Why does my blu ray player need to be updated?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I watched a movie on my samsung blu ray player a few days ago with no problems. But I tried to watch the same disc again today and it now says I need to update my player to play the disc. Why is that?

I can understand needing to update the player every now and then if something new comes out, but I have already watched this very disc with no problems. The player is also not connected to a network so the player can't know that there is a new update anyway can it?

Very confused! Thanks for any help!

Usually its to enable the extra contents on the disc (commentary while you watch, internet sharing, other stuff). I'm also confused why it decided it wanted to update after you had already watched it confused.gif

I guess just update it? redface.gif

That's odd. Maybe it was programmed to want to updated every so many months or a set date? I've gotten the same thing, but with Power DVD
needing to update to play a movie I've already watched.

If youre not already familiar with firmware updates that is what is going on. If your player isn't connected to a network then it's the disk signalling that it has new content that needs a more recent firmware.

But I've already watched the disc, how has it suddenly realized it needs an update? I tried two other blu rays and they started fine

Have you ever had it hooked to a network? If so, maybe it takes awhile for updates to install and register. Kinda like windows updates...

Nope we don't have the wireless dongle for it and there's no wired connections in the room.

I'm so confused... The disc has been played multiple times but now it needs an update, but other discs don't...

Well in that case I'm confused too. As Chris Farley said, "Hmm. That's a mystery."
