Blu-rays will not play on a DVD player of any kind. If you already have an HDTV I'd buy a blu-ray player anyway (they up-convert DVD's too). if you only have an SDTV then I'd exchange the disc.
Can you play Blu-Ray discs on up convert DVD players? I realize you can't take advantage of the Hi Def. Wondering if it will even play. Received Blu-Ray as gift recently and have been thinking about buying a Blu-Ray player. Trying to confirm if I should keep Blu-Ray or exchange for DVD.
