Hi all, not sure of the single best place to post this, since I'm not sure if this is a 1.3 bug, or just a problem disc.
I am having an issue with my 'Death Sentence' German Import HD DVD (Concorde), with this error code:
"This disk can not be played. Error code: 0x00000101"
Sometimes, I don't even get the error code; sometimes the player just freezes while loading the disc.
My 5K just arrived this week. Without really thinking about testing, I did the firmware upgrade to 1.3 over the net right off the bat, but I suspect that the Death Sentence HD DVD would probably still not have loaded on old firmware, as I've seen in a few other forums that imports don't always work 100% smoothly.
So I don't know if this is truly a new issue as a result of 1.3, or if this has always been a problem disc for the 5K. I do know that it played without a hitch on my Toshiba HD-A1. Also it was one of the few HD's that I know of with 5.1 DTS-HD High Resolution. (English track is HR, German track is MA).
I know this wasn't necessarily a largely popular import title, but if anyone has one and can also confirm it doesn't load for them, that would be a big help. Concorde in Germany also released a Blu-ray version with the exact same specs, which is also region free, so if anyone has had success getting that title to play in the 5K, then I can be content in just ordering the BD import version.
