Have you updated the firmware on it? I had a similar problem with a Sony blu-ray player and I had to download an update and burn it on to a CD then allow the CD to update the blu-ray player. What's the model number of your player, I may be able to get a link to the update for you.

I had the same problem. You HAVE TO WAIT 5 minutes after you insert the firmware update disc and BEFORE you press enter on the YES or NO option for updating the firmware.

Disable BD-Live. I have an LG so I don't know the Samsung's setup menu, but you can probably find BD-Live settings in the network section of the menu.
BD-Live is a "feature" that uses your player's internet connection to download new content (e.g. up-to-date movie trailers) every time you insert the disk. While this is pretty cool in theory, it causes problems when (a) you have an internet connection but (b) for some reason the disk isn't able to connect to the server it's looking for.
If you're using an ethernet cable you can essentially accomplish the same thing by disconnecting it from your player before you load the disk. Then the disk will not find an internet connection and won't try to perform the BD-Live functions, which should enable the film to load almost right away.
I disabled BD-Live and that has stopped all such issues (also a problem with Date Night for me). I don't want my moves phoning home every time I get something from Netflix. Maybe some day BD-Live will be cool but for now it's more trouble than it's worth, it seems.
I hope this helps you. Good luck.

Testimonial: "Mate you were dead on, I had BD LIVE set to "Allow - Valid only". The combined might of Samsung service, and my local repair agent, had no idea!"
