Updating firmware on blu ray

To avoid this from happening, you need keep your players firmware up to date.

How-to With older players, there are usually two ways to upgrade the firmware: you download a file from the company website, then copy that to a USB flash drive, or burn it on a CD or DVD.

How long they do this for, and how often, varies quite a bit.

One of the major reasons for firmware updates, though, is copy protection.

With DVD, the copy protection scheme was compromised shortly after release.

This let people rip bit-perfect copies of their DVD discs and distribute them online.

With Blu-ray, they wanted to prevent this and introduced more extensive copy protection.

Oppo has done this well in the past, adding support for network streaming of audio and video, as well as support for additional streaming formats.

It also allows Netflix and other streaming companies to update their capabilities and have Blu-ray players take advantage of it.

Sometimes, manufacturers just stop supporting their products, even models only a few years old. Blu-ray players have firmware updates for a variety of reasons.

Sometimes it’s to fix bugs/problems in the players themselves.

Disk only seems able to do FAT32, so I had to drop into the shell and use assigns the label “FIRMWARE” to the new filesystem.
