CD Firmware update

Recently downloaded the firmware updated for Samsung BD-P1200 Blue Ray player. Burned an image to cd. Followed the instructions to do cd update. But the player never shut down and now on power up .....the message load appears and you can not open cd tray to make another attempt at update or play a DVD. Is there a way to bootstrap the player and reload the default firmware from an eprom or is the unit now rendered useless. Have a lot of experience doing firmware updates and this is a first. Tried to update to ver 2 firmware update. Thanks for any assistance you can provide.

Re: CD Firmware update

I would strongly recomend that you put the unit under the rear tires of a large truck and back over it, that should take care of the problem.

It won't play salt blu ray movie? why

Download and manually update the firmware to version 2.4 for the BD-P1400 from the Samsung site. Burn the image (ISO) to a CD or CD-RW. It will take 20 minutes to do the update. The internet update will not fix the problem. It fixed the problem for me.

I have a BD-P1200 that has never been upgraded, how do I do that?

If it ain't broke,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
as they say, as blue ray is still very new, is there an upgrade???
If there is you need to get a download from Samsung, burn to a disc, and load it into your player. But if it goes wrong, as I know it can, you may as well throw the player out.
So if it's working ok, leave it so.

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.

Samsung bd-p1200 won't play new "quantum of solace"

I too had this problem with Qauntum of Solace, I could get past the teasers and the warnings but when it gets to the main menu I select PLAY and it just stops at 00:00. The firmware upgrade fixed it! However I had to make a CD because the LAN method said I already had the latest version. I downloaded Ver 2.5 from Samsung support site - (
Then I needed to get Nero Burning ROM software (windows version) to burn an IMAGE of the .ISO file (I use a Mac and just burning the file onto a CD didn't work) You have to follow these instructions to the letter - ( )
Finally the player recognized the firmware and did the upgrade to 081119_T22F_0924.07_XAA
Voila, QoS now plays without a hitch.

Blue ray player wont play blue ray ''Kung Fu Panda'' disc.

i fixed this exactly as previous posted solutions, however a couple of points.
a) recordable CDs work if you don't have a DVD burner.
b) I didn't have a CD burner that would do an "image burn", I downloaded a free copy of "Express Burn" and that worked fine. The disk needs to be "finalised" or "fixated", it should do this automatically, or it may be a tick box selection.
c) I got a "No DWLD 09" when I put the disk into the player. I found this was an incompatibility with the CD-R (Maxwell) I was using. I changed to JVC and it worked fine.
