Unable to play BD-R or BD-RE discs in the Blu-ray Disc® (BD) player.
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.

Go to sharps website and download updated firmware version for your model, then transfer the file to the blu ray using a usb mass storage device. I had to do that to mine it would not play new blu rays and i just bought the darn thing should've come updated. Good luck!

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.
