    Ripping it with what ?

    It's an xml file, presumably created by the ripping tool to to hold information regarding the index for the file.

    anydvd of course.

    nope, the filmindex.xml is there on the disc. I'm wondering what it does cos this version is sold in Australia and when I chuck it into a Jap PS3 it plays with Jap trailers and menus. Now, I'm wondering if this file is the cause of this problem since I want to watch it with english menus that will simply deleting the file and all associated files fix this problem?

    that's what I want to know.

    Is this a DVD or BluRay ?

    This file is not part of the DVD structure, and would be ignored by a DVD player (including the PS3)

    Is it in the blu-ray root folder? if so I doubt it has anything to do with the blu-ray video playback.

    But you can try open the file with notepad and post the information in this topic.

    It could be something left over from the authoring process and copied accidentally to the disc. It does seem to indicate that this is a Japanese release though.

    it does and this is sold in Australia too (coded as AB). I'm going to do a test to see if deleting this file, along with the zip file, will make it play with english menus on my japanese ps3.

    there's only 1 way to find out and I've started shrinking it down with BD Rebuilder.

    I've dug more into the files and it seems that there's a settings.xml file within the disc so I've modified that and will have to see if it does change.
