Any issues w/Zack and Miri Make a Porno BR?

I bought a used copy from gohastings.com back in January. Finally got around to watching it, and low and behold, it gets to a "LOADING..." screen, then thats it.

There don't appear to be any scratches on the disc itself.

I tried googling, but couldn't find anything, but any known issues with this movie on BR?

I'm going to try and see if gohastings would exchange... doubtful given how long ago I bought it, but worth I shot I guess.

I had no issues on my copy using my PS3. I have watched it multiple times and have never experienced that. What player are you using to watch it on? have you looked to see if you can update the firmware?

I too use a PS3, so I'm pretty sure its not a firmware issue.

I've also used my PS3 to play it multiple times, and I've never had an issue.

Mind you, I did purchase it around the time it came out, so I don't know if any additional pressings might have had any issues...

I rented this disc back when it first came out from Blockbuster and it wouldn't load on my friends PS3. We switched it and the second copy didn't seem to either but we just happened to leave it on and it finally did after 20 minutes. Every time after that it was fine. I bought a copy and it loaded right away on my PS3 with updated firmware. You might just try giving it time (like 20 minutes).

Will, I did give it time... like 2 hours, and it never loaded.

But, I must say gohastings customer service was fantastic. They didn't have another used copy to send me as a replacement, but they just refunded me my money, and told me to throw about the disc. Again, this was almost SIX months after I bought it.

That's good at least, sorry it didn't work though. I think the early Weinstein titles were reportedly very buggy.

Have you tried updating your bluray player's firmware?

No offense, but did you even read anything but his initial post?

Try turning off the BD-Live access on your PS3. I don't remember where it is and I can't check it at the moment, but one of the options under your settings gives you a BD-Live option to either automatically connect or ask first. Turn off the auto connect if it is on and that should fix it.

I've confirmed going into the settings and changing the internet access for the blu-ray to 'confirm' and then denying access to the internet will get past the 'Loading...' screen.

Hey!

I also was stuck on the loading page on my PS3. I disabled the internet on my PS3 and it worked like magic! Maybe it will work for you?

Cheers,

Mike

Re: Any issues w/Zack and Miri Make a Porno BR?

I watched the BD when it first was released on my PS3 and it was fine.
About a year later, I tried watching it again and could not get past the loading screen either.
Disgusted . . . I sold it.

Re: Any issues w/Zack and Miri Make a Porno BR?

odd...my BD of this is doing the same thing and if you turn off the BD live function...it works. Odd. Never had that issue before. Why does happen to this BD specifically?

Thanks for posting this. I had to return Zack & Miri make a porno back to Netflix thinking it was a disc issue as I did see a scratch going across the disc, so I thought that had something to do with it hanging at the loading screen.

I just swapped my wireless connection to an Ethernet connection since I don't have one and it worked. Never had this problem before, first time ever and I keep my PS3 up to date with the firmware updates. I wonder if it has something to do with wired vs wireless? Thanks again!
