Samsung BD-UP5000 firmware up grade

Q: Samsung BD-UP5000 firmware up grade

Hi everyone,

New to this, first post so please go slowly.

I have a Samsung blue ray player BD-UP5000, and I have down loaded the new zip file of the firmware upgrade version 1.6 to my computer. I then burnt a dvd-rw. When I inserted the disc into my Blue ray player it reads ERROR #0x000000ff and then ejects the disc. What am I doing wrong?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

It probably can't read re-writable media so try using DVD-R or DVD+R

You can also update it directly via the internet by connecting it to your router and updating in real-time from the Samsung website. The BD-UP5000 has an ethernet port on it for this purpose.

Can't seem to find an answer to my question - Does the firmware update mean I have to reinstall windows? I have done firmware updates on other devices in the past, but not on a "boot" device, so just need an answer.

Edit: According to samsung it does not wipe HD, but just wanted people who have done an "inplace upgrade" to answer.

Edit: It worked fine through magician.

Like the title says I am looking for a firmware upgrade for my Samsung InfoRanger SCM-110R.

Recently my ISP upgraded their signals and the InfoRanger doesn't work any longer. The firmware on the device is well over nine years old, and I'd like to try and upgrade it.

I realize this modem is a dinosaur but I can't afford a new one right now so any help would be greatly appreciated.

my dvd player (samsung ts-h352a) has been having issues lately meaning that it very rarely reads any cd inside. It's light will slowly pulse but it does not sound like it spins up and then reports that there is no cd in the drive. all cd's are original manufacturer copies. I went to the samsung site to upgrade the firmware and it has offered me a *.bin file that has no windows assosciation. when i look for drivers through device manager it looks for only *.inf files. what am i doing wrong, any suggestions to alternate fixes perhaps?

cheers, Hrtbob

How do I install the latest Samsung SSD firmware update (DXM04B0Q)? The Magician software is supposed to do it, but when I open up the download folder where the firmware update download is located, the Magician software doesn't see it. I've downloaded the firmware in many different locations, but still, the Magician software doesn't see it. Any Ideas? See snips to see firmare update download location and what Magician software sees. The firmware update (DXM04B0Q) is right below the Symantic folder.

A:How do I install the latest Samsung SSD firmware?

Couple of things you can try.
- Move the DXM04B0Q folder to your desktop. Does the Samsung Magician see it?
- If still no joy, try letting the Magician download the firmware. Verify it downloaded the correct version.

I also found this tutorial.

Samsung has recently posted firmware update EXM03B6Q for the 850 Pro on the download site.
I was unable to update via Magician so downloaded the ISO and ran it from a USB drive.
I was one of the lucky ones who didn't update to EXM02B6Q in Feb of 2015 which was a total disaster.
The update worked without any problems and speeds have not changed at all.
There is also a PDF installation guide for those who like to read first.
Don't forget to image the SSD first just in case. I did not, however loose data but better safe than sorry.

friends I'm installing a fresh samsung 840 120gb. i thought i could put the ssd on sata 1 [not zero] and get firmware via magician on my windows 8 lab mule. no dice. apparently magician ONLY wants to see the ssd on sata zero. it can pull up the drive, but none of the controls work.
soooo... I'm thinking I'm going to have to go with the drive 'as is' to install 7 on a notebook, then as first order of business go pickup the firmware update and execute it.

will this result in sub-par arrangement? best I can tell the fw update is non-destructive.
is there another way?

AFTER the os is installed?
a little guidance would sure be appreciated.

So I installed my new SSD, set up all my programs and files, and was having some trouble with discovering an ACHI drivers (which apparently cannot be achieved on my dell latitude model IDE ATA/ATAPI driver missing?)

Anyway after installing the Samsung Magician software to help optimize the SSD, it said that a firmware update was available, so upon updating I was rewarded with a BSOD after restarting. I became angry and did a system restore with my image disk and started over. This time in the samsung magician it said the firmware was already up to date so I didn;t think anything of it until today another BSOD. If I have to do another reinstall I will take my own life, so I hope someone can help me here.

Do you use the DW1520 Wireless-N WLAN Half-mini card?
If so then it looks like the driver for it is the problem.

Do you have a spare HDD that you can use because I think the driver for it is incompatible with SSDs. I will need to double check.

The MP3 player contends that it's memory is full, yet it has nothing in its navigational tree. The mp3 device has corrupted before; however, last time it simply froze on one track rendering it impossible to change tracks without the device shutting down. In this instance there are no tracks to attempt to switch to, the only thing that works is the radio.

