Xe1 Error Messages

Recommended Posts

There is a long story behind this, however short version is, I wound up playing my HD-DVD version of The Eagles Farewell I Tour this afternoon.

I get to Track Ten (In The City) and about ten seconds into the song it freezes...no sound and frozen picture on screen. Screen goes black and error message pops up.

Cannot play disc with a code 408bc509.

Any clues as to what this means; and yes I already worked out it means it won't play ;) ?

Eject disc and restart at same track; same problem and same message.

Eject disc and start at next track (track 11) and it plays fine.

Thanks

From that thread, folk should check their older blu-ray titles as well.

Not much you can do if it has something to do with a "chemical process"

Because I'm a Hardware Dealer here in Vienna, I was able to put my hands on different copies of the same title - some worked perfectly, some not.

I fear, that the reason is a chemical prccess, which has reached different levels on different discs now...

I gather the Warner replacement program doesn't extend to outside the US (well thats if its still going)

I read sometime ago about issues with "glue" in relation to SACD hybrids (multiple layer SACDs).

Apparently this is why audiophiles/collectors prefer single-layer SACDs.

G'day SDL

Same scenario here.

Maybe I should start considering storing to a HDD or some such technology for streaming, in case they fail!?

Will try that pete, thanks.

But hadn't played any discs for a while and seems to be more than a coincidence.

Just tried Harry Potter 5 and code got error code a couple of mins in <_<

Was just looking to get back into them as I possibly have got enough kids out of the house to get a projector based theatre room going.

If this is disc rot setting in it would be very dissapointing.

Warner Bros really did kill HD DVD :lol:

My toshiba xe1 had been freezing on a few DVDs and a couple of HDDVDs (Bourne Ultimatum, Dreamgirls) so no longer wanted to risk relying solely on the player.

I got a Xbox 360 hddvd drive off ebay and have been using MakeMKV (Still free) to back them up. I only select the main movie and English soundtrack so most of the movies are between 15 and 20GB each. It is a lossless process too which i like.

It is such a shame to have these High definition discs and not be able to utilise them 'properly', but the MKV's played through the laptop look just as good. I really don't want to re-buy the movies on Blu-ray when, in most cases, I already paid for the same high definition version of the movie.

I don't have time to check 50 discs, and what is going to be the real issue is when you sit down to watch one to find it fails an hour or so into the movie. I might write to WB and ask why they have no replacement program here - but my other problem is some of mine are from the US some from UK and others here. also while the topisc seem to be about WB movies, not sure why it won't effect Paramount, Universal and others?
