I bought a copy of Prepop off eBay (new, still in shrink wrap) and received it today. I opened it and put it in my DVD player, and my DVD player spit it back out saying "no disc."

My DVD player is a Sony DVP S560-D, and it's never given me any trouble on any DVD or DVD-R for that matter.

What could be the problem?

Yes, it's an authentic copy. After searching online for the past 20 minutes, I found out that my DVD player has a bunch of issues with some fuse that may or may not go bad after a couple of years. Guess I'm screwed.

David ~ I got mine and it played on my PS2, but it would not play on my car DVD player. I think it's just a bad recording. Try another player if you can.

Damn I need to lay off the drugs. Sorry it was Relentless not Prepop. Carry on....

Alright, I don't think it's my DVD player now - I played a VCD, a burned DVD, and a regular movie DVD, and everything was fine. I'm going to go to my neighbor's house and try his and rule out the disc being replicated poorly...

Ant Bug - I don't understand why that happens. I have an original (store bought) copy of Delta Sessions that will play in my PS2, but not my DVD player. My DVD player will play everything else (VCD's, CD-R's, DVD-R's), Just not Delta Sessions?

David,

My copy of Pre-pop has a few sections where it freezes and the picture distorts but nothing that severe. I've had bigger problems with WakeTrix and Retrospective. Those DVD's skip alot and have sections where I lose sound. I'm using a brand new Panasonic DVD player that plays everything else great so I know it's not the machine.

Well, problem solved (maybe). I emailed the guy I bought it from on eBay and he immediately agreed to replace the DVD. Great service. I've purchased from him before, and will continue to buy from him with this issue becoming so hassle free.

Tyler - weird about your DVDs not playing or skipping. Do you think that the producers put out cheap discs to save money, or is getting a "bad" dvd a normal occurance?

David,

Not sure but my gut is cheap discs/prodcution techniques. It seems to cut across Vendors as well. Not sure if Sidewayzs and the other vendors share a common production company but in general the quality is pretty poor compared to mainstream DVD's.
