    I rented Enigma last night and it would not play at all on my Toshiba 3750 player. It wouldn't load at all. It was weird because the disc was very clean with no scratches, and other discs still played on the Toshiba.

    It wasn't a total waste however, as after digging out my older Sony DVD player, it played fine on it. It also played on my computer DVD drive.

    The picture quality wasn't that good though, which confirms what I have read about a poor transfer.

    There is definately a problem with the Enigma disc. I could not get it to load on three different players. Two of the players are Pioneers and the third is Phillips. The disc would just not load. But get this after I ejected and inserted the disc a couple of times, suddenly one of the Pioneer players read the disc and I was able to watch the film. Maybe you ought to try this too. By the way atleast on one of the Pioneer players I was able to get the player to load the disc several times. Basically you just have to try several times.

    I had no problems with it on my Tosh 3750 (aside from the terrible transfer, that is).

    Wouldn't play on my Toshiba 3109. No problems with Vertigo, though.

    My Pioneer DV-05 doesn't like this disc either. Damn!!!

    My Dell laptop will read it though. . .(I walked by a Radio Shack yesterday, thinking "There's something I wanted to get, but I can't remember what. . .",now I remember what--the cables to connect my laptop to my HT!!!)

    I rented Enigma from netflix and it worked fine on my Toshiba 3109. Its even an older version of the player (i.e. no new firmware).

    Strange as I usually get the same problems other Toshiba owners get.
