I just had a reply from retailer regarding a problem i was having with u-571 hd dvd..Guess i will use them again Hi Martin, I am not sure if a new disc will work or not. I guess it is worth a try ) There has been some problems with Toshiba HD DVD players (and also X-box). For instance Children of Men couldn't play on those two either. But maybe this is just a bad HD DVD, so we will send you a new disc. When you receive it please let me know if it works or not. ) Mette, Team AxelMusic Got this reply not only the same day but within hours !!
