Why won't my RP-91 play There's Something About Mary?

    It plays the Fox promo that precedes the menu perfectly but then up pops the menu and I can't move beyond the menu. I have tried two different discs-both from Blockbuster with the Blockbuster protection sheild. (I've probably rented 20 some odd discs with the sheild and have no prior difficulty.) I hit resume play in the menu and and the RP-91 registers play, the screen and sound go dead, and a note pops up from the RP-91 after a few minutes that says "check disc." What's up?

    Hmmmm. im not sure Henry, I havent rented any movies in a long time. I usually buy a few movies a week. Maybe someone else that rents alot has had this problem. I must say that I havent had 1 problem with any movie that I have watched on my RP91.

    Try cleaning the disk. This has done wonders in playability for me.

    What is the shield? Whatever it is, it seems like another good reason to avoid Blockbuster...

    Doesn't the rental of this movie come with a free sample of the "hair gel"? Must have gotten on the disk [​IMG]

    Eugene,
    The shield is probably a non-removable sticker that they put on the spindle area of the disc. A friend of mine owns a DVD only rental store and he was pretty much forced in to doing this due to dishonest customers who would rent a disc and trade it out for one of their own of the same title they had scratched. It sucks but they have to protect themselves.
