SOURCE: blue ray player wont play blue ray ''Kung Fu Panda'' disc.

Unable to play BD-R or BD-RE discs in the Blu-ray Disc® (BD) player. Solution
sp.gif sp.gif 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.
NOTES:

  • The firmware upgrade does not support BD-R and BD-RE discs recorded in the BDAV format.
  • Disc may not be played due to inadequate recording capability of the recording device.
  • Disc may not be played due to a disc being in poor condition.

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.

My ps3 iant reading games or blu ray discs how can i fix this myself?


I've been told that Blue Ray movies don't work on PS3 unless you use an HDMI cable; but I haven't tested that. Also, some Blue-ray on PS3 load as movies, some load as games depending on the content. So check the automatic play feature, see if you can select the BD from the video section. On your Xross media bar, go to videos and see if there is a blue disc (BD-rom), click X.

Also make sure that the movie is actually blue-ray. Some old HD movies are sold off on eBay, etc as Blue ray when they aren't. Check it on Blueray.com, if the movie isn't listed it may be HD only.

Surround sound for Blu Ray on older Sony receiver


Hello, it sounds to me like the receiver doesn't support the sound format being sent from the blu-ray player. This is because the blu-ray disc would have HD encoded sound such as DTS HD Master Audio or Dolby True HD. Most receivers have not been fitted with these sound formats untill quite recently. The reason for the menu sound playing correctly would be for the PCM (Pulse-code Modulation) which sends simple two channel digital sound supported by all digital receivers. It may be possible to use Dolby Pro Logic or similar formats to give a surround feel, but the only way to get true surround sound in this way would be decode the sound externally and input it through several phono cables into the multichannel input, however blu-ray sound comes in 7.1 so the receiver would need to be able to accept this to get the full effect. If it is possible, see if the blu-ray player will allow downsampling to a surround sound format that your receiver can accept such as Dolby Digital or DTS. Hope this helps.
