Default “Disc does not meet specifications” help

Hi everyone

Been getting this message with Blade runner 2049. Any ideas? I have a Samsung M9500. Software is up to date.

This doesn't help you in any way (sorry in advance) but when I saw the thread title I thought "I bet he's got a Samsung"

I’m guessing it involves BD Live.

I read about that when searching and did turn that to prohibit but didn’t seem to do anything.

However now it seems to have decided to play. What the hell?! lol. Temperamental? Lol

Check the disc to make sure it doesn't have any residue or contamination instead of being pristine. Glad it stared to play.

So it played then it froze lol. Returned it for a new disc and kept getting the “disc does not meet specifiactions”. Just returned the player and swapped for a Sony X-800. Only drawback now is if anything is DTS only I won’t get surround due to having a Sonos system. I just buy all the wrong equipment lol

The Oppo 203/205 works this way with the Sonos system. Other than the Samsung player no other options other than Oppo.

Your issues with Blade Runner:2049 disc are a good reminder to avoid Samsung disc players.

Same problem here - the "Scary Stories to Tell In the Dark" disc "does not meet the specifications." I also tried the disc in my Panasonic UNIVERSAL blu-ray player, which will play ANYTHING including old DVD-Rs that have deteriorated to where nothing else will even recognize them, with the same result (message this time was "wrong region code for this player" which should be impossible).

I took it back to Best Buy and they stuck it in a Sony player and it worked fine.

I see that lots of other people have been having this same problem. My faith in Samsung is shaken as they don't seem to be doing anything about it. What happened to this brand, which was so good just a year ago?

I had no issues playing the Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark blu-ray on my Panasonic blu-ray player.

I used to get that message all the time back before uhd, on various bluray players and every single time it was a dirty disc.

Never had this problem with my LG UBK90. Maybe look into that player.

2049 played fine on my Samsung. The only times I got that error was on a bad Deadpool 1 disc. Went through 4 discs until one played.
