Default Transformers bonus disc won't play in my HD-A2

Hey guys, long story short I picked up Transformers, the feature disc plays fine on my HD-A2 no problems, but I pop in the Extras disc and it just sits there on the loading screen for the player (Not the disc like on the Feature disc) for like two minutes then a message pops up saying "This disc is not DVD format" The underside of the disc has no visible imperfections either. I tried playing it at 2.0 firmware and then 2.5, same results. Since I've only seen people with the 360 add-on have any problems with this disc, I'm assuming this is a case of a bad disc? If it is that simple enough except I doubt I'll be able to get a replacement from CC this week with the B1G1 sale and all. Damn it all I really wanted to watch those docs. Any other suggestions?

Even though it's a brand new copy, try cleaning the disc and see if that will help. I clean all my movies before I play them, just in case.Good luck.

Default Check AVS

Try going over to AVS there is a thread with people who have problems with the Transformers locking up etc; However it is mostly people with XBOX HD Drivers

Well I just swapped it out for a new disc, which we tested in the store, and it also works at home. So thankfully I just had a dud. Tried to pick up Enter the Dragon and Sky Captain while I was there, but they said they weren't doing the B1G1 anymore, and they had the screen at the register like turned away so I couldn't see it. Oh well, I did get 4 for the price of two, can't complain. Maybe they will lower their prices by $5 after seeing the willingness to buy at non ludicrous prices.

Default Transformers bonus disk playback problems

We too had a problem loading the disk, it just froze the player.
I ejected it and powered down the A2, rebooted it and inserted disk one. It worked OK (it did do a web update) I put in disk 2 and the disk plays fine now no problem.
It was unnerving that first time but it works fine now.
Maybe the web enabled updates solved the problem?
