If you bought a Samsung blu-ray player after 2006, you could be dealing with an expensive electronic device that doesn’t want to play your movies. Why is this? Well, Samsung may not have provided the necessary updates to keep your movies playing. It might be telling you that you need the most recent update, but there is no update out there. The most common reason for there not being an update is that Samsung may not update for a particular player anymore. Samsung hasn’t exactly said for how long it keeps updates out there. This has resulted in people sending their players in. If the player is newer and there is no update, Samsung has even replaced blu-ray players. There are also some discs that say on their boxes that the disc may only be played on licensed devices. If you rent a disc from an online service, you are not going to see that box in order to know whether or not it is restricted to a licensed device. There is also the fact that that disclaimer is not on every box, so you could buy a disc and have no idea why it isn’t working. This is where Google could be your best friend or the customer service of the company you rented the disc from.
