Default Error code 408bc504

Alright,

I'm venting here, I am really sick the 408bc504 error code, let's get real here with this issue. Are we looking at a software issue or are we looking at a defective disc issue?

Anyone's thoughts? I have an HD-X2.

Unhappy error code 408bc504

Yes I am getting the same error code. I first noticed it when I shelled out 100 bucks and bought BBC's Planet Earth 4 HD-DVD series. I am getting frustrated because I cannot get anyone to tell me if it is the disk or the player. If I am reading blogs and comments correctly it is happening with Blu-Ray disks as well. It has me a little skeptical.

I have the BBC Planet Earth HD-DVD and had the same 408bc504 Error, updating to 1.6 fixed it for the problematic section in disc 3 for me. I haven't finished the disc or played disc 2 or 4 so I can comment on those, but seems like they might have worked it out. Glad I found this thread. Update took maybe 10-15 minutes to install over DSL.

Specifically it dies Disc Three, Episode 2, Chapter 4. Anyone with a HD-A2 and the Planet Earth HD-DVD able to load that section? The very small chapter graphics seem to show a pitcher plant. But I just get a '408bc504' error and a reset of the layer. This is 1.6 firmware. Meh. Very frustrated right now.

I got this error with the HD DVD side of The Fountain (HD-A2, v1.6). I was able to get it to play after 3 or 4 tries.

I had it with Matrix Reloaded. Nothing else in the set had this problem. I brought it back to Best Buy and they replaced it. The replaced disc played just fine.

I had the same error last night with Planet Earth Disc 1. Took it out, the disc had a few smudge marks on it, I cleaned it very, very carefully, and then it played no problems at all. I think its just a dirty disc issue, at least it was for me.

I got error code 40864203 when trying to play Ultimate Matrix Reloaded. This happened on 2 sets from amazon so I just returned the whole box for a refund. I will be going to Best Buy though since I heard someone's Reloaded works from there.
