Having problems with the Die Hards!

Just got the boxset and have a Sammy BDP1000 with latest firmware.
Die Hard just will not start. The screen just shows the loading wheel just going around while Live Free..... shows the Simpsons trailer (in silence I add) and then goes to a black screen. No loading wheel.

Die Hards 2 & 3 load up alright, the on-screen menu is abit juttery but I can put up with that. But these discs seem so Java heavy that it slows down alot of machines.

Should I wait for another firmware like they did for Fox last time?

Check out AVS to see if anyone else is having issues. I know there were some problems with the Samsung 1200 units...not sure about 1000 though. I even heard the disc was taking 2-3 minutes to load in PS3s.

If the problem continues, I'd reccomend swapping the set out if you bought it locally. If its the same issues you will have to wait for a Firmware update which may take a while. The movies have been out for a week now and there is no update as of yet.

I've had some audio drop-outs playing Live Free on the PS3. Haven't noticed this with any other disc.