My solution was simple, reinstall the firmware implementing YP-MT6 updater--just like last time I had an issue. Sadly, the firmware install freezes well under half way through when it says "locking drive[ers?]" it was one of the two.

Anyway to beet this problem? 'Cause I'm at a loss. Not a happy costumer as far as this little samsung is concerned--i figured their phones were great so their other stuff should be too! Ha.

I turned on my computer and a message popped up to update my 3 month old Samsung firmware.
I used Magician 4.5, pushed the button, and it said "failed to update drive with new firmware".
Oh? When I rebooted later my OS would not boot. I went into the bios and it ID'd the drive as Samsung 3.
Now I can't boot the drive at all. I burned the ISO of the firmware update but it can NOT find the drive in DOS. If I boot with another drive and the ruined drive together, both Samsung 840 Pro and Samsung 850 Pro, it jams the boot until I remove the damaged drive. Anybody have any knowledge or any ideas?

I want to upgrade the firmware of my new Samsung DVD writer (from Toshiba Samsung Storage Technology) to the latest version.
DVD writer Model:
For some reason it will not burn DVD ?RW disks.

So I downloaded the latest appropriate firmware file from
Namely SH-S223C_SB04.exe which I ran under win7 (64) bit OS

This executable program in turn started up ?Tsdnwin.exe? installation program which then crashes (freezes) the system.
I had to use the Windows ?Task Manager? to End the Task.

Can this be a compatibility problem for win7 64 bit OS?
Or is my Win7 OS somehow corrupted?

Next I installed and tried ODD FW Liveupdate program and it too fails with an error message :

?that due to a system problem it failed to operate a program by
automatically connecting to it.?

Can anyone suggest what might be the problem here?

A:Failure of Firmware Upgrade of Samsung DVD Writer using Win 7 (64bit)

According to this page, you shouldn't need to worry about drivers or firmware. What I would suggest is completely uninstalling the driver from your Device Manager. Restart your computer. Windows 7 should pick up and install the burner fine.

Don't download driver and firmware files from anywhere but the manufacturers website, problems like this happen way more often when you do that

According to official specs you have 2 x 4 gigs to equal 8.  specs Here is the Manual: Service Manual See page 53. The memory is inside the big T shaped cover on the bottom of the laptop. It can take up to 16 gigs of memory, 2 x 8 gig modules of this stuff: 8-GB memory module (PC3, 12800, 1600-MHz) 670034-001 Memory prices are down again so this is a good time to buy. I tell most people to forget the 8 gigs to 16 gigs upgrade as most computer users do not need 16 gigs of RAM but processing RAW images to .jpgs or other format is an exception to that: you need all the memory and help you can get.  An SSD is also a good idea. Your laptop can actually take 2 hard drives. I could write a book on the options that gives you and how to go about it, and I will if you post back and ask questions.  If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

The only way to "downgrade" from any version of to have both a valid license and a valid means of installing XP.I correct that...I believe that some OEMs (HP, etc.) provide "downgrade" capabilities on some of the systems they have sold...but I'm not sure.Specs for Your SystemAs I look at the specs for that system, it doesn't indicate that Win 7 was originally installed.FWIW: for installing Win 95 or Win can install either/both, as long as you have a valid CD and license/key.Louis

A:How to up grade memory

Hi, Next time it would be a better idea to check what model you wrote, it took me some time to figure out what model you wrote there. Well I don't know any service manual which would show you step by step how to disassebmble the machine and how to put in the new sticks of RAM. But youtube has plenty of disassembly steps in order to get to the RAM. But be careful, to my knowledge, I think that all V nitro notebooks have the memory dims on the opposite side of the motherboard (facing towards the back of the notebook) so to install new memory you will need to remove the entire motherboard, since on these notebooks the keyboards comes off and not the back. Here is a youtube video which shows how to disassemble the notebook: Also I think that this can void your warranty, even if I did not saw any sticker in my notebook (true, different V nitro model) which would suggest this.

Now that I am running XP exclusively will I notice the difference if I add another 128mb to the existing 512mb?
I always held it down to 512mb because of dual-booting with WinMe.

you will see a lil diffrence pherhaps in games and huge applications. But overall not worth it. On the other hand if you added another 512MB you'll see a huge diffrence

So do you splurge on CPU Cooler? Or are bottom-of-the-basement ones good enough for you?

I just got OCZ Vendetta CPU Cooler, only $0 bucks,and $30 before, lol.

