    Hello,



    I have the same problem. I bought 21 and tried to play on my Sony BDP-S300 and it freezes also. In fact, I bought it (exchanged it) 3 times thinking it was the Blu Ray Disc. But now that you mentioned it too, I'm wondering if there is a solution.

Dear hoagie69,

I found out on the internet that there is a BDP-S300 Firmware Update last modified on 6/20/2008.

It requires downloading a file and burning it on to a CD-R. Then you would load it into your Blu-Ray Disc Player to upgrade the version you currently have.

If you are successful in updating, your 21 Blu-Ray Disc should work. It finally worked for me.

The link you will need to go to in order to download the file for the update is:

Hope this helps you. Boy, am I glad that I can finally watch the 21 movie!

It freezes when playing a blueray movie. it seems


The most likely cause of your frustration with the BDP-S350 is that your player's firmware is not the most current. Most often, the firmware problem is JAVA related and will not let the menus load at all, but freezing during playback has also been reportedly fixed with the firmware upgrade.

The solution is to go to sony's website, download the firmware upgrade, burn it to a disc and then load the disc into the player to fix it.

I hope that helps.

Blu-ray disc not playing movies


Try resetting the machine. Take the movie out, close the tray, press and hold both the stop and power buttons simultaneously until the machine shuts down completely... then turn it on. It will ask you for the first time settings again... beware that mine stated like that and the freezing movies until "No Disk" came up and now nothing will be read. I an taking it to Sears for an exchange (hopefully). I am disappointed with the performance so far. It's a SONY ****!

Blu ray will not play some rented blu ray rented movies


I had the same problem with some Netflix Blu-Ray rented DVDs, and here's what fixed it:

(1): Download and burn the latest firmware (version 4.50) from Sony: http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-download.pl?upd_id=4320&mdl=BDPS300

Follow their procedure carefully. For example, do NOT burn it to a CD-RW, only a CD-R. The downloaded file is an ISO file that you can burn with Nero Burning ROM's "burn image" menu item as well as a wide variety of freeware tools.

(2): AFTER the firmware has been updated, perform the normal reset procedure: Power it on, press the front panel STOP button (the square icon) and press the power button at the same time.

Good luck!

You may need to check for updates for your particular blu-ray player from the manufacturer's website... many companies are sending out patches you need to download to play more current movies... check it out, that may be all you need...

Player suddenly freezes


Try running a dvd cleaner through it first, before trying anything else (the type that looks like a DVD with a brush underneath).

The regular DVD might have been a fluke (scratches, rental?, burned dvd?)

Was there anything special about the new Blu-Ray Disc - what was the tile? On certain titles, you may need the firmware upgrade found at:
