When you load the CD-R in the player, it will read the file and ask you confirm the update.
double-checking the country/region of the firmware. I mainly use a Sony Playstation 3 for testing projects.
The PS3 seems to get a new firmware update about every 8 weeks or so.
The most recent update gave us new BD-Live support that allows access the web from the video or menu for additional content.
It really does not make a difference when you purchased the player – If your BD-R or BD-RE disc will not play after you’ve burned it and the firmware has not been updated, then you more than likely need to do a firmware update.
I have provided a few links to get you started but I highly suggest doing a on your Blu-ray player model.
I have a broadband connection and it shouldn't be taking this long.
