    I have the same problem and cannot find the firmware update for this model anywhere. What's worse, we do not even have a registered dealer anywhere near us according to Samsung's website.

I know dvd player can not play Blu-ray but is not the Samsung dvd hd870 different. It reads 1080i.


That refers to the video output - your player is capable of upscaling: it transforms, without changing the quality of the image itself, the resolution from SD (480i) to HD (1080i).

Samsung Blu Ray 1500 model wont play any new discs


If you tried firmware update and it doesn't work and its less than a year from the date of purchased call Samsung customer service and claim for warranty . Panasonic has the same issue without explanation.

When a disc is loaded, it reads no disc, and disc cannot be played.


It is very possible that the lens motor has burnt out. Sometimes the capacitors on the motherborard short out causing the gear timing to go out..

The only thing you can do to fix this is to take the cover off. Get cotton swab and dip it rubbing alcohol and clean the glass laser eye with it.

SAMSUNG DVD R120 error EC:0207


I had exactly the same problem -- error message of "This disc can be neither played nor recorded. Please check the disk [EC:0207]" after the machine had been working fine for a year. I downloaded the latest firmware from the Samsung website, burned it to a CD-R disk (took three tries until the DVD Recorder recognized the disk -- worked when I used Rocio CD Creater software), then loaded the firmware updates to the DVD Recorder. On the Samsung website you can retrive the firmware update instructions as well. I had to perform the firmware upgrade several times until it successfully updated both the system firmware as well as the disk firmware. After successfully updating both, the Recorder now recognizes the DVD-R disks and I was able to resume recording. I have however, noted some choppiness with the playback of the newly recorded disks. Other than that, the firmware upgrade successfully resolved the problem.
