Clerks 2 won't play on my Xbox 360

I just bought Clerks 2 on HD. I put it into my 360 add-on and a screen comes up saying that I can't play the movie because of the settings on the player. All of my settings on my 360 are "allow everything" but there are no settings for the add-on. This doesn't happen with any other movie I have.

DAMMIT. I held out so long for this, even knowing the Weinstein discs were having problems. Mine should be here Thurs/Fri from Amazon, I hope it works with the A1.

Bought mine Friday when I got the add-on itself and it played fine. No problems what so ever, the audio is really muted, but apparently that is more an issue with the 360 add-on itself.

As far as this goes, I had the same warning, but all I done was login my default Xbox Live account and it played. Are you trying to play it before the login in (ignore question, if you have one setting and auto-login).

That doesn't answer my question. I just need some help with getting this disc to work.

Take it back to get another disc. You may have a bad disc. Mine works fine without any problems on my 360 Ad-on.

Rusty James wasn't talking to you.

He was telling bravesmg that there are no known pressing issues with the disc. As MaNiaC suggests, take it back - Clerks II HD DVD works fine on my x360.

I got mine Saturday and I did have one instance of a brief pause right when the "donkey truck" is pulling up to Mooby's. It reminded me of a not so graceful layer change on a standard DVD, but this is the first time I've seen something like that on HD-DVD. It is reproducable every time, and the first time it happened the audio actually dropped out.

I'll be interested to hear how it does on the G2 machines. My copy of Slevin played fine BTW.

I'm getting mine today. Hopefully I'll be okay. Are you connected to Live? I think it did an update when I installed it. Anyone know when they're going to patch the audio problems?

I'm doing in-store pickup for Clerks & Mummy Returns at Best Buy. I did it last week for Crank too. You can do it for preorders shortly after midnight. They are pretty bad with HD-DVD & BluRay new releases. They were out of Crank when I went to pick up mine already. In-store pickup before the store opens is definitely the way to go. They send the "ready to pickup" email before the store even opens.

It could work fine, but I'm still avoiding some of the first Weinstein releases that were buggy. It's discouraging to hear that it could be a possibility with these releases.

This will be the third time I have taken it back. Is there anything else that I can do?

I would try it on another player, one if store if you don't know someone who has one. If it works I would assume you need to replace the add on.

Also as someone stated connect to xbox live as some hd dvds require a update to play, this happened when I inserted King Kong.

Good luck

I got it & had some problems. Both discs just gave me black screens when they loaded. I ejected them & put them back in & both discs worked when I put them in the second time. Disc 2 flashed what looked like an error message saying the disc couldn't play because of internet settings, but then played anyway. Disc 1 flashed a message saying it wouldn't play because of parental settings, but then played anyway. so there is something weird going on with this disc.

Mine just had one bried pause, very similar to a layer change around the 1:03:00 mark. It happens every time at the same spot. Not sure if it is actually a layer change, but if it is it's the first one I've noticed while playing an HD-DVD.

I have an HD-A1.

I've noticed layer changes on 50GB BluRays. My PS3 was freezing on them until they did the last update. So it may be a layer change, I think it's a 30GB.

Yeah, I noticed that, too. It's more than likely a layer change.

My HD DVD stuttered and sputtered a couple times during the movie. First time anything like that bad has happened since the last firmware upgrade.

Peter Bracke is out of his mind if he thinks the extras on this set are 1080p, incidentally.

No problems on mine, but there is a definite layer change when the donkey truck pulls up...

The parental controls poped up briefly when I first put it in. For like 2 seconds.

i just got this today. second copy.
i'm using the 360 add-on, btw.

anyways.
put it in.
and i get a message about parental controls.
this sticks around for 2-3 seconds.
then the screen gets REALLY glitchy, and pixellated.
i figured the dvd player froze.
i get up to restart it, and it goes to the main menu.

from there, VERY SLOWLY, i might add, i go to turn on english subtitles.
i start the movie with the introduction.
the subtitles are about 2 seconds delayed.
outstanding.

kevin smith gets to the part about calling his friends, and the dvd player completely freezes.
i let it sit for a minute, no dice.

i restart the dvd player, and go straight to the movie.
the delay is sickening, and the subtitles match up, until when randal makes the LOTR nerd puke.

2 second delay. again.

i don't wanna go back and get a third one.
i can't return it completely.
should i try to sell it, or keep it?

i mean, could this shit be fixed via firmware updates or what the fuck happens now?
i'm sorry for pottymouth of the year 2007, but i'm REALLY unhappy.

this was my number one most-looked-forward to HD-DVD title, and now that i have it and two copies havent worked..


yea there's gonna be hell to pay.
god damn it, weinsteins.
