Yes you need to go to your blueray's website and download a update in order for the disk to work.

As it has new stuff that does not support you current plyers version.

    Does your blue ray have a telephone jack? If it does the manufacturer should be able to download the update right on the phoneline

I have a Sony BDP300 Blue Ray DVD Player. It plays non-blue ray dvd's fine. It plays a Celine Dion Blue Ray DVD fine. Tried to play an Netflex Blue Ray Amiela Earhart DVD and get picture but no sound. ...


I suggest that you install the latest firmware update to resolve the issue. Please click the following link to download the latest firmware update.
http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-download.pl?upd_id=6170&mdl=BDPS300
It is recommended to use CD -R disc to create the firmware update disc. I hope you're clear with downloading the update from support page. Once you download and save the file in the folder in the computer, you can double click the file to extract. You will be prompted to save the UPDATE_BDPS300_VER0550.ISO file in a folder. Most of the customers will be making mistake here after... We need to use a burning software which is capable to burning discs from ISO images. ISO image is nothing but a RAW format of burned image. I will give you the instructions to burn using Nero.. Steps will be almost same in all ISO capable software. Open installed nero software from computer. You may locate it under Start Menu programs. Go to File Menu (Some times you will get a wizard where you can select the Image Burning option or burn ISO option) Navigate the extracted .ISO file we saved in the computer. follow the onscreen instructions. Insert the disc when ever Nero asked to insert Hope this helps. If you need any assistance. Please get back to me. I will be more than happy to assist you. Thanks for understanding.

I need to upgrade my blu ray player - won't play new blu ray discs


If you are using the BRDVD there is only one update and it is a few months old. They are adding new security features to new Bluyray discs this month and all players out there need to be updated. The unfortunate side of the BRDVD is that Insignia is refusing to update the player although Funai(the comany that has made the player for them) has released a update that would work with it with little work by insignia.

To help get this player updated it would be good to go to the forums here and post that you still use this player. We got a update the first time so it should be possible to get another.

Good luck and enjoy this little player.

The player will not play new movies


There is no charge for the BRDVD firmware although Insignia has been bad about the updates. This play is made by Funai and has several sister models.

Insignia has only released one firmware update while Funai has continued to support the products and has plans to support it for a unspecified time to come with a firmware update that just came out on March 1st.

Here is a link to a support page for all the models by funai including the Insignia BRDVD:http://forum.blu-ray.com/blu-ray-players-recorders/48943-funai-bd-player-owners-thread-magnavox-sylvania-insignia-etc.html

Here is a link to ingnia where you can find this models main page as well as firmare updates and instructions telling you how to install them.

On a side note please go into the forums and look at the messages for updates on the disc problems and such. We are trying to convince Insignia to stick with their customers and update the player as Funai is so we can get some use out of what we paid for.

Hope I helped and enjoy your BRDVD.

Used once, played movie then next time it was looking for update. Even if your answer is no, it still wont play, just keeps on asking. Can I switch this off?


About 9 months ago I purchased an Acer Aspire. But until now I never used the blu-ray drive. When I first used it, the disc performed ok. But the very next time that I used it, it refused to play. A notice came up as below.
“A critical component of the player requires periodic updates. New movies could fail to play if the critical component is not updated promptly. Would you like to update now? [YES] or[ NO]”
Now, whenever either button is selected, the screen changes as though the disc is going to be played. But then up pops the notice again! This keeps on happening time after time! So I decided to update the program that runs movies etc.
In Acer Arcade Deluxe version [1.14 .6907] I did a live update. And then I tried a Blu-ray disc. The notice came up and I clicked on YES and Internet Explorer started up and was taken to the Cyberlink .com site. A notice came up with the link to update as needed. After the download I minimised Explorer and found the download ready to install. Eventually I tried the disc and it ran ok, with small skips all the way through the movie. I now probably need to look into the buffering of the disc. But at least it works now.
I hope this may be of use to others.

Pioneer DBP-51FD Blu-Ray


I bought mine four days ago and it would not pay the new James Bond Blue-Ray. The screen said your player needs an update. I downloaded the firmware, and it still did not work. I took the disc down to Best Buy and it played fine on an identical DBP 51-FD. Their tech came out with a replacement player and it played fine. Now, however, it will not play the DVD Happily Ever After 2, eve after the firmware update. Strangely enough, the other player played that DVD fine.

In other words, take it back and get another one.

I have three blue- ray disc which will not play. Have return these disc several times to merchant for exchnage with no success.


Your firmware seems to be an older version. Since the discs that you are nameing are asking for Blu-Ray 1.2 support.
Samsung has provided updated firmware to support these discs. Follow the instructions on the link.
