Apparently the bug affects ALL BD-Java enhanced titles. The above list are just the few I have had issues with. Most of the current notebook players/burners sold on new systems are profile 1.0, not profile 1.1 or 2.0.
The BD-Java discs try to load enhanced menus, but because of the software bug are unable to causing the player to crash and the black screen. Also I suggest purchasing Powerdvd Ultra, as they will soon be releasing a patch to fix the issue. Alienware uses a butchered version of Powerdvd for blu-ray playback, and there is no telling when they will patch their version- but it will most likely be after the official patch. Also, if you get Ultra you can submit a ticket, and they will give you a download lnk for the patched software aleast a month before the public release.
