Sony BDP-S300 firmware problem?

I have a Sony BDP-S300 blue ray player. I went to watch Wanted and when it got to just after the warnings, the player shuts down and after about 30 second it starts back up and reloads again. Every time it gets just past the warnings and goes to start the movie, it does the exact same thing. I went and downloaded the Firmware update onto a CD-R disc, but when placed into the player it comes up with a "Cannot read disc". I have changed the setting to CD before trying the disc. Is there a fix or should I just buy another player?

DO NOT buy another player.

I work in an electronics store. All you need is a firmware update for your player. You can do this by going to sony's website and burning the appropriate files to a dvd. when this is done correctly, the player will recognize the disc and complete its updates as required. I have done this for several customers already.

Have purchased Terminator Salvation and 2012 on bluray, both Sony discs, they load and go to menu screen, however the icons to allow you to play or scene select etc do not appear, menu just plays over and...


Most likely you need to 'flash' (update) your BDP-S300's firmware. I had the same issue while trying to play AVTR in my BDP-S300. I downloaded Sony's latest firmware update, burned it to disc and popped the disc into the player... It takes 5-10 minutes for the 'flashing' to take place. AVTR now works in my player... Had to do this with one other Blu-ray movie about 18 months ago also.

Download the latest firmware version for the BDP-S300 here...

Recommended blue ray players??


The firmware upgrade issue for blu-ray players is one that is causing alot of consumers and enthusiasts alot of headaches. But upgrading firmware is not going to go away.

Therefore, I would have to advise that for ease of use, choose one that has an option to connect to the network directly, such as Sony's BDP-S350. A network connected device will find the firmware upgrades itself so you don't have to find it and burn it and load it, etc.

Sony BDP-S300 keeps skipping Blu-ray discs and then say's can't read disc.


The most common problem with blu-ray discs in blu-ray players like the BDP-S300 seems to be related to firmware issues. You can download the latest firmware from the Sony website here. Once burned to a disc on your computer you load the disc into the blu-ray player to update it.

I hope that helps.

Now my copy of Hancock that did not work works fine.. The simple answer is Update your Firmware
