Question about Samsung BD-P1500 Blu-Ray Player
You may have to apply an update. There's a key used to decrypt the content on Blueray discs that changes from time to time in an attempt to thwart piracy. Updating involves visiting the manufacturer's(Samsung) website, downloading the update onto a USB stick, and starting the player with the USB stick inserted.

Unable to play BD-R or BD-RE discs in the Blu-ray Disc® (BD) player.
The Blu-ray Disc® (BD) player does not support BD-R and BD-RE discs right out of the box. However, a free firmware update is available that will provide compatibility with BD-R and BD-RE discs recorded in the BDMV format.
If your computer is equipped with a DVD burner and compatible burning software, you can download the update from the Drivers & Software section of the Sony® eSupport Web site and then burn your own update disc on a DVD-R or DVD-RW disc. If you do not have the capability of downloading and burning your own firmware update disc, you can register the BD player online at http://www.productregistration.sony.com/ and a firmware disc will be sent to you automatically; the shipping and receiving time for the disc is approximately 7-10 days via U.S. mail.

I had the same problem with mine and took a chance. it would read dvds but not blu-ray disc. i have done this procedure before with a regular dvd player so i tried it with my blu-ray and it worked. First you must open the blu-ray and take the blu-ray/dvd drive out open it up expose the lazer eye reader (make sure the blu-ray player is unpluged) and clean the eye with cotton swab diped in rubing alcohol.i would recommend using a flashlight when doing so. do this lightly and dry the eyes with the other side of the swab. you will see the difference once you clean it. I opened mine up after cleaning it with a dvd cleaner and the eye was still dirty. the eyes had a light film on it. I seen this on my dvd players that i have cleaned before. the film was enough to make the player not read the bul-ray disc. do not try this if you are not comfortable taking stuff apart and putting it back togetter. i hope this fixes your problem.
