so i bought the push process dvd yesterday. got home and popped it in the dvd player. i got an error saying "bad disc." went to the bedroom and popped it in another dvd player. got the error again. went to another room and popped it in the playstation 2 and played just fine. popped it in the (sony) laptop and played just fine. <BR> <BR>does the dvd only play in sony dvd players? i know, stupid question. i wasn't really serious, but is it in a format that only certain dvd players can read? i know it was shot in hd, but it's encoded in mpeg-2 format, right? <BR> <BR>and no, i haven't watched it yet. i want to watch it in my living room w/ the bigger tv and surround sound. <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/proud.gif" border=0>

I haven't have any problems with it playing anywhere and my copy has been around the block.

I don't have it, but my friends copy has some issues

interesting that it worked in a PS2 and had problems in a newer standalone. My experience with burning different DVD formats is that PS2s are pretty sh**** as far as playback compatibility. Were the players you were having trouble with +/-R(W) compatible? Some older players don't playback +R discs, but this really shouldn't be an issue coming from a master copy/distributor.

my dvd players have played anything and everything short of a slice of tomato.

hmm sounds like a problem with the discs at the distributor level.no bueno.

Works in my Packard bell laptop. I'll try in some other players later.

Works in my 360 and my offbrand DVD player at home. Also works in my Toshiba laptop. Sounds like your disc to me...

IBM laptop computer. Worked fine.

Joe, I have the same issue. It works on my Mac, but not on my JVC DVD player. Does anyone have the contact info to the distributor?

Are these burned discs or pressed? Burned discs have always had issues with compatibility.

Worked in my HK.

some of these movies do not match up with the codec in the older DVD players. I can not play my transgression in my living room....but when I take it down stairs and play it in my theater room....no worries. newer player works...older does not!
