Any chance you could hook it up to the internet? It's a pretty simple task to update the firmware that way.
Else there are right ways to burn the cd-r and probably as many or more wrong ways. You "just" need to read the instructions a bit more carefully, and figure out how to get your computer to do it that way to get a usable firmware update disc. Just getting ejected means you need to do it a different way. (I haven't burnt a firmware disc since my BD10 was retired, and that would have been on a Mac, so won't be much help above and beyond that little tidbit.)
Or perhaps you can call Panasonic and have them send you a firmware disc.
For me, the other obvious things to do is try playing the disc on another machine (which you'll shortly have, how are you going to update its firmware?) and if that doesn't work, get another copy of the disc to try in the BD55.
