Won't play some blu-ray and DVD discs.
on March 24, 2015
I was happy to receive this Korean product. I had done some research and found that Samsung had input into Blu-Ray device protocol. In spite of this some of the Blu-ray discs and DVD's that I have will not play. The reason I got this is that my Blu-ray drive on my computer won't play some discs. I got tired of trying to find and download new CODEC's to view Blu-ray. I initialized the Samsung. It downloaded the new firmware and installed with no problem. The Blu-Ray discs that I have the most problem with are generally Disney Movies both Blu-Ray and DVD. Some It will play others it won't. I even reset the adult/child settings to OFF in case the player was not working due to 'Adult' content. This did not make a difference. This 'don't play' problem occurred when DVD were a new media. Now, I'm experiencing the same problem with this Blu-Ray Player. My advice...get a good DVD player forget Blu-Ray. I suspect the corporate outfits have gone too far by including interlock programs that prevent the movies from playing, due to security concerns.
