Question about GoVideo DV2130 DVD Player/VCR

1 Answer

DV2130 Firmware upgrade.

I downloaded and burnt to CD the firmware upgrade
When I insert the CD w/ upgrade I get the message
"firmware upgrade"
old ver 2.030827.02GVI
new ver 3.040421.02GVI
press enter.
I press enter, get the message "loading" an it just sits there.
I have walked away an let it alone for over and hour.
When I come back nothing has changed, same message.
The Customer service # 1-800-736-7679 no longer works.
Any ideas?
Does this upgrade really help, if you can get it to work?
Or should I just let well enough alone.

Gets stuck displayong BD-ROM and won't play

Your Blu-Ray player needs a firmware update from Sony. Here is a link to the page to download the firmware

You will need to download the firmware and burn the files to a cd-rom disc. First you double click on the downloaded file to extract the files to a folder. Then you will need to use the "burn image" setting in your cd burning software on your computer and burn those files to a cd-r disc. Then when you insert the disc into the Blu-Ray player it will start the update process. DO NOT DISTURB the player when the upgrade is happening and it usually takes about 30 minutes. Periodic upgrades will be needed with the player to be compatible with the new format of Blu-Ray discs. The full instructions are on the web page.

Firmware update for Element Blu-ray player

Sorry to bring up an old thread but I couldn't solve the problem with these solutions. I tried a DVD, I tried 3 CD's burned from 2 different computers, I waited for 5 minutes, I waited for 5 hours. Nothing worked. So I used my work computer that is running XP and it worked perfectly. So if you are burning the disk from a vista computer I don't think it will work.

SAMSUNG DVD R120 error EC:0207

I had exactly the same problem -- error message of "This disc can be neither played nor recorded. Please check the disk [EC:0207]" after the machine had been working fine for a year. I downloaded the latest firmware from the Samsung website, burned it to a CD-R disk (took three tries until the DVD Recorder recognized the disk -- worked when I used Rocio CD Creater software), then loaded the firmware updates to the DVD Recorder. On the Samsung website you can retrive the firmware update instructions as well. I had to perform the firmware upgrade several times until it successfully updated both the system firmware as well as the disk firmware. After successfully updating both, the Recorder now recognizes the DVD-R disks and I was able to resume recording. I have however, noted some choppiness with the playback of the newly recorded disks. Other than that, the firmware upgrade successfully resolved the problem.
