Angry 'Speed' BD - Faulty

My copy of 'Speed' BR refuses to play in the Sammy player. I have the latest firmware installed. Based on people's reports on AVS Forum & HTF, I'm guessing Fox either had a bad initial pressing or it's just that the Sammy is the culprit.

Try messin around with the Parental settings.

I havn't got my copy yet, but most playback problems I've encountered have to do with the dumb Parental set.

Also check the inner part of the spindle hole for the alpha-numeric code applied to all optical media. Some are speculating that Fox packaged blanks, as this code is missing.

I also had some trouble with the Speed disc. I ordered it from Amazon and it would not played and the disc appeared to be scratched. I returned it and bought one from Best Buy and the disc was fine. The load time however was unbearable.

It looks like some of the rumors about the Samsung having playback issues with future discs are ending up being true.

My 2nd disc, from a different vendor, does not play either. Tried it 3 times. The disc spins for a while, then the Sammy just spits it out w/a 'This disc is not playable' kind of message. Don't recall the exact message.

Mine worked fine in the ps3, so the disc is fine. I'm guessing the BD-J on this disc isn't completely compatible with all players yet. But like I said it works fine on ps3!

Default SPEED A MIXED BAG on SAMSUNG BDP1000

I'd get the same error message; that it would not play. After reinserting it about 5 times it finally got to the menus. But alas only to find out that half way into the movie the disc froze - followed by a gazillion pixel breakups.

Sooooooo, I bought another one (SPEED) and amazingly, it plays fine. Could be a just a badly pressed batch of discs, or worse, software or hardware problem. I'll wait on FOX and see what they say. All the other Fox Titles, however, play fine.

I don't think the issue is with the Samsung per se. It obviously does something in a different way than other BD players. Still it is evidently opertaing within the parameters set out by the BDA. Fox has accepted responsibility for the problem with Speed and will be replacing discs at their expense for the people affected.

BTW: Kudos to Fox for taking the high ground, admitting their error and offering a solution to the people affected. Had this been another prominent Blu-ray studio, I think we can be pretty certain that they would have found a way to shift the blame to someone else.
