Default Dawn of Dead Playback issue on PS3

I rented Dawn of the Dead (the original) from BLockbuster online and I popped it in and it wouldn't read it..gave some sort of error. I received that same error for Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow disc too.

Is there a Bluray incompatability list for PS3 somewhere on this forum or anywhere else online?

I own Dawn of the Dead and I have no problem playing it on my PS3. Sounds like a bad disc or a bad PS3.

Same, must be an issue with the disc.

It's a rental, go figure. I wish people wouldn't make threads about rental disks...getting a bad disk is bound to happen.

Default Dawn of Dead

The rental had virtually no scratches... Originally it went to the menu screen but after that it stalled when i clicked on "Play Movie". I ejected the disc and put it back in and got a black screen and gave some sort of error...every time thereafter.

But yes, both dawn of the dead and sky captain were rentals.

really though with the scratch coating this shouldnt happen, especially if the disc is flawless
theres videos on youtube of steelwool tests sharpie tests etc and they still work

You're the first (and probably the only) person to report problems with this disc on the PS3. Congratulations on your dubious milestone.

Considering the movie is only 2 weeks old I can't see what being a rental has anything to do with this one... I would even bet there were no visible scratches on the disc, so that clearly is not as issue...
