Default Blue ray disk skipping without scratches

Ok, i got dark knight on blue ray, and half way through the movie it started skipping repeatedly. I took out the disk and it loops filmy in light. None of my other disks do this. I am using a Samsung player.

what do you mean filmy?

blu-rays have a special coating on the disc for scratch protection.

i've heard that sometimes dvd/cd's can get tiny scratches that are not noticable.. but still enough to cause skipping.

When they manufacture millions of discs some are bound to be flawed new out of the case. I would return it to where you bought it and exchange it for another copy.

I've found that Blu-Ray discs, although scratch-proof are VERY vulnerable to fingerprints. Clean it with a micro-fiber cloth and see if the skipping stops. If not, then like someone previously mentioned, return it to amazon.

Half way through the movie? Double layer BD dipper??? Can that be??? Is it a 50GB BDisk?[Edit: Yes it is]
Could be the second layer. Return it!

that has nothing to do with whether your movie skips or not. that's perfectly normal. all my blu-rays have that look to it. i think it's just the coating.

Look at how he spells it: "Blue ray disk"
While the proper spelling is "Blu-ray Disc" how did the OP get it so wrong? Come on you're going to a site called blu-ray.com does it not five you any clues on how it should be spelt. Plus the fact that the top of the case says "Blu-ray Disc"
You can't spell film without ILM - Industrial Light & Magic

Default Severe skipping problems

I have yet to have a Netflix blue ray that dosn't skip. Is this a common problem? They skip so badly that it makes movies unwatchable. It plays DVD'd prefectly and blu-rays we buy . We have a Samsung player. We get a lot from Netflix. Could it just be that they are getting bad disks? The disks aren't scratched or smudged at all. Were trying to watch Gi Joe right now and it gets 40 mins in and becomes unwatchable. Could it be when it switches to the second layer? Thanks.

I've only had one blu ray disc from Netflix that was bad (Ironman).
You might check and make sure you have the latest firmware for your player also. Firmware can definitely cause problems with newer discs.
Samsung HL61A750 (LED DLP), Onkyo TX-SR805,
Oppo BDP-83 Blu ray, Polk Audio LSi9,
Polk Audio LSiC, Sony SS-MB100H,

Backround sounds and music only.
No fingerprints or scratches?!

You need to take it out of 5.1 mode and tell it you're running stereo. That's your problem

I've had only one Blu skip on me and it was Enemy at The Gates during the beginning sequence with the train. I checked the disc and it looked perfect with no scratches or fingerprints.

Make sure your Samsung has the latest firmware installed. I recall The Dark Knight being one of the titles that caused people headaches until they upgraded to the latest firmware. I have a Samsung BD-P1590 and it plays The Dark Knight flawlessly.

Watchmen and Ratatouille? That's another story.

Have you tried to clean the disc? Does it always stop at the same place? Have you tried to start the disc say 1/4 way in see if it stops at the same place? Have you had a look with a monocole? Try using Nero to check the disc
