    Warner DVD's not working thread - watch to make sure they still play

    My way of dealing with the situation that has arisen is to place the main cause on my "ignore" list and that's what I'm doing.

    So what? We already know she is going to provide replacement discs if they exist. Her sending you a shipping label so that you can return one of the faulty discs does not conflict with her promise. You have no reason to feel disappointed unless, of course, you enjoy feeling disappointed.

    I watched Easy To Love from the second Esther Williams box-set last night. I'm very pleased to report that it played without any problems.

    I don't think there is one. The first thing to do is try your disc in a different Blu-ray player as sometimes a disc that won't play in one machine will in another.

    I'm sorry to hear that. I played my copy a few weeks ago and I had no problems.

    Ah! Alice Adams! The film that opened my eyes to two major truths about my taste in films: that I like Fred MacMurray a lot and that I don't like Katharine Hepburn at all! I'll have to buy this DVD one day.

    I did watch Land Of The Pharaohs yesterday and it played perfectly! I was in the right mood and I enjoyed the film enormously. I notice on IMDB the "reviewers" trot out the usual clichés - cheesy, campy etc. - but I think it's a pretty good film. Mind you, it's not coming out on Blu-ray any time...

    If I'm in the right mood, I'll sample my DVD of Land of the Pharaohs tonight. If I do, I'll report back.

    In the past few days I've watched three Elizabeth Taylor movies on Warner Archives DVD-Rs and they all played without any problem: Rhapsody, The Girl Who Had Everything and Julia Misbehaves.

    I tried to watch Lucky Me last night. All went well until mid-way through chapter 25 and then . . . disaster. It's Region free so I tried it in a different player: exactly the same non-result.. Great shame as I like this film.

    I recently ordered Sunday In New York, a Warner Archive DVD. It arrived yesterday and doesn't play on any of my machines! It's going back, boys, It's going back!

    I make a point of re-watching all my discs. If I have no new disc on hand, I just browse my collection and pick whichever film I'm in the mood for. I'm sorry to report that my DVD of Bathing Beauty from the first Esther Williams Box-set has developed a "freezing point" problem. Fortunately I...

    I watched Executive Suite from the Barbara Stanwyck box set a few weeks ago, and it played without problems. The only disc issued by Warners I've had go wrong was On An Island With You from the first Esther Williams box set.
