You need to update the firmware. You also need to know the model number of your bd player. Aquos is not enough.
Firmware is available here:

Blue ray player will not play copy of Avatar film, error report says it requires an upgrade, where do I find upgrade?


an upgrade or an update? If it needs an update then it probably has an ethernet port for you to hook it up to your router and it should download the update and install it.

Every time I play Avatar in my samsung blu ray player bd-p1000 the screen on the dvd player says interactive but then it starts playing the opening credits and it wont go into menu mode, I can't do...


We have finally managed to get avatar to play!!!!! We had the same problem. Frustrating I know - but after returning the DVD back to the shop three times, trying updating previously, then waiting for another update from Samsung from Sept (they have not provided a further update) - we are feeling jubilant!

We copied the firmware to a CD disc once again. It did not initally look as if it was loading but if you wait you are asked if you if you want to upgrade eventually. Once you affirm - it takes a good five to ten minutes to process the firmware/ upgrade. It tells you when it has completed. We discovered by chance that you need to then switch off the player and switch back on again for the update to become functional.

Initally we still could not get AVATAR to load as far as the menu screen. We tried newer Blue Ray DVDs purchased December that previously would not play - and now do! To get AVATAR to play we switched off & on the blue ray player with the disc still loaded a couple of times and each time we got a little further towards the functioning menu screen.

A lot of messing around, so be sure you have the time available to persevere!

Blue ray won't play Avatar?


There is a firmware update for the BD-HP22. I had the same problem with Avatar but after I installed the firmware update, it loaded and ran smooth. Use the USB flash drive that came with the player or any other usb flash drive to load the firmware update. Check the link below for instructions and update file from Sharp's website.

Playing Avatar Sharp Blue ray requires an update


Not sure if this is a question, but the answer is YES in order to watch Avatar on a Blu ray player without ethernet connection requires a firmware disc to download latest firmware.

Will not play blue ray disc


Hi

All u need to do is to visit the manufacturer website,you will see a link "download driver upgrade". Download this upgrade and store it in a flash (if your player has a usb port) or just burn it on an empty CD.

Insert the CD or flash drive into your player,the system recognizes the upgrade and automatically installs it..and you are good to go

Good luck

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.
