plays. There is a warning at the beginning of the disc that states that it could take two to three minutes for the disc to load, but in the event, it wasn't anywhere near as long as that!

The downside is that after a firmware update, all the settings in the player have gone back to the factory defaults! That means digital outputs converted to PCM. Not a problem for Ratatouille as Disney encoded an excellent PCM 5.1 EX soundtrack!

That's taken care of the family for 111 minutes whilst I write this amongst other things!

And again there you have it, the all well-known problems with blu-ray. I'm extremely happy I bought the Tosh EP35 HD DVD player with brilliant specs and performance for a very low price and oh yeah, it plays all my HD DVD's (over 30 at the moment) with not a single problem.

Haven't had a single problem playing any Blu-Ray discs on my PS3 either so it's not problems with Blu-Ray, just certain manufacturers players and new BD discs. In my experience, these inevitably they get fixed with firmware upgrades so it's not really an issue (NB - this isn't true for all players though as someone has pointed out to me later on. Moral of the story, do your research before buying a player to ensure it's not having problems with discs and, if it has, whether these have been fixed with a firmware patch). It's a lot better situation than for the poor people who bought the first DVD players...

I had a problem with Jarhead on HDDVD last night; kept struggling to load. It was a rented copy so may just have been damaged, but I couldn't see and scratches/dirt on the disc.

Well I keep looking at hd and have been waiting for the battle over format to be resolved ,but it seems like my wait even though the format wars are over will still go on until the format itself is sorted..... if what I read on here is true.

Just like the Beta/VHS wars of the 80,s was won by the inferior system is this the case now? and if this is the case would it not be funny if Sony's better system failed then but its inferior one won now.

Can someone please re-assure me the right guy won.
