Just picked up the extended edition on blu-ray today and disc 1, the movie disc, refuses to play. My player, a sony bdp s350 doesn't recognize the disc. Anyone else having similar problems?

Specifically it says it cannot operate the disc. Tried disc 2 and that played.

Have you tried it in another player?
And if you don't have access to another player, I'd return it and get another copy. If it happens again with a second copy, I'd again suspect a firmware issue that your player hasn't had corrected yet.

I checked and the last firmware for his player was in 2012. It could just be a defective disc.

Mine played fine and I'm using an older Panasonic Blu-ray player (I had to retire my much more recent workhorse player after wearing it out apparently).

Had problems with the third Hobbit standard 3D release on my Oppo player. Would not play.


A simple firmware upgrade did the trick.


However, I agree you should try it in a different player.
