Introduction

Updating the firmware on your Memorex Blu-ray player can add new features and resolve problems with the player's software. New features can include new streaming services that weren't offered on your player initially. For example, a player that may not have offered Hulu Plus initially may be added through a firmware update. Additionally, some problems that are noticed with your player after the device ships can be resolved through firmware updates.

Tips

  • If the player is having trouble reading the update discs, first ensure that the disc does not having any physical damage that would prevent the player from reading information on the disc. If there is no visible physical damage to the disc, ensure that you downloaded the software update for the right player model. Finally, if there are two discs, make sure you put the right disc in first.
  • Don't power down the Blu-ray player during the firmware update. This may result in the Memorex Blu-ray player either no longer working, or no longer working correctly.
  • If the update isn't recognized on the thumb drive, restart the device, connect the thumb drive and then try again. Alternatively, reformat the thumb drive and walk carefully through the process of putting the required files on the drive to ensure you're doing everything correctly.
  • Be patient. The time it takes the firmware update to install depend on the size of the update. Additionally, the larger the software update, the longer it will take the file to download as well.
  • If you're having problems with the player, installing available software updates can be a quick and cheap fix. Memorex does not publish a schedule for update releases, and they are released on an as-needed basis.
