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?
...And then there's the guy who saw the sign that said "Wet Floor", so he did.

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.
