BD-P1500 doesn't have a capability to access all the apps that's available on newer bluray players. You can connect it on the net thru an ethernet cable that's connected on a router but that's only for firmware update thru the internet.

You can connect your Blu-Ray player to the internet but not wirelessly. You must have a wired connection. I just finished chatting with a service agent after buying a wirless LAN adapter only to discover that I cannot even use it on this player because it doesn't support a wireless connection.

The downloaded zip file is placed in a subfolder when you extract it. The .ruf file must be in the root directory of the usb drive to be recognized by the blue ray player. It should start pretty soon after inserting the usb drive.

mine did that as well, I even left it running over night and it never started. What I did was plug an ethernet cable directly from my router into the back of the bluray player, took the disc out and hit the "menu" button. you have to go into network setup and turn network capabilities on through there. Once you have turned that on, go into "system setup" and at the bottom there is an option for "system update" it will start automatically. Everything has worked for me after that.

Your player is a 2009 model. Smart Hub was introduced as a feature in the 2011 TV & Blu-ray line, so there are no Smart Hub updates for you to worry about.

Question

Is there some sort of upgrade/update for my Samsung BD-P1500 Blu-ray player that will allow it to load the newest Blu-ray disks?

My BD-P1500 Blu-ray player is not able to play the latest Blu-ray disc I purchased, "Prince of Persia, The Sands of Time". While it appears to load the disc and while it plays the previews on the disc, it will not play the main feature. The title screne appears but the menu selection "play, etc..." does not and the disc does not play the movie. Does my player need an upgrade and if so, where do I need to go to get it? I purchased the unit at Best Buy. Thank you.

Yep. This happens sometimes. I have experienced it with Vudu and Netflix. Samsung reports connected to the network and internet, but the apps don't work. Just turn off the player and turn it back again after a few minutes. Also note that this happens when you set the port configuration to 100Mbps Full Duplex instead of Auto at the router level.

I'm sorry to hear that you're having this issue with your Blu-Ray player.

Try upgrading the firmware to see if that helps with functionality of DVDs. if that still doesn't help, it may need to be inspected or repaired. To do that, call 800-SAMSUNG for further troubleshooting or repair options.

I'm sorry to hear that you're having this issue with playing Avatar.

In some cases, the firmware in the player needs to be updated to come into compliance with the additional protections that movie studios can add to discs. As a result, the firmware updates allow the players to be adaptable to these changes.

For your specific player, the updates can be updated in the player itself (by connecting with Ethernet cable to your router or modem) or by downloading the firmware updates from our support site.

Those updates for the BD-P1500 can be found here:

http://www.samsung.com/us/support/d...

(click on Firmware for the file updates and instructions)

Once updated, your discs should be able to play.

WinZip and WinRAR are two popular extraction software options that will allow you to uncompress zipped files, although there are many others on the market as well.

You should be able to copy the .RUF file directly to a freshly formatted thumbdrive. The instructions for that particular firmware process can be found here:

There are several ways to update your Blu-ray player, and you don't necessarily need to connect it with the wired connection.

You can also download a USB version or a CD version of the firmware update from the Samsung.com website. I provided a link for your specific model that has both the firmware and the update instructions.
