SOURCE: Blu-ray disc
In order to play Blu-Ray discs, you must unfortunately own a Blu-Ray player. Neither HD-DVD players nor Progressive Scan/Upconvert DVD players are capable of playing the discs, and standard DVD players are not able to recognize information on the discs due to how they are constructed.
Please keep in mind that there are always a number of options available to you, should you consider purchasing a Blu-Ray player. While the average asking price with many retailers for stand-alone Blu-Ray players is between $300.00 and $500.00, you can typically obtain an internal Blu-Ray drive for your computer for considerably less. Additionally, the Playstation 3 may also be a viable alternative - the current 40GB model not only plays Blu-Ray discs, but also has the added perk of being a video game console for around the same price as the average stand-alone Blu-Ray player.
Hope this helps you out.

You will need the following:
1) Internet connection
2) Wired router
3) long enough ethernet cable to reach from your blue ray player to the router.
Eject any disks and turn off the blu-ray player by unplugging it.
Attach the ethernet cable to the router and the other end to the ethernet port on the back of the blu-ray player.
Turn on the blu-ray player and wait for it to load all the way.
Using the remote, arrow over to the left to "Setup", the up to "Network Update".
After the unit updates and restarts, repeat until it tells you "Already Updated".
That should help you play the newer movies, and even some of the older ones.

You should try this: go to www.sonystyle.com then click on "support" then click on "software/drivers" then enter your model number in the box and follow the rest of the instructions to download and install/update the firmware in your BluRay player, this may fix the problem and it may not but give it a try, if this doesn't fix it contact Sony's tech line and they will help you.
Good Luck !

The Player will not play the Blu-ray discs other than Region C.
This is because all the Blu-ray/DVD Players are designed such way that it will play only the discs that are manufactured and sold in the same country where the Player is manufactured.
You can play the discs that are "Region ALL".
However, you may try copying the content of the Region A/B Blu-ray discs to a Computer then create a video Blu-ray disc to check whether you can play them in the BDPS370.

SOURCE: will play dvd's fine, but
You have a Laser Pickup Assembly problem, The blue ray disc require higher precision and velocity to show the higher resolution that is demanded when it plays. One possible solution, and it is a long shot, clean the laser pickup lens with a Q-Tip and rubbing alcohol failing that, only choice replace the assembly or buy another machine.
