why can't I get Shaolin Soccer region 0 to play?

i put the disc in to play, and all it does is keep on saying that its a disc error and that it was unable to read the disc. I have the region 0 Universe dvd with dts, anamorphic widescreen and the ability to play the movie with more scenes. Oh and my player is a samsung dvd-101 aka a dvd/vcr combo. the disc played fine on my jvc player. the only other dvd that doesn't play is a boot i got from ebay of iron monkey. (Oh and i got Shaolin Soccer from

Strange. If there aren't any scratches on the DVD, then I have no idea why it wouldn't play. I really don't like combo players, though. Too many things can go wrong with them, I think.

Okay, so stupid question: why don't you just watch the movie on your JVC player?

perhaps the player needs cleaning - my Toshiba needs cleaning and will play almost anything, but started giving me errors on HK dvds before anything else. You could try boiling the disc.

I think several players have trouble with this particular DVD. My Panasonic gets about halfway through & then freezes up. I'm forced to watch the movie on my computer.

At least you can take the JVC out of your room & hook it up to the big screen...

Yeah, I think this disc is problematic depending on what player you use. My disc freezes like crazy on one of my players (a cheap Curtis one) but works fine on my others.

I think it maybe the manufacturer. I had to return two copies (lucky for me it was local) before I got a copy that played on all my players. I purchased it when it first came out; I don't know if later pressings are any better. Another thing I noticed too was that when I select DTS; the DTS trailer has no sound but the movie audio in DTS played fine.
