    Kingdom of Heaven DVD arrived in the post today. Disc one went straight into my Toshiba SD-240E but player fails to load saying disc is 'bad'. First time I've had this problem.

    Disc 2 plays fine in the Tosh and on my Samsung HD750 both discs play fine.

    Any clues anyone?

    Thanks

    Sid

    Yep!

    The hole in the middle of the disc is too rough! I tried tonight for the best part of an hour to get to to play, then I had a look at the disc, the plastic around the hole had not been cleaned up after it had been pressed.

    So I got a small knife and dragged the edge of the blade very slightly around the egde, and wiped off the bits of plastic, it now works fine!

    Good luck!

    Ps, do you think that the picture is a bit to
    dark? :hiya:

    Thanks Rob :smashin:

    That worked a treat. Can't say my disc centre looked too unfinished but a little attention with a sharp knife and the DVD was playing just fine.

    I would concur though, that at first glance, it does appear to be quite dark. I'm viewing it on a Sagem HD-D45 rear projection DLP set and even with the brightness increased it was very noticable. It's as though they have filmed the scenes very early in the morning / late evening. A lot of the scenes / characters are in shadow. Hopefully won't spoil my enjoyment of the film too much when I sit down to watch it in full.

    Same problem on Denon 3910 - disc struggled to load and when it eventually did picture kept freezing. Trying again with a new copy, if this doesn't work will "massage the hole" !

    hi,

    i had the same problem on my denon 2910, i was sent a replacement disc and it still didn't work, so i had a look at the centre hole looked clean but shaved some plastic off anyway.....plays perfectly, who would of guessed that a stone age method would work with technology thanks rob sheep. :)

    Pitty bout film though.
