Just bought my third set of Firefly DVDs (folks I'm converting always want to buy my set off of me, rather than buying their own), and Disc Three won't run in my slot-loading iMac unless I coerce, cajole, or con it.

Had the same problem with Disc Two of my second set, and Disc One of my first set.

Intriguing, huh?

You'll have to by a fourth set to see if the pattern holds. If it does; woooo spooooky.

But if #4 of the fourth set fills the pattern, does't it call for a fifth set? We need to know if the problem rotates back to #1 or is cured.
(Or passes into another set -- cue Twilight Zone music now)

No, in the 5th set it begins to get worse. 1 and 2 then start having the problems, followed by 1 and 3, 1 and 4, 2 and 3, 2 and 4, and finally 3 and 4. The 11th set, though, is alright. It's cured. Or is it that 1 2 and 3 are a problem? Hrm...I don't care to think of the combinations there...123,124,134,234 I guess are the only ones...The 15th set is where they all go bad. The 16th set, though...is what I wonder. Will it start back over with just 1 or will it be cured? Hmm...go buy 13 more to find out! :)

It may not be the discs themselves but an anomaly at the particular point on the space-time continuum which is occupied by our thread-starter's player.
H'mmm...

See, now that makes sense to me.
I've always had "strange luck".

I have a problem getting my DVD player to play the last two episodes on disc three. Don't know why. It's a good quality DVD player.

Folk might not grok a religion in competition with Joss-worship. Would you settle for a sect?

clj, do we want to know about your strange luck??

jaynesgirl, have you tried your funky disc in another good-for-sure player?
DVDs are weird -- I have one which plays the feature *above* the one which is clicked, and another which seems to want to Play Movie unless I can avoid going over that choice on my way to select a feature. One works far better with the Remote than the mouse. And so on...
All are from presumably legitimate sources.

bun, mystified

A sect would be nice :)

If the seller won't replace the DVD's then try and get a hold of FOX

not sure if this will help but theres www.foxdvd.com adverstised on a peice of paper with the set - maybe they have contact info.

What about the idea that at that point, the discs work fine, and the bug passes to the second series that Joss should be allowed to make. We all know that it's worthwhile, and that Joss has proven that it is.

The question is, if Joss does get to make a second series, what will he call it.

In fact, if the problem does pass to series two that should be made, will it coincide with when CLJOHNSTON108 gets the last one of Firefly with the fault?

hmmm... makes for some interesting thinking

PS, don't hate me, just an idea that came into my head!

Anybody who disagrees with any of this violently can do so. But no matter what you do, "You can't take the sky from me".

Hate you, andman? Naw.
Or join the club -- I may be in trouble for scratching CaptainCoupi on the flank to elicit the well-known foot-thumps.
Oh, well.

I think we have ghoulfish's sect well started here. andman can be one of the Theologians. clj
can tell stories of strange luck which can be collected into an Anthology. Our Lady of the Funky Disc can be a Founding Mother. There will be Icons and Avatars. Who's up for Chants? Ritual? Lots of work to do here.

And first, last, always, let's take up a collection.
