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.

I upgraded the unit on Dec. 24th and I now have the same problem. My solution is to take it to your local recycling plant and don't buy another Samsung player. I contacted support and because the unit is out of warranty they can't (will not) do anything. I tried reapplying the firmware via the USB and it didn't work. Anyone have a way to reset the firmware to the factory version?
The Samsung blu-ray players need constant firmware updating. It is best to plug an ethernet cable from your router into the back end of the Samsung ( or get a wireless LAN ). I have multiple units that need updating so I bought a wireless ethernet bridge. The unit will tell you when a firmware update is needed and you then "accept" it through your remote. If you don't want to do this, then you will have to do it through the USB. That means you go to the Samsung website, find your player then look for downloads. Download to USB then xfer to the Samsung. Good luck
Sony releases new firmware for the bdp-s350 ever so often to let it play newer movies. The last one can be downloaded from here firmware. Be sure to contact Sony with any problems so they can work on it for the next firmware. They are pretty good about updates as long as we let them know of any problems we are having.
If you are continuing to have problems let me know by sending me a message in the comments and I will go from there. I will get back to you as soon as possible.
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.
went to samsung web site and aquired firmware update for a thumbdrive install [USB on back of BD-P1500] This seemed to work and part of the update from previous early firmware versions was to "improve the ability to properly display all DVD types"
it seems that samsung is posting it's firm updates online @ samsung.com i had same problem with my BD-UP5000 its connected to the internet when i go to the menue to update on the bluray player it said i had the latest update went online and found a new firmware on there web site, check samsung web site
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.