So do you buy premium CPU Coolers? What about ones with premium grade?

A:What grade of CPU Cooler do you use?

Looks like a good deal.
I generally get aftermarket CPU coolers as the stock cooler is average at best, pi55 poor at worst.
If you are planning on not overclocking then the stock cooler will be ok. It's effective.
Overclocking then an aftermarket cooler is probably mandatory. I generally overclock so good cooling is a must, although I usually buy and sell CPU's of the same model until I find one that will overclock 25+% without any increase in voltage. Those are keepers and indicate that the CPU will overclock 40-50% while remaining within the manufacturers recommended voltage range thus preserving the warranty and it's lifespan.
The more voltage the better the cooling (CPU, chipset and chassis) needs to be.
No overclocking - stock cooler is fine unless you're looking for bling.
Mild overclock : <40% core frequency increase or <4-5% increase in Vcore -better air cooler
Big overclock - bigger increases than above- Use watercooling and/or Thermoelectric cooling (TEC, also known as Peltier).

(numbers quoted are for Intel CPU's. My knowledge of OC'ing AMD CPU's is fairly limited)

CPU productivity drops off rapidly after 3.6GHz clock speed. Very few programs benefit from running a CPU past this speed, and none scale linearly- a case of diminishing returns.

As for aftermarket air coolers, tower heatpipe coolers generally give better performance than top down coolers but both are dependent upon the fan/s moving the air through the heatpipes and plates.
Good cooler + crap fan = average cooler
Crap cooler + good fan = average cooler

A fairly comprehensive table of contemporary air coolers here (Intel)
and here (AMD)

huh? why wouldn't the programs work, you should try the compatibility modes for XP, they work for most of the stuff out there. But if you insist on going back to 98. boot up to DOS and type: format C: (assuming your windows is installed on C: ). that will delete everythng on the C: partition so back up the stuff you want to keep before doing it. and BTW, XP is WAY better than 98 in my opion, but that's just me...

A:Solved: up grade 8.0-8.1

Sounds like it's not finding the hard drive (or SSD) to be a boot device. Maybe there was a glitch that destroyed the boot during the upgrade. Or maybe, just a coincidence, and the hard drive is corrupted or loose. See if you can get into the BIOS or UEFI and what you can learn about the hard drive.

I have recently been given a hi-grade green 320 laptop.

As it has come to me via a friend of a friend I would like to restore it to its original factory settings before letting my children use it.

I didn't get any disks or manuals with the laptop and I am not all that good with technology.

Is there anyone out there that could give me step by step instructions on how to restore to factory settings.

If it can't be done I would appreciate knowing this before I end up spending hours looking elsewhere for an answer.


A:hi-grade green 320

Hello sam0452

I don`t know anything about these laptops, but I found this information for you.


" How do I reinstall Windows when my system did not come with a Recovery CD (Windows XP systems)?
As your system starts you should see a ?PRESS F10? message. Pressing F10 at this point will start the system recovery program, and should result in a ?Starting system recovery? message appearing.

To completely wipe and reinstall your system click the ADVANCED OPTIONS button, and then click on the QUICK FORMAT option. Then press the NEXT button and answer YES to the next two questions."

If the recovery partition is still there, that should work. If someone has deleted the partition you will not be able to do it.

My girl friend has 16 bit computer and i like to upgrade to a 32 or 64 bit computer ok . It had a 95 version on it and how to down load it successful. I would like to know any answer asp

thank you tech support guy ok

A:Can i up grade a 16 bit computer

Really need a bit more information about your computer:

If, by 16 Bit you are referring to the hardware bus of the motherboard, then it is an ISA slot motherboard, and you really cannnot upgrade that without swapping out the motherboard. Likewise, all the peripheral cards would need to be replaced. In short, by the time you are finished, you would essentially be building a new computer. Easier probably, and less expensive to purchase a newer one.

On the other hand, if you are talking about the Operating system, that is a different case. It would depend on hold old the system is, what you are currently running on it ( is that Windows 95? if so, that is a 32 bit system), the installed programs, etc.

It could be the two sticks aren't compatable. If they each work alone, and if they each work in a different slot then that would most likely be the case.

Hello. I have to purchase a top-of-the-line scanner to scan 4x6 photos.
There are so many choices and I do not know what specs I need to look for when deciding on a scanner.
Here are some of the criteria and if you have a suggestion, please let me know. Thank you in advance and Merry Christmas.

1) Available at Circuit City, Best Buy, Office Depot - brick and mortar
2) Under $200
3) Quality is the #1 priority - scanning 4x6 photos to import to pc.

