DeSpecialized Edition - Disc Playback Help

Author

 (Edited)

Hi, I’m new to this forum and I’m not sure if this goes here. But anyways, my boyfriend got me the DeSpecialized Edition of the Star Wars trilogy on Blu-ray and I love them. However, I’m having trouble playing the first movie on the main disc. I can’t even highlight the options on the main menu to select them.

Please, do you guys know how to help?

I have a despecialized blu ray set someone helped me make. V and vi play fine on my xbox one x but iv just loops the menu without letting me select play. Any help or workarounds would be great. It is a 2.7 disc that plays the trailer on the menu but just loops and i cant highlight play. My v and vi discs are fine.

We’d need more details on the disc – Despecialized doesn’t originally come in a disc format with menus, so you’re dealing with someone’s repackaging of DeEd. Any ideas about the origin of the disc, i.e. name of the torrent or something?

Do the other films work, or is just Star Wars not working? Also, have you tried playing the disc in another BD player or game console? It might sound crazy but sometimes one player can play a disc that another struggles with.

Merry Christmas. 😃

I figured it out with help from a friend who also has a copy. So the problem has been solved. Also, it was just the first Star Wars. But thank you. 😉

how did you fix it

I played it on a PS4. So if the disc for Star Wars: DeSpecialized Edition (aka Ep. IV) is being played on, say, that or an X-Box One, here is what one a friend told me: “I had to pull up the lower/bottom information/display. I had to manually select the “title scene.” For my console, I went to title “10” to start the movie. Options “1-9” went through the other menu options.” that should do the trick.”

But for Return of the Jedi, you’ll need to do title “4”.

Sorry for the super-late reply.

Also forgot this detail, in terms of playing them on a PS4: “At the main menu, click the Options button on your PS4 controller, click Control Panel, then Jump (the button that looks like a right turn) and manually switch the Title to 10 (or 4, if you’re watching “Jedi”).”
