When the second one behaved exactly as the first one did (again, wouldn't even load, just "Disc Error") I decided it was time to consider an updated player (rather, a player that could be updated).
After posting I decided what the h**l, I had enough card points to get a 5100 so I ordered one. Sooner or later I'll probably need it anyway. My only reservation is that I sometimes like to play foreign DVDs (up to now not Blu-ray, but who knows in the future) so it might be better for me to order the region-free 5100 player.
But I digress. I don't recall what date my firmware is, I just recall checking several times that it was the last one issued. If April 2008 wasn't the last then I supposed it's POSSIBLE the later one introduced this issue, if not then I don't know what's going on. Regardless, I figure the DVD ought to play in ONE of them.
Thanks for posting your info.
