Go into the setup menu for your player and disable BD-Live.
On my player I have three options: Permitted, Partially Permitted (the default), and Prohibited.
Beginning with the Avatar disk (and since with Date Night) I have extremely long load times and Date Night wouldn't work at all.
BD-Live uses your player's internet connection to communicate with a server to download updated content to your system (e.g. up-to-date movie trailers).
Unfortunately, it seems that this is relatively new and sometimes poorly thought out. At least in my case, the default setting of Partially Permitted doesn't play well with these disks. Instead of trying to make their connection and giving up after 10 seconds or so, they just try to connect forever. To the end user (you and me) that looks like the disk won't play and/or something is broken. In fact, it's working the way the disk was programmed to work, it's just that nobody programmed what to do if there is an interned connection but there is a problem connecting to a server.
So fiddle around with your BD-Live settings. Personally, I just want to watch my dang movies. I don't want them phoning home every time I get something from Netflix. I disabled BD-Live and haven't had problems since. Maybe one day this will be a valuable service but for now it's just a pain.
I hope this helps. Good luck.

I have the latest software version for the BDPBX2 11.4.008 when I try to play the Avatar Bluray DVD I get the following message: if you experience problems playing back this DVD go to...


I have Avatar Blu-ray movie and it plays on my BDP-BX2 11.4.006 version. Take it back and get it exchanged. Try new one. May have to go to another store since the same shipments (bulk) that are at your store are ALL the same. I have done this 4 times with 4 different movies and 2 of them worked. I'm getting the .008 update but, I'm starting to think the Blu-ray disc are the problem since I have one that is made in Mexico??? I don't think they are all being made correctly. Too Cheap!

The new avatar blu.ray dont work


If the firmware update still doesn't work, ensure you have a USB key connected to your player. I have the BDP-S350 and Avatar wouldn't work until I connected a USB drive to it. Ensure it is formatted correctly-anything new should work fine.

For avatar how fix samsung bd c5500c blu-ray


If this is a Blu Ray Disk then your unit needs a firmware upgrade to be able to play the new Blu ray format. Contact Samsung for the upgrade file, burn to a DVD and run. The update will allow your unit play the new BR Format.

Element EDBCO11 + Avatar = problem


Avatar bluray disc uses some super-new technique for copy-protection, which many players don't support yet. If you already upgraded to the latest firmware, you can only contact your dealer and ask them - or wait for even newer firmware.

I can't get my blue ray player to play Avatar Blue Ray dvd. I loaded the disc and the player shows 0.00.00.00 but won't advance. I pressed play and play showed on the player then menu appeared. Menu still...


Like Kelt67 said a firmware is needed....Avatar holds a lot of memory on the blu ray disc as that's one reason there are no trailers just strictly the movie and that's it on the blu ray....Avatar works perfectly fine in my PS3 but then my fiance tried watching on a regular Sony blu ray player and it just sits and loads forever....needs a firmware upgrade need to pop the firmware disc in and download by contacting your blu ray manufacture if no ethernet port on your blu ray player.
