    Have you tried it again and does it still work? If it still identifies the disc it will tell you that you already own the title.

    This is why I think the UPC/EAN is important to list because there can be multiple releases of a title. One version may be properly identified whereas the other may not be identified. I've come across that on a few titles where I own several versions of a title.

        That's MoWeb. I just tested my copy from the original 1999 The Nightmare on Elm Street Collection release and the disc comes back as "Unable to identify this disc." UPC for the box set is 7-94043-47882-6.

          Are you given any options to manually verify or report the issue?

            Yes, I was given the option to manually verify the disc and report it. I submitted the correct title so that it can be fixed.

            The only time I'm not given that option is when a title is mismapped to a title I already own. In that case there's no way to report that the title is incorrectly mapped as that option isn't provided to the user. I would like to see the "Not my disc." option that is present in other scenarios added in this instance.

                Thank you. Reporting with the software is the most important part of this. It's the easiest way for us to track which titles need to be fixed.

                    You're welcome. I was just trying to help corroborate what Woodoo4Vudu was seeing. Does it help to get the problem fixed if more than one person reports the same problem through the software? Does it help for any one individual to report the problem more than once? Can you see who reported what titles?

                    I ask because, from a consumer's perspective, it's hard to see the rhyme or reason as to what titles get fixed first or whether than information is successfully reaches Vudu. I admit I've sometimes wondered if the information is being delivered.

                    For example, the original Predator Blu-ray release resulted in an "Unable to identify this disc." error message but the rerelease Predator Blu-ray was successfully identified by the software. I reported the error, through the software, for the original release and it appeared to be fixed within a week but other errors have persisted for 4-6 months.

                      Yes, this has happened to me on a few disks where it is mismapped to a title that I already own so there's no way to report it in the software since it thinks I already have it...

                        Those are the titles that it helps to post here. In a lot of cases, its already been reported, but it still helps.

                          Guess these should be reported too. The following titles are on the D2D eligible list but only have a DVD option and no Blu-ray option although a Blu-ray release exists.

                          As Good As It Gets (1997)
                          Battlestar Galactica (1978; The Movie)
                          Christine (1983)
                          Experiment in Terror (1962)
                          Mysterious Island (1961)
                          Nicholas and Alexandra (1971)
                          Steel Magnolias (1989)
                          Superman IV: The Quest for Peace (1987)

                          City of Ember (2008)
                          Freedomland (2006)
                          The Mexican (2001)

                            I will report the specific movies but I want to wait until some of them are corrected because then I will have a reason to try all 48 of the movies on the VuduToGo app that are currently not working for one reason or another.
