    Hmm, I think you might have a DVD player problem. Check to make sure nothing's wrong with the DVD player (just don't remove anything that requires the use of a screwdriver!). If you have another DVD player, try the disc on that one. If it still doesn't work, then there's something wrong with the disc.
    Does your DVD player put any message or anything on the screen when you put the disc in?

    no this not the dvd player

    theres a timer on the DVD player and onces it gets to 30 secs it jumps back to 24 secs and just keeps doing that

    Have you tried playing the disc in another dvd player? I've had audio CDs in the past that have played okay in some stereos and not others for example. :)

    Also, have you tried playing it on your pc?

    Your disc could have a minute scratch therefore stopping the disc from moving on. Trying buying a disc cleaner and see how his works. Otherwise without a receipt you will have to buy a new one!

    I couldn't find anything in the stores to clean the discs, so I had to buy back season 1 of CSI and will have to do the same for season 3... Revenge Is Best Served Cold gets stuck too, or it jumps to another episode and jumps back... Weird!!!

    Australian season 3 disks are the same, so don't worry. I just toss them into my multi-zone portable player and hook it up to the TV. Only way to get around it for me.

    I got the third season the other day and the third disk in it won't work. All of the other ones work just not the third. I looked at it and it looks completly fine. It was brand new and they won't let me return it for another one because it has been opened. Any suggestions??

    Most stores won't let you "return" a DVD that's been opened, but many will "exchange" something that's defective for the same item. Check into that.

    Re: problem with dvd's

    Question: I brought CSI:miami season 3 part 3 a few weeks ago and in a rush to watch it i didn't pay that much attention to the box. I have now just realised that there isn't one of those leaflets in it that tell you what happeneds in each episode. Not that i want to return it or anything but has anyone else found that their box lacks this too?
    BTW in live in the UK and brought it from Amazon

    Did you mean part 2? I have both booklets in parts 1 and 2 (bought from Play.com). This is what I like about the Region 2 dvds - you get booklets and pictures! :D The Region 1 releases don't have these, but they are released much sooner and are cheaper. Pros and cons I guess. :)

    Re: problem with dvd's

    I can answer a couple of these questions. ;)

    Each dvd disk contains 4 episodes. Each season usually has 6 episodes with audio commentaries. When you go to watch an episode with a commentary, you are asked if you want to watch it with or without the commentary and you make the selection. Hope that helps. :)

    Sorry, but I'm not sure about file sizes/formats.

    Re: problem with dvd's

    Well my mam bought me Season 3 Region 2 (again as I have Region 1) from Tesco's when it was on the BOGOF (Buy One Get One Free for those you didn't know that.) and it doesn't have any little books and I like them cos they have nice glossy pics. Very dissapointing I think.
