I'm obviously not an expert, but could it have run that scan because it's a new video and maybe there's a problem with the disc? Sorry for your troubles, just trying to help.

You buy it - you take it home. you're forced to watch an un-skippable 3minute "Piracy is BAD!!" Video (diddnt yo just buy it? Why are you watching that ??? Stumps me too)
Some companies even have the nerve to tack on to the end of the anti-piracy Skit, 3-5 "Previews" for other movies. Sometimes Skippable - The ones that are not you tend to watch once then put it under the bed so you dont have to put yourself thru that again.
Then theres the portability problem! More copy protection that's not compatable with you're PC (Or is simply designed NOT to play on a PC - DVD player only)
all this for going to the shop, and forking out $39.95 for the new release DVD/Blue Ray.
I believe that the illigeal type will play on anything once you've burnt it to CD. When you pop it in you're Drive it instantly brings up the Title menu.
I actualy kind of think it's funny that the people buying DVD's and Blu Ray allow themselves to put up with that crap. It can be looked at as a form of Conditioning as well. Do the right thing - Still get punished outlook.
Sony is a Dirty corporation. They deliberately gave Anonymous a bad name. Anon only attacked them for 1day. They stopped beacuse of the Gamer's outcry. Sony kept their service down deliberately after that to make public backlash at Anon. Now they're going at it again by screwing over paying customers with outrageous, and un-necessary copy protection.
Well done Sony.

i remember that little rootkit fiasco. nasty stuff especially since no good way to uninstall it when first released without messing up drivers for IDE/SATA and any physical or removal media causing the devices not to e recognized or even windows boot up failure.
Do you have any programs that may cause any issues with potential anti-piracy methods? i use anydvd which decrypts most DVD protections so i can copy them and occasionally have problems with the very latest dvd releases.. which means whatever company released the movie upped their anti-piracy. another potential software conflict could be CD emulation software like daemon=tools or alcohol120%.
