There's a bad batch of the Hunger Games on bluray going around. Most of the bad disks come from Best Buy, but not all of them (mine came from Amazon). The problem is that the movie plays fine for about an hour, and at the countdown to the beginning of the games (when they're all standing on the pedestals), it pauses, then unpauses, then stops randomly. Some people report that disabling BD Live will fix it, but it didn't for me. I'm getting a replacement from Amazon, and will report back if it's better with a new copy.


thxs for the heads up. I just picked up a copy yesterday from Best Buy and was going to watch on Monday, but I check it out tonight.

I know this is an older movie and chances are slim of anyone having interest in picking it up now, but Zack & Miri Make A Porno has issues on PS3, and maybe other blu-ray players. You need to go into the PS3 and have the option to automatically enable BD Live turned off. Then when you start the blu-ray and it asks if you want to enable BD Live, select no. Otherwise the blu-ray will freeze on the first loading screen. I thought I had a defective disc that wouldn't load, but a Google search brought me to a site that showed other people having problems with the same movie and how to get around it.

I just bought Taken shipped and sold by amazon.com http://www.amazon.co...TF8&me=&seller= and it won't even show up at all on my PS3 Slim 320GB. My PS3 reads other Blu-ray movies, DVD's, and PS3 games so I don't think it is the laser. I have already got one replacement from amazon.com and today they told me to send back the disc and they would issue a refund. Has anyone else had any issues with it not showing up at all in the PS3 acting like it wants to eject disc on its own but doesn't?

Amazing Nature 3D. Picked it up for $9 . . . and it's broken.

You can watch the individual chapters, but not the intro. Top menu is mostly broken and even the sections that do work sometimes stop and you have to eject and reload the disc.

I don't remember, I've had it for a few years. If I had to guess, I think it was Target.

My PS3 is a slim 120GB btw.

So I had an interesting one happen to me yesterday.

I picked up the Predator 2 pack, specifically the "Own the moment" white packaging. Anyway, inside was the Predator Ultimate Hunter Edition. When I brought it home it refused to load in my PS3. I would insert it and nothing would happen except an extended sound of the drive trying to read the disc. This then led to a sound of the drive partially ejecting the disc but ultimately having it stay inside. (worried me for a second, let me tell you)

Anyway, when I exchanged it at Target the other one I opened didn't have the Predator Ultimate Hunter Edition but rather the original pressing of Predator. This one loaded just fine so I have no idea if there's a larger issue with the Ultimate Hunter Edition but I was pleased to find that I ended up with the preferable transfer of Predator.

I just got from Best Buy and it plays fine in my PS3's so amazon.com must have a bad press of it. I did call amazon.com to tell them my Best Buy disc worked fine so they can check their copies before selling anymore.

Here's an interesting one and I don't know for sure what players it affects other than the PS3 I was using:

The Getaway (1972 with Steve McQueen) - the menus are in the wrong language. I think it's Chinese but I can't say for sure. Really weird.

I just bought Green Zone from Best Buy with Summer of Action promo cash.

I pop it in and throughout the entire movie the video freezes for five seconds or less, though the sound keeps going. It does this maybe thirty times.

Anyone else have this problem?

I do the disc looks new and rewinding back to try that part again and works fine. I hate how this does it and stopped watching. I played in the new super slim ps3.

Anyone have a PS3 and issues playing Disney blu rays? When I bought Peter Pan last month it got about a quarter way through the movie and decided it didn't want to play, same thing happened when I was watching Up last night. My firmware is up to date. I did lots of messing around with settings, turned the console on and off, cleared out the blu ray cache, etc. Finally I gave up and just threw the DVD on and there was no problem. Frustrating.

I have Up on blu-ray and I'll try it out later tonight in my PS3. Let you know if anything happens.

Just for reference, I have: Up 4 disc blu-ray combo (not the newer 3D blu-ray combo) and the Slim (not super slim) PS3.

I have a slim and haven't had any trouble with Up, Brave, Wreck it Ralph, or any others that i can think of. Sorry I don't have any real advice for you though

It's your PS3, there might be something wrong with your bluray laser. I've watched almost every Disney bluray on my PS3 without any issue.

Try making sure you are not connected to the internet. I know when I use my ps3 it always asks me about connecting to the internet before playing a blray. If you are not saying no, try selecting no or go into your settings and change it there. I have heard of issues before when it is connected to the internet.

Its not the laser. Other movies, other Disney movies even (watched Wreck It Ralph a couple weeks ago), have worked. Just those two titles so far that haven't.

Thanks I tried that as well. It seemed to work for a few minutes then it just stopped again. Not a huge deal but definitely annoying.

I just watched treasure planet and half way through the movie the image is skipping as if the disc was scratched. It lasts 6 or so seconds and then works flawlessly. I checked and it's not scratched. I have no clue what to do. Do I return it to best buy or contact Disney?

I would exchange it with Best Buy and if the second copy does it, contact Disney.

One copy may be a disc that failed in the creation process, two may be indicative of a bad batch.

You should also check Blu-Ray.com and some of the other sites like it to see if there's complaints about it from users there.

I watched UP the whole way through with no problems at all. Do you have another blu-ray player? See if it plays smoothly on another one. As some have said, it could be a problem with your PS3.

Never...  but I don't have a PS4 and I'm not sure how many PS4 users are in this thread...  You might want to check the PS4 subforum and/or Sony's official PlayStation forum.

I've also seen quite a few reports of the X-men First Class blu skipping / not even playing on many peoples devices (most of amazons 1-star ratings are people ranting at such), including PS3's. Haven't picked up a copy because of this (only blu-ray player I have is the ps3), but I also suggest putting that title in the OP.


I never had problems playing X-men First Class on my PS3 but PS4, I get a red screen telling me to update. PS4 has latest update and I'm still scratching my head.
