    A friend asked me if I had read of any problems with the Mamma Mia BD. He's tried three different discs and they've all been unreadable in his Sony BDP-S500. I did some searching but couldn't find any reports (admittedly my searching might be a bit sub-par as I haven't had my full quota of caffeine yet).

    Could this be a firmware issue?

    Sounds like it to me.

    We didn't have any problems playing it on a Samsung 5000.

    I'd say it's a good bet, Dave.

    When I first played the Mamma Mia! Blu-ray on my Panny BD-10 the audio was VERY distorted. An update on the player firmware (which, admittedly, I had been lackadaisical in performing) took care of the issue immediately--although some might argue there's no "fixing" the sound on that disc.

    My father had the same problem and the firmware update fixed it right up.
