Question about Sony BDP-S300 Blu-Ray Disc Player
My Sony Blue Ray DVD player won't play Kung Fu Panda Blue Ray disc. Previews and menu runs properly. When I push play movie, this options shuts down the blue ray player. Any reason why? Can this be remedied?
I fixed this exactly as previous posted solutions, however a couple of points.
a) recordable CDs work if you don't have a DVD burner.
b) I didn't have a CD burner that would do an "image burn", I downloaded a free copy of "Express Burn" and that worked fine. The disk needs to be "finalised" or "fixated", it should do this automatically, or it may be a tick box selection.
c) I got a "No DWLD 09" when I put the disk into the player. I found this was an incompatibility with the CD-R (Maxwell) I was using. I changed to JVC and it worked fine.

You guys all need to upgrade the Firmware on the Sony Blue Ray player to the newest Revision - 4.3, released 10/31/08. If you do a search for Sony bdp-s300 Firmware, it will take you to Sony's website where you can download an .iso file to burn as an image onto a recordable CD - from there, you put the CD into your Blue Ray player and it will automatically update to the newest Firmware - takes about 30 minutes.
After this, you will be able to watch these movies that do not play currently.

This solution is really just confirming the previous solution, use the URL on previous solution, this takes you to the US sony site, Follow the instuctions to the letter, make sure you use the "Burn Image" Option on your CD burner and finalize the disc, Do not make a data disc! Do as it tells you 'Exactly' I can now watch "The Panda" No problem at all!!

Unable to play BD-R or BD-RE discs in the Blu-ray Disc® (BD) player.
If your computer is equipped with a DVD burner and compatible burning software, you can download the update from the Drivers & Software section of the Sony® eSupport Web site and then burn your own update disc on a DVD-R or DVD-RW disc. If you do not have the capability of downloading and burning your own firmware update disc, you can register the BD player online at http://www.productregistration.sony.com/ and a firmware disc will be sent to you automatically; the shipping and receiving time for the disc is approximately 7-10 days via U.S. mail.