A:How to choose a TOP-grade scanner

The general measure of scanner quality outside of #bit color depth, which all seem to max out now anyway, is DPI capability. This allows you to capture the most data from the original image...and results in LARGE files.

So the higher the DPI stats the better the image can be.....if you have the capability to print it on a high quality Photo Printer.

Personally I believe that you will get a better result from a middle of the road scanner and a HIGH quality printer than the other way around.

Oh, I would not even consider a sheet feed scanner, but select a platen model instead. I have a feed model and I wish I had spent the incremental $$$ in the beginning and gotten the Platen mdl.

Windows carshed periodicaly when I install something, run a high membory requirment program, and when I run some programs I get a message saying xxx.dill missing.

However when I pop my old ram in 156 RAM P133, my machine workes fine.

The BIOS detects the new SDRAM, and there are no gliches in pre windows including windows and drivers instilations, though if I do this in windos it can crash.

The motherboard is "American Megatrends"

A:Life after... a SDRAM up grade

Read that this could be do the Upgrade rather than a clean install.

But if I did this, would I really see and improvement over what I have now.


A:Up-Grade or Clean-install

We're currently looking into Symantec's Endpoint Protection and WatchGuard Firewall's Advanced Security features but was wondering if you'd recommend anything better?

A:Business Grade Security Question

Well, Sophos Endpoint Protection and Symantec Endpoint Protection are the most popular, but my knowledge on endpoint solutions is limited so I can't offer much advice.

call me cheap if you want im still on dial-up we dont have a good dsl provider. i up-graded to vista and now when someone calls and im on the net the phone will ring and boot me off the net. this never happened till up-grade and my wife takes tests on the net and doesn't need to get kicked off. how do i eliminate this problem.

A:Solved: getting the boot after vista up-grade

Look in your modem options. Chances are that all you need to do is add the code at the begining of your dialup number that temporarily disables call-waiting. It varies according to location. Whatever the code in your area, add it to the beginning and then put in a pause or 2 so the line will accept the change before the dialing begins. For example:

*70,,<your ISP's number>

If you have any program that allows "modem-on-hold", i.e., allows you to temporarily use the telephone without disconnecting the modem, then disable that program.

And, if you have a progressive and modern ISP that supports the V92 protocol, then you may need to send a command to your modem to use V90 instead.

I would like to upgrade XP Home SP2 to Pro with retaining datas in the harddrive (in-place upgrade), but could not ; I get this error message upon setup of Pro CD: "Setup cannot continue because the version of Windows on your computer is newer than the version on the CD".

In the past, I just installed Home because I had no knowkledge about computer at that time, but now I need Pro for its security feature unavailable in Home.

I would really appreciate if you would teach me a method for the in-place upgrade.

Thank you for your time and assistance for me!

I have a Tekram p5t30-b4 mb that is supposed to support 256Mb of ram, but will not boot up with more than 32 Mb installed. It will detect the ram, detect my HDD, detect my CD-ROM, and go no further. The local shop had no answer. I contacted Tekram 3 weeks ago and am still waiting for a reply. I could really use some help here, as 32 Mb is too slow and i cant afford a new system. thanks in advance for any guidance !

Hi All,
I picked up a formatted Hi-Grade Notino R5400S pretty cheap for my daughter to use and to be fair it has been excellent for an older machine. Runs XP fine without any problems. I went to Hi Grade website and installed all the drivers without issue except one - the Quick Start Buttons (4 on the front left hand edge of the laptop). The driver didn't recognise the hardware. I was wondering if anyone had a spare R5400(S) driver/installation disk for these buttons (QSB) as these are all that prevents this tough goldien oldie from being complete.

What's a max replacement CPU upgrade for my Compaq Presario 700 CM2130? Also I would like to install the max RAM and Hard Drive. This old computer is in perfect condition, and I keep it in the garage to look up information as I am working on things.The computer is now running mobile AMD Athlon (tm) 4 1500+1.29 GHz240 MB of RAMmessage edited by wfoltz

A:up-grade my old Compaq Presario 700 CM2130

You need more RAM. WInXP requires at least 512MB. I wouldn't recommend spending any cash upgrading the CPU even if you could. Use that laptop to log onto the site and use their online tools to determine if you can upgrade the RAM.You could get an external hard drive to use for more storage space if needed. Most run off a USB port.

Hi all,

I have a HI-Grade r5400 Laptop which keeps turning off - I am pritty sure its overheating, as I get a wift of the burning smell every so often.

