I have a Samsung Bluray player BD-P1500 which does not appear to recognise firmware on CD or USB. I have been at it for hours and burnt at least 5 CDs and to no avail.
I have downloaded the appropriate firnware from the Samsung website (ISO version and USB version)
With the USB, you just copy the .RUF file onto a blank stick and whack it into the USB port with no CD in the drive bay. In my case, the bluray player only gets so far as to recognise that a USB stick was plugged in, but sadly, it does nothing with the firmware therein.
With the CD, you download an ISO file, burn a CD using the ISO image creation s/w on a Mac or a PC, which basically means you end up with the .RUF file on a CD. I have tried burning the ISO on both Mac and PC but neither work. I load the CD into the bluray player and get a "Disc can not be played" erro [sic]
Every video on this subject on BooTube and everywhere else, shows the person happily putting the CD or USB stick in and presto, the CD / USB is recognised and the uploads and firmware updates begin. But not here.
Note I do not have the means to connect the bluray player via the ethernet connection.
Can EE assist? Why is the firmware not recognised by the bluray player on th CD and USB and how can I fix it to make it recognised so the firmware can be updated?
