Sony S-300 My Sony BDP-S300 blu-ray player will load disc, picture and sound perfect. but when I hit play the player shuts down and restarts. The funny thing is that movie "The golden compas" plays perfectly and movie "Wanted" or "Matrix" restart after I push to play the movie from the list menu.

    I have the exact same problem. It is only with some Blueray Discs, including "Wanted." I went ahead and bought a copy of "Wanted" and this did not solve the problem.

    Same Problem here...And the SAME movie!!!!!!! "Wanted"

    this is the first Blue ray movie I have tried.And after waiting for a eternity for it to load (about as fast as a 1980's computer). I was ready to get rid of it. Please post if the update fixes it. Thanks!!

    I have a slightly different varient to the problem. Syptoms exactly the same, insert disk, starts loading then shuts down totally. However, when trying to install the upgrade the player tells me that it can't read the disk - all very frustrating.... Help?!

I had same problem, and fixed it just as per URL link from Wizz.
Apart from following the Sony methodology by the letter:- a couple of things to note:-
1) Make sure you appreciate the difference between a data disk and a burn image. To copy the ISO file you need an image copy of the file, the disk will also need to be "fixated", this is a normal function of most disk burning software but may be prompted as a tick list before you burn the image.
I downloaded burn epress from and it worked fine

2) I got a "No DWLD 09" error after I had put the disk into the player. I tried it several times but still got the error. I solved it by changing CDR disk manufacturer. I was using Maxwell CDR-80's and when I changed to a JVC it worked fine.

Download firmware 4.4 from Sony support

    The instructions are on the Web page

    But basically you download the update which is an ISO image of a CD. Burn a CD using Nero for Example and then put the CD into the player. The player will detect it his a firmware update and install it automatically. I did this today and it took about 10 Min.

I am not sure about the Sony BDP-S300 Blu-Ray Disc Player: But the Samsung BD-P1000 Blu-Ray Disc Player requires HDMI cable
to give the best resolution (1080p) possible that the TV set is able
to support. Hope this helps.
