Do you use a Mac? I had this same trouble. I use a Apple computer, Mac OS X. The USB flash card I was using had been formatted for the MAC OS. I just used the disk utility to reformat the flash card for MS DOS. Then it worked ok.

How do i hook up my BD-P1500 TO NETFLIX


Here is a video instruction on how to hook up the P1600 model to Net Flix.

A firmware update may be required to get NetFlix on the P1500 model.

Otherwise, I have seen little information on the P1500 supporting NetFlix.
Please give feedback for this answer, thanks.

Unable to play new SALT film blue-ray on my BD-P1500 and can not seem to fix it


The player needs a firmware update. Your issue is a direct result of this. Go to the Samsung website to access the appropriate download or simply connect your player to your modem with an ethernet cable (TV needs to remain connected to player for menu navigation) and update firmware.

This will solve your problem!

Hope I helped!

I can't get my BD 1500 to connect to the web to update my firmware. I've had Samsung send me the updates on a disk, but the player can't read the disks, it says loading and then ejects the disk. I guess...


I've used the USB method and it's never failed me, but make sure you read the instructions re NO DISK in the machine, power off, insert USB, power up, etc.

Failing that I have run a cat 5 (ethernet) cable and plugged it into the back so it was directly network connected. You do need to go into the setup / network setup menu of the player and tell it what your internet DNS server numbers are. If you're not sure of these, or it's starting to sound scary, maybe stick with the USB method.

I want to connect a wireless internet to my samsung blu ray BD P1500, how shoudl I do?


Unfortunately, this player has to use a wired network. (The Samsung WIS09 Wireless USB Adaptor is not compatible with the BD-P1500; it is compatible with the P1600.) Most wireless routers have a 4-port switch built in. If you can position your router in a place where the computers in your network can find the signal but gives you an easy wire run, do so with RJ-45 Cat5e or Cat 6 cable. Otherwise, you will need to run cable in the walls, in an attic or in a basement/crawlspace or use a second unit (wireless router (that can work as a switch), wireless switch or bridge with RJ-45 ports) to connect the TV to the primary router. Running cables will depend on your home, this can be easy or hard.

I hope this helps.

(In general I prefer wired networks. There is much less trouble-shooting for signal loss. Adding an extra switch adds to the issue.)

I still can't play my Avatar Blu-Ray disk, I've already updated my Samsung BD-P1500 to the latest firmware v2.7 dated 22/3/10. What now?


Disable BD-Live. I have an LG so I don't know the Samsung's setup menu, but you can probably find BD-Live settings in the network section of the menu.
BD-Live is a "feature" that uses your player's internet connection to download new content (e.g. up-to-date movie trailers) every time you insert the disk. While this is pretty cool in theory, it causes problems when (a) you have an internet connection but (b) for some reason the disk isn't able to connect to the server it's looking for.
If you're using an ethernet cable you can essentially accomplish the same thing by disconnecting it from your player before you load the disk. Then the disk will not find an internet connection and won't try to perform the BD-Live functions, which should enable the film to load almost right away.
I disabled BD-Live and that has stopped all such issues (also a problem with Date Night for me). I don't want my moves phoning home every time I get something from Netflix. Maybe some day BD-Live will be cool but for now it's more trouble than it's worth, it seems.
I hope this helps you. Good luck.

go to the samsung website, and navigate to the BD-1500 page. You will see a support tab, which has your download on it. I would try the CD based download first.
Download the file, unzip it, and burn it onto a CD. Then, with the unit off, and unplugged, plug it in, open the drawer and insert the disk. Close the drawer and see if it will read the new files. If not, then try the same procedure on the USB option, though I have had less luck with that.

If you cannot get it from there, contact Samsung

Firmware download for MAC


hey same problem here, but I just downloaded the CD version anyways... then dropped the .RUF file onto my desktop, selected it, burnt it to a CD-R (RW will also work) and popped it into the BD-P1500, so far it seems to be running along steadily in the update process... hope this solves your problem.
