I initially thought the player was having a general disc read problem since the disc would start to load and then just stop. But another disc actually gave a region code error which clued me in to what was going on. After resetting the blu-ray region, all was well again.
I sent an email to BluRayChip.dk asking if they might have a solution or better workaround but have not received a reply (no surprise
). It looks like this will continue to be a problem. It means an added hassle every time I want to watch a Region B disc. Fortunately, I don't have a lot of them since most non-North American BDs seem to be region-free.
My symptoms are slightly different. When I try to play a B disc, I typically get the message about resuming from the last position when I load a disc, as if the player had seen the disc before (even though it hadn't), then it goes on to tell me that the disc region was incompatible.