Sometimes it wont turn on, if you leave it for a while it will turn on - after 8-10 seconds it turns off.

I've opened it up and cleared all the dust off the fans, the fans seem to work fine.

I could try a different fan - I am struggling to find parts for this make and model online though.
Any one have any suggestions?


A:Hi-Grade r5400 Laptop overheating

Make sure it's getting enough air. Many laptop users make the mistake of smothering the poor thing in blankets or a pillow when they use it. Did you remove the memory cover and clean that area? Did you take off the shell and clean the CPU? An overheated CPU sounds like the culprit here. Make sure you screwed the CPU fan/heat sink onto the bracket properly if you dismounted it.

A:Solved: Hi-Grade M760S Shuts itself down!!

but for some reason when I am browsing the net (any site) the laptop will just switch off completely. Click to expand...

It maybe overheating
try cleaning out the vents
use compressed air
i use a vacuum cleaner - but that does produce a lot of static and may damage the laptop

Then I ran it in safe mode, and it started fine, so I restarted yet again, and started it normally, and so far so good.Click to expand...

it may be worth restoring to a date when it worked fine
start > programs ? accesories > system tools >system restore

Also when it is not plugged into the wall (mains adapter) the power does not last 5 minutes, even when it is saying battery full, and sometimes when plugging it in it will make a 'popping sound' as if there is a dodgy connection. Click to expand...

sounds like a faulty battery - usually last longer than a year - but it may need replacing - did you only have 1 year warranty

all my adapters popp - if i connect the mains lead into the adapter - is this what you mean ?

I've been rebuilding a Hi-Grade Notino R5400 laptop with XP SP2 . The only problem I've got seems to with the onboard sound card.

In device manager, there are four 'Other devices' shown with problems. These are

Multimedia Audio Controller
PCI Simple Communications Controller
Unknown Device
Unknown Device

I've tried letting the system reinstall the drivers, including letting the system connect to the internet. It seems to find driver related to Via AC97 audio but then the systems crashes and need a total rebuild.

What I need to know is how to identify the 'Other devices' and how to load the drivers without a total crash and rebuild.

any help gratfully recieved.

A:Sound on Hi-Grade Notino R5400 is the download site for Hi-grade. Try there first.

My friend just got a new gateway using XP with the latest version of MMJ, it is very user unfriendly, he is trying to burn a CD using it, and having nothing but problems.
I have ME on my computer with MMJ that is about 2 years old, but I love it, it is the best and easy to use.

My question:: would it be possible to e-mail him my version of MMJ, and put it on his machine, would I have to uninstall his version first? or is it possible to have both at the same time?

If this is possible I could solve his problems quickly.

If it is possible to give him mine, please tell me how it can be done.

They need to max the ram, 4 gb if possible and then kill Uac (Users in Control panel), notification of same to "don't" in Security Center Control Panel, disable Windows Defender in Control Panel, Admin Tools, Services and then uninstall any Norton, MacAfee or Pc Cillan software onboard and use Avira free antivirus and Superantispyware or Malwarebuytes for spyware control.

First thing is to backup all of the important data (Not Programs) to another media like CD-R's, DVD or thumb drive. Then using the Windows XP upgrade disk making sure you have the legal key code for this disk just insert the disk in the CD-ROM drive and follow the prompts and if anything goes wrong call Microsoft or post back here with the error message and write it down.

A8N32-SLI Motherboard
512mb Nvidia GeForce 7900 Videocard
2gb Corsair Ram (2 sticks)
4800+ Dual Core Processor

When I power on the computer, it gives two short "humming" noises and then one long beep followed by three shorter beeps. After that, everything seems to power on properly, except I get no video.

This scenario happens now that I have removed all of the LED fans.

Before that, it would refuse to boot up to the beeping stage.

It took close to 8 tries, after I removed the fans, to get the computer to functionally boot.

All that I'm describing has happened in the last few hours. Before that, there would be occasional hang ups, but everything ran exceptionally fine.

Please help, I sincerely need this computer to work in the next day.

As always, I truly appreciate all attempts to assist.

Dos Beep Codes

I remembered something briefly in a class I took years ago, about Dos Beep codes. I reviewed a chart on some obscure website and all of the different codes I've been recieveing point back to the videocard occassionally including the system memory as a lesser potential culprit.

Maybe twice out of the bajillion times I've tried to start this computer up did I get the dreaded continuous beep pointing at my powersupply.

Could those have been flukes? What should I do to troubleshoot the actual problem?
