    Was enjoying ThE Negotiator tonight untill chapter 29 when it just froze. I thought it was a brief pause, but I can't get it to play. Tried skipping a chapter too, but no luck. Somethings jutters forwards, and looks like theresa tear accross the screen.

    There seems to be only 2 VERY faint scratches on the disc, could that really be doing the damage?

    Guttered, was well enjoying the film too.

    the light scratches would do it I'm afraid.
    Is it ex-rental ? If so take back for refund.

    Bought it off the forums. Watched it once, fancied it again. That's a damn shame, one of my favourite films. :(

    theres some sort of dvd/cd repair kit out there which supposedly fixes light scratches. Its a bit extreme given that you could probably buy a new copy, but I suppose it could help ?? can't remember where I saw it though (try a search on google).

    I got one of those a while back - can't say I was overly impressed.

    Unless of course my disk was damaged beyond repair, BUT they did only appear to be light scratches - haven't tried it since.

    If you want to borrow it to try anyway, (just cover postage), PM me - you're welcome to try it.
