I tried to update the firmware on my BD player by downloading the update , and then burning to a CR-R using my iMac.However when I inserted the CD-R into the BD player,the screen kept flashing VUD and 0/9.The tray will not eject the CD-R.I found out how to open the BD player and manually eject the CD-R.
I re-assembled the player with the CD-R removed.The player is still in update mode ,flashing 0/9.
I'm wonder if I connect the player via ethernet to the internet,if I can complete the update ??

I've discovered that other people have had problems burning updates when using Apple products.
The last update I burned on my old Dell PC with no problems.I guess I could set it back up , burn another CD-R dis-assemble the player,open the tray manually , and try the update again.

What about a USB "thumb" drive? That's what I always use with my Mac (for an OPPO BD player). Don't know if that'll work now that you've already started and have an issue.

I had that same problem with the 021 update on a S350. I probably read the same site as you and it seemed clear that once you start the upgrade from CD you need to finish it that. You can't switch to network update at that point. I had to burn a second CD on my PC instead of Mac and open up the player to remove the Mac disk and replace with the PC one. In the end it did end up performing the update successfully.

Since it wasn't even my player I think I'll just ask the owner to call Sony for firmware update CDs in the future...

I burned another update on a CD-R using a PC , dis-assembled the player ,manually opened the tray , and tried to update the firmware,but still no joy.

I called Sony Canada this morning, and they are mailing me a CD-R update.

Hi Biggles. From what I remember, the flashing VUD 0/9 is normal. The number goes up by 1 during the update. (ie, 1/9...2/9...3/9 and so on till 9/9.)

I have a Sony 5000ES Blu Ray player and I burn all my updates onto CD-R with no problems.

Hi Fuzzy ,

I've updated the BD player before.I used a PC to burn the update onto a CD-R , and , as you describe , the numbers increased during the update.

This time,the update got stuck at 0/9 , and stayed that way for over an hour.
