Default The Chronicles of Riddick PS3 Playback Issue

I had just bought this movie and around the 15 minutes mark with the Uncut version it freezes and skips ahead 5-10 minutes all the time. There's no preventing it. I have a 40GB system with the most recent update. Is anyone else having problems with this disc on their systems? Should I upgrade to the 160GB or just get a really good stand-alone player to try to fix this problem, because there's no way for me to watch this film on my system without the freezing. Pitch Black was no problem, how irritating.

Thanks for any input.

Exchanging is not an option for me as I no longer have the receipt for it, how stupid of me, but when I can I'll most definitely have to buy it again. The distributor's really should make sure before the product goes out whether or not any discs are defective.

where did you but it from and did you use a credit/debit card??? most places can look up your reciept from the credit/debit card number and can exchange that way.

I did not have a single issue with mine on my PS3. However, why can you not exchange it? If you paid using a credit card, you do not need a receipt. If not, go to a local Best Buy, and tell them you bought it from them, paid in cash, and need to do a no receipt exchange, and since it is under $50, there should not be an issue, especially since you just want the same item.

Most places will at least grudgingly let you exchange it with out a receipt even if you paid cash. I would imagine this is doubly true in a bad economic times with everyone fighting for a shrinking customer pool. Give it a shot, worst thing they can do is say no right?

normally stores wouldn't require a receipt for an exchange for the same title.

I just found that I have a bad copy. Sucks. At exactly 14:00 it studders and jumps a few times to 19:30. I got the 2 pack from Amazon but would really prefer not to have to ship it back to them. I wonder if they make you. Or mayber I could just be shady and try and get it replaced at Target or Best Buy. Is there anyway to know what stores have the unaffected copies ?
