    It is a Sharp BD-HP21 Sharp Blue Ray player. I did not recieve the thumb drive from sharp, it is a regular one I use with my computer. If I cannot get the thumb drive to work, can I use a disc to upload the firmware?

Did Sharp send this to you ? If you have a computer plug the drive into it and explore it to see if there is anything on it. I received a blank one once. Make sure there is only one usb port to plug into, some have one under a cover or say service. With no model number it makes it hard to research.

    Did not see anything about using a disc in the install instructions. The zip drive should be blank before the update is loaded on it then, unzip the file and put the update file on a USB drive. Don't put the file in a folder, place it on the top level (root directory) of the USB drive. If you put the file in a folder the player wont find the update.

You'll need to plug in an external USB thumbdrive (or SD card if your unit accepts one) to watch this video.
Be sure to "initialize" the thumbdrive in the settings menu after you plug it in. Restart your movie and it should load properly after 10-15 seconds.

We are trying to play a blu-ray disc in our PS3 and it is telling us we need to preform a system software update to renew the encryption key? What do we need to do?

If your PS3 is connected online it should have the newest update already. In the event it's not. You want to go to sony playstation insert a USB thumbdrive into your computer. Download the newest update, insert thumbdrive into the USB of the PS3 under system settings select install update. It will take a few minutes then your PS3 is up to date.

How do i get a software upgrade for my tv

You will need a USB port or SD Card reader on the TV set in order to update the TV's Firmware. (note: some TV manufactures specify what types of memory are compatible with their TV sets i.e. magic gate, etc.)

Use the appropriate storage device for your TV set and go to:

Enter the model number in the search box. It will search for available software/firmware for your TV set. Download it and save it to your storage device.

Insert the storage device into the TV set. If the software/firmware update screen does not come up automatically, select update software/firmware from the TV's menu.

I hope this helps.

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"

Mp3 wont plug into com and connect :(

Once an MP3 is not recognized by the computer, the problem has something to do with the memory storage.

Reformatting the memory storage will not do any help, because the program would only be deleted. And the only way to reload the program is via the MP3 manufacturer itself.

I would suggest for you to contact the manufacturer and have them replace the memory and reprogram the device. They might upgrade the firmware of it.

Replacing the memory should not cost you too much.

Have a good day!

Ipod ready/USB problem

The USB port is to be used with USB mass storage devices like flash drives, thumbdrive or external hard drives. The IPod's USB connection is not seen as a mass storage device it is proprietary. You need the iPod connection kit, part number KS-PD100 to connect your iPod to the deck.
