    Click on the "Start" button and then type "Update" into the search box. Click on "Windows Update" in the box that appears. Click on "Check for updates" and wait for the updater to scan your system. Click on the firmware update, if there is one. If your DVD player's firmware is up-to-date on the right firmware, there will not be an update. Click "Install Updates" if you have an update available to you and then click "Finish" when it is complete. Restart your computer.

Saw 3d only plays in 2d ,is the lg bd370 capable of suporting 3d?


Simple answer: no. It uses HDMI 1.3 which has insufficient bandwidth for 3D.

There's no firmware upgrade to HDMI 1.4 which would enable 3D either, so your only fix is to upgrade the player or to contact LG Customer Support in your country to ask whether they are planning to release a firmware upgrade. Given that your machine is an older, basic, and obsolete model it's unlikely to have the required hardware to cope with 3D though.

I hope that you've found my answer to be of use, if so then please take a moment to rate my reply.

Hello,

I believe the disk that they are trying to sell you is the offline firmware update disk you can download the firmware update from here

Every time I play Avatar in my samsung blu ray player bd-p1000 the screen on the dvd player says interactive but then it starts playing the opening credits and it wont go into menu mode, I can't do...


We have finally managed to get avatar to play!!!!! We had the same problem. Frustrating I know - but after returning the DVD back to the shop three times, trying updating previously, then waiting for another update from Samsung from Sept (they have not provided a further update) - we are feeling jubilant!

We copied the firmware to a CD disc once again. It did not initally look as if it was loading but if you wait you are asked if you if you want to upgrade eventually. Once you affirm - it takes a good five to ten minutes to process the firmware/ upgrade. It tells you when it has completed. We discovered by chance that you need to then switch off the player and switch back on again for the update to become functional.

Initally we still could not get AVATAR to load as far as the menu screen. We tried newer Blue Ray DVDs purchased December that previously would not play - and now do! To get AVATAR to play we switched off & on the blue ray player with the disc still loaded a couple of times and each time we got a little further towards the functioning menu screen.

A lot of messing around, so be sure you have the time available to persevere!

For avatar how fix samsung bd c5500c blu-ray


If this is a Blu Ray Disk then your unit needs a firmware upgrade to be able to play the new Blu ray format. Contact Samsung for the upgrade file, burn to a DVD and run. The update will allow your unit play the new BR Format.

Element EDBCO11 + Avatar = problem


Avatar bluray disc uses some super-new technique for copy-protection, which many players don't support yet. If you already upgraded to the latest firmware, you can only contact your dealer and ask them - or wait for even newer firmware.

When I tryed to play Avatar the screen said I needed a firmware upgrade. What is this?


The dvd player is actually a computer and the firmware is its equivalent of Windows Media Player - it needs to be upgraded to play the latest disks. You can get it and the instructions on how to install it from here

I can't get my blue ray player to play Avatar Blue Ray dvd. I loaded the disc and the player shows 0.00.00.00 but won't advance. I pressed play and play showed on the player then menu appeared. Menu still...


Like Kelt67 said a firmware is needed....Avatar holds a lot of memory on the blu ray disc as that's one reason there are no trailers just strictly the movie and that's it on the blu ray....Avatar works perfectly fine in my PS3 but then my fiance tried watching on a regular Sony blu ray player and it just sits and loads forever....needs a firmware upgrade need to pop the firmware disc in and download by contacting your blu ray manufacture if no ethernet port on your blu ray player.
