Updating that DMP-BD60 player is very painful. First of all, I cannot use an USB stick, 2nd I have to find a CD-R because CD-RWs do not work, 3rd the instructions panasonic posts are for Windows XP (I use Windows 7) and 4th mine is Region Free for all Blu-Ray regions and somehow that update messed up the Network Checking for new firmware and updating over the net feature. The player refuses to find new firmware on the network (always has).
If I use the methods mentioned here and create the CD-R as an USB disk with the Windows 7 burn-to-disk feature, I get "Disk Unsupported" (even after finalizing that disk) and if I just burn that CD-R with the Windows Data drive feature, I get the error "E Disk" and the disk ejects.
All the methods I tried, no matter if CD-R, CR-RW, Windows 7 Built-in recording features or ImgBurn ended in either "disk unsupported" or "E Disk". Wow, I just want to update that firmware on a player and not land on Mars.
What a nightmare, I already destroyed 5 CD-Rs and the firmware is still not updated.Solution
Then I found the needed information on how ot resolve these issues by using InfraRecorder. Downloaded and installed that 64bit version for Windows 7, created that data disk with just the panasonic firmware file, loaded that disk and voilÃ* success.
Here is the link to the update resolved website where you will also find that InfraRecorder download link: http://p0wnz.com/panasonic-dmp-bd30-update-solved/
Forget all the Panasonic instructions. Use InfraRecorder and that CD-R disk is ready for that player update.
And if Panasonic would have given us an iso file, none of us would have suffered, wasted time, created coasters and everything would be fine. Besides, even the latest Panasonic Blu-ray player firmware instructions only describe how to create a firmware update CD with Windows XP, bummer.
