Default problem w/ 360 HD DVD player

i noticed a month ago that it didn't play every SDVD and i didn't mind, thats not why i bought it

but now i see it doesn't play fearless (just bought it) or my copy of lucky # slevin anymore (owned it for a couple weeks) ,but my other titles work fine



is this a known issue or should i call Microsoft?

i really don't want to wait for a new player in the mail



oops.. didnt realize i was in thew wrong forum.. please move
sorry

What happens when you try to play the discs? Do you get an error code?

no, it just sits at reading until i eject it

i could go to sleep, wake up and it still says reading on the screen,but the disc isnt spinning

it does this with some dvd's and some HD DVD's , the same ones all the time.

for dvd's , i just put it in the console if its not working, but with HD DVD's it doesnt want to play im SOL

That happened to me on a few disks, but after looking on the back and cleaning smudges everything played just fine. Might want to check the disks minus the new fearless copy. I would call MS

i did call them, the lady never dealt with the HD DVD player before and had no clue, they offered to exchange it with a 2 week turnaround time... i said no way


im going to buy a new one from walmart and see how that goes and if it works better im goign to pull the old switcheroo and return the bad one


ps.. i got hollywoodland in from netflix and it would not play either, this is the second copy of that movie that wouldnt work for me as well

How long did you have the player before you had problems? How many hours of playback?

You need to trade it out, mine works fine on all HD titles (don't use the 360 for SDVDs).

not that long really, it was probably beat from the start , i started noticing problems after only watching a couple movies in it.


my new one works flawlessly, im going to wait until next week to try and return the other one to walmart to avoid some suspicion
