I recently purchased 'Stargate SG-1 The complete Series' seasons 1 - 10 from Amazon.
Its a box-set containing 2 'books' and an episode booklet; each 'book' has 27 discs in individual cardboard pockets (3 pockets per page). Discs are region1, I'm in region 4 (Australia) and my Philips DVD player (DVP5900/98) has no probs playing region 1 discs, nor do my Pioneer and LG burners.
Some of the discs had scratches on them, but nearly all discs played without fault. I made a complaint to Amazon re scratches and they shipped a second set; but the replacement set looked like someone had been skating on sandpaper with them, so they are going back to Amazon.
Regardless of the scratches; I managed to use AnyDVD to rip all 54 discs to a spare 500GB WD sata drive; figured that was a safe way of backing up the whole set in addition to the original set I received and am keeping.
Problem with SG-1 season 9 disc 4
after loading the disc into player, it goes through the normal load screens etc and eventually gets to the menu 'episodes' and 'features' (is this root or title menu?).
I select 'episodes', which then briefly displays a menu list of the 4 episodes, then before I can do anything, it goes back to the DVD player screen as though the disc has been stopped.
This identical problem occurs on the same disc in the second set of discs. The discs from both sets work fine on my PC's; select episodes with mouse, then choose the one to watch and all play fine - but not in the DVD palyer.
So I figure there maybe a problem with the menu itself; can this be fixed so I can create a new disc which will then work in DVD player?
