Default Playback problem with Dredd 3D; Opinions would be GREATLY apperciated!

I guess Dredd does not like Sony players,lol. Tried to play this disc in my S570 and my S590 and both said "Cannot read disc" and then it went to the menu and it had "Unknown?" at the menu screen for its title. The S590 kept trying to read the disc but it eventually failed. The S570 did not try as much as the S590 and it quickly failed. I checked the updates on both and both are up to date. I played another 3D disc on both players and both loaded and played fine. On the S590 however.... after the 3D movie was over ( IMAX Born To Be Wild), I noticed the player making a spinning humming sound. It has never done that before and it did not do it while Born To Be Wild was playing....only after it was over. Weird.

I have a sneaky suspicion that the fact that the Dredd disc has both the 3D and 2D versions AND the ultraviolet and digital copy all on one disc may be the problem here. Dredd was packaged only with one disc inside...this is correct, right?

I even tried to load it in my PS3 and it would try but it never recognized it and the disc and title never appeared on the PS3 start up/main menu.

Thought and suggestions would be extremely appreciated.

Bought Dredd Blu-ray: Cincinnati, OH
Bought at: Best Buy (Fields Ertel location)
Won't play on: Sony S570, Sony S590, Sony PS3 320GB
There are no players that I own that this disc will play on. All players up to date with latest firmware.

Try updating your firmware if you haven't already. If that doesn't work, you more than likely have a defective disc. I played my copy on my PS3 without any problems. I also watched it on my parents Toshiba (first Gen circa 2009) and there were no problems either.

Yeah...I did check for updates and I am all up to date. I will exchange it for another copy this week. I hope that is it. I really wanted to see this tonight after seeing Green Bay AND Denver get beat.

Just to be clear.....there is only one disc in the Dredd blu release correct?

Thank you for your response.

Yeah there is only one disc. I also believe that you may have gotten a defective disc. I have a Sony 3D blu ray player and it loaded up and played fine in mine. Really good movie with some nice 3D, hope your next disc works for you.

Thank you for confirming. Feeling a bit more confident now that I have a defective disc (thanks to kiltymchalis and your input). As I said, I will exchange it for a new one. Hopefully BB did not get a bad batch. Can't exchange it til Friday when I'm off again. DAMN! Got to wait til the end of the week (again) to watch this flick! Oh well....something to look forward to....yet again,lol


Thanks guys for your input and quick responses. Predicate it.

To help identify quality control problems in the industry, verifying a Bad Batch from the distribution sources of Dredd would require the following information:

1) Area Dredd (BD 3D + BD + Digital copy + Ultraviolet) was purchased?
2) Name of store?
3) Name and model of the player the disc won't play on?
4) Name and model of any player found the same disc does play on?


Hope the answers will help for future authoring problems.

Paul

Had no problem playing the 3D version in my S590. Perhaps there is just a bad batch of discs. I also purchased mine at Best Buy.

Purchased Dredd yesterday (Jan 12) at Best Buy and it won't read on my Panisonic 3D player (2011 model; firmware up to date), or my PS3. However, it will read on my 'ancient' Samsung P2550 in 2D.

Purchased my copy at Best Buy and it wasn't recognized by my PS3 with the lastest firmware. I even tried it on my desktop PC with an LG Blu-ray drive and PowerDVD12 with no luck (drive would spin but eventually would not recognize the disc).

I exchanged the disc for another copy and the same behaviors persisted.

I actually looked at the regular DVD sku and thought about it.

Not sure if I should sit tight with this copy hoping a solution comes up or if I should just get a refund.

Hmmmm....sounds like other members are having some playback problems. Weird that some play fine on their PS3 and some don't. Maybe a bad batch like another member had mentioned.

I'm having the same issue you have Mad Setter. Disc spins and tries to load (my S590 tried several times to load as did my PS3, but neither could not recognize the disc. Why didn't they just sell a stand alone 3D blu, 2D blu, and a stand alone dc instead of putting them all on one disc?!?! I seem to remember Lionsgate having issues with Crank 2 as well. Had to download a firmware to play that disc....even on the PS3 which is usually very dependable running new releases with no problems.


I'm going to exchange it at BB (where I bought mine as well), open it in store, and have them play in one of their 3D players just to make sure. May even have them play it in several players and the PS3. Can't do this though til Friday. My local BB is a bit of a trip and I go there when I'm off work to get the new releases.

I had no trouble playing on a Panasonic BDT310 with dual HDMI outputs. I should note I'm outputting audio to receiver and video straight to the display.

I tend to believe it must be a bad batch as well. You and I both bought the disc at BB and we both have the same player. I'm all up to date on my S590, S570, and my PS3 and neither of them could recognize the disc.

I wonder if its the authoring/security code on the disc that is causing this? Again....I REALLY don't know why Lionsgate could not just put each version of Dredd on their OWN SEPERATE DISCS instead of putting them all on one disc!! Save $$ I suppose.....maybe I will save MY $$ and get a refund,lol. Frustrating as hell.

Yep....I'm almost positive the same issue happened with Crank 2. Had to download a Lionsgate update to get that movie to play as well.

Weird how some work fine while others won't play at all. That has "bad batch" written all over it....USUALLY.

Both the 3D and 2D play fine on my PS3. It's an older (fat) 80 gig model. I bought my copy at Target with a BB price-match last week.

I noticed that ALL of the people who posted here so far that have had problems playing it ALL bought it at Best Buy.
