The One (1) time I watched Swordfish may, or may not, have been on the a30; I disremember at this time.

Google DVD2Blu
No issues here with either Swordfish or The Departed HD-DVDs. My Swordfish is a normal HD-DVD. The Departed is a combo flip disc and I think I recall testing this for you or someone else at one time.

Either you are just way unlucky with WB HDs or something else strange is going on? High heat or humidity? Storing Horizontal rather than vertical as the optical gods intended (that one is a joke, I don't think it matters). Or maybe you purchased yours early on and they have rotted? I think my Swordfish I bought used but can't remember the source, however I am almost certain that The Departed I purchased new. It's got some dust, dirt and marks on it, not sure why except back in the early days I kept the OBI strip in and getting in the case is a little tough without getting your greasy fingers on the disc.

Anyhow I didn't buy any players or discs until many months after the demise of HD and I collected over several years and still pick a few up here and there. however many of the used and previous rental discs I have I am sure were manufactured and originally put into operation in the heyday. I have yet to run into any of my discs that won't load or play. I do have a couple that have damage from being previously rented and have a few skips and whatnot. I am sure that there are at least a couple in there that may have worse issues as I have only had 1/4 to maybe 1/3 of my collection in a player and a good 50% of them or more are still sealed. So far only the two that you sent me won't play. Oh I take that back I did buy a couple not too long ago that had issues, but they would load and play, just not all the way through.

I've got a few worthless to send, too.
Hey that's a great idea though I can't recall if I tried them in the A35 yet? I know I got it out a while back, but that might have been to make sure my recently acquired Bubble plays, which it does in the BH200 and the A35.

Anyhow you can have those back if you want. I could only get one of them (I think Wonka?) to even load a couple times. The Dukes...is dead, which is no great loss.

Saw those at Wally World...

Still have 2 DVD players in service one 1 36" SDTV & 1 32" 720p...will use the extra HD DVDs for a shop/second man cave... too many in my den sometimes...
I still have an older B&W round tubed TV somewhere, and some 'diaporamas' (slides), and 16mm films, and 35mm B&W photographs, and VHS tape machine recorders, and a CRT color TV (Panasonic GAOO 31").
DVD players, that too, a whole bunch of them. And I got many r.a.d.i.o.s. (AM / FM / Analog ...).
I even got a Hitachi LCD rear projector 50" widescreen.

Future Shop sometimes gives you $5 or $10 towards the purchase of some selected Blu-rays (some 3D titles too). ...Any DVD, and they gave them to schools, libraries, ...

Ok, here's one I hope many members here will read. ...This post.

Anyone has the DVD Criterion of 'Amarcord' (1973) by Federico Fellini ?

If anyone has that disc, try to play it and see what happens. Then report right here. Try it in all your players, not just the UP5000. ...DVD, HD DVD, Blu-ray, Dual HD, Universal, PS3 players, DVD drives, Blu-ray drives, everything anything that can play DVDs.
