Harry Potter: Goblet of Fire won't read in PS3!? - Page 2

post #31 of 72
Did Firmware 2.10 fix this issue for you folks?
post #32 of 72
I got the individual Goblet of Fire Blu-ray yesterday, and tried it just now in my PS3 with firmware 2.10. It doesn't work at all. The PS3 tries and tries to read it, but it just can't.

I ordered it from Amazon, unfortunately, so it's going to be a real pain to go through the replacement process.

Did you disable "Force 24Hz playback?"

I don't have a 24p display, so I have never had that enabled. Besides, the disc doesn't load at all -- it can't even get to a point where the 24p setting would be an issue.

Is it stupid that it kinda bothers me that my individual copy of GoF has the beige artwork that belongs with the gift sets? I want my photo disc art so it matches with the other four! I put in my GoF disc and it seems to run just fine in my PS3.

Edit: Yes, I *know* it's stupid. It still bothers me.

Well, then I don't know what to tell you. My beige covered GoF BD (purchased individually from the Best Buy BOGO that started Sunday) works perfectly on my PS3 with firmware 1.90 after I disabled set force 24hz playback to No (it was set to Automatic previously).

Are you sure that you are NOT loading the HD DVD version of GOF ?

I have the same problem with my HP: GOF.

I ejected it several times, and one time I was able to get it to play, but when I tried it again, it wouldn't.

Since I am only one of many people who are having this issue, it seems clear that this is some kind of manufacturing defect. You were lucky and got a good disc. I got one of the bad ones.

Yes. Like I said, I bought the individual Blu-ray release. The disc has the Blu-ray logo.

Yeah, that sucks. I wish there was something I could do to help, but it does appear that there are a bunch of bad discs out there. Can you post any information from the inside of the disc to identify a lot or batch number?

This is worrying me Jason One. I hope that my BLU-RAY copy of HP which is in transit plays properly

Welcome to the wonderful world of OCD, where this pisses me off no end as well.

People with a defective Goblet of Fire might want to call Warner's new replacement hotline at 1-800-553-6937. It was set up for people who got the HD DVD Goblet in the Blu-ray box set, but since the end result is the same (they send you a replacement Blu-ray disc), I don't see why people with a defective Goblet Blu-ray can't use it as well.

I've tried everyone's suggestions, with my Goblets of Fire (single disc). I got it to play on one occasion, then it locked up during the movie. This is my second copy from Amazon.com. I received my replacement disc within 3 days, quick response. I'll try one more time.

I upgraded my PS3 to 2.10 last night and popped in Goblet of Fire to watch with the kids. It played fine with 24Hz set to auto this time on both of my displays upstairs. Good luck to you guys with defective discs.
post #47 of 72
I received my replacement Goblet of Fire from Amazon, and this copy seems to work fine. It loaded in my PS3 without a problem, and I played a few scenes successfully.

I plan to watch it all the way through soon to make sure it's entirely problem-free, but so far, so good.

Just played this disc on my brand new 40GB PS3 that my girlfriend gave me for Xmas today. Played flawlessly and looked UNBELIEVABLE.
post #49 of 72
My copy (Australian) worked fine but the transfer was very average, compression artifacts in the first couple of minutes, black levels off in many scenes, and just not the usual crispness of other disks. I'm wondering if we get the UK version of the transfer which is supposed to be worse then the US release

I had problems with my first GOF from Amazon. I sent it back, got the new copy today, and it has the same exact problem. Very frustrating! Seding it back yet again...
post #51 of 72
Any updates on this. I got hit with this as well, PS3 won't read GOF.

Is the only solution to get a replacement disc?
post #52 of 72
I had to send back two copies from Amazon that I got at the end of January. They were amazingly quick with a replacement (next day), but unfortunately, it had the exact same problem as the first disc.

My guess is that it is an HD DVD that has the Blu-Ray artwork. Kinda like how Warner had the Final Cut of Blade Runner with artwork that said, "Work Print."

I keep meaning to pick a copy up from Best Buy now that I have some gift cards, and I plan to open it and try it in store before I take it home on one of the display Blu-Ray players. Luckily, the fourth movie is our least favorite of the 5, so we can live without the disc for the time being.

I don't think it's a HD-DVD. My friend with a PS3 tried it and it worked perfectly. I think it's got something to do with the model or batch of PS3. Mine's an early set and it's BD drive could be more sensitive or something

I doubt it. My PS3 was purchased in early December 2006, and it's working like a champ.

Make sure when trying the disc, or new versions of the disc you turn off the PS3 using the switch in the back.

The reason I say this, is because one time I was loading a Blu-ray (can't remember which title) and I quit while it was loading BD-J stuff. From that point on it wouldn't load the disc at all. However, other Blu-rays played perfectly. So to solve it all I did was turn off the PS3 using the switch in the back for a couple minutes, then turned it back on. It reads the disc fine now.

Worth a try anyway.

Wow, glad I stumbled onto this thread. My GOF displays the exact same issues, the spinning up/no reading, and when I finally get it to play, it skips and freaks out during the ball-room scene. Guess I'm not the only one
post #57 of 72
Well, I guess I'm one of the lucky ones. I tried out all five of my Harry Potter BDs this morning. All five of them load quickly and seem to play flawlessly. Now, I only watched a few minutes of the earlier ones (1-4) and tried some chapter skips and special features, but didn't run into any problems, including the ballroom scene from Goblet of Fire. They're all singles, most of them bought from the big Amazon BOGO before Christmas. I was disapointed that Goblet of Fire had the beige artwork as opposed to the photo art on the disc, but as it plays correctly, I think I can live with that.
post #58 of 72
Well there are those of us who's disc work perfectly. I too have the beige artwork'd Goblet of Fire disc, and it plays perfectly fine in my PS3 (watched it again last night actually).
post #59 of 72
I just updated my PS3 to 2.20 firmware and now the GOF disc works! It does take a bit longer than other BD discs to load and there is still that noise, but it will eventually load after about 15secs. Previously, I've left it for over 1 minute and it still wouldn't load.

Didn't have time to watch the entire movie though. For now, I'm just happy that ths disc is loading up...

I just picked up the latest 2 Blu-Rays from Frys and Goblet (the one I really wanted to watch) failed in my PS3 as described. I drove some 40 miles round trip to exchange it, got their last copy and that one doesn't work either. I have the latest firmware. I watched as a Fry's employee put the defective disc in another BR player they had at the returns desk and it played fine there.

Guess I'll have to contact Warner Bros and maybe have a solution by the fall (when Happy Feet glitched consistently on my HD-DVD a year ago, I ended up going back and forth with Warners for months and finally trading it for the Blu-Ray version - hope I don't have to switch back to HD-DVD for this one!)
