Well, the entire story was that the BD-60 played Avatar BR
until undated to the 2.4 firmware, after which nothing much could be done about it. I couldn't go back and re-install 2.3 because the BD-60 would recognize that it was an older firmware and would reject it, according to tech support. Calling to Panasonic tech support had me first reformat my USB drive to FAT 12 and that accomplished nothing. Then calling again, tech support said that I had to return it to TX. So that's what I did. The oddest thing is that my older BD-30 (which seems to be bullet proof, although a bit clunky in terms of weight and size) would play anything and that includes some of the audio BR's
that the BD-60 kept coming up with the message to check the disc. In other words, it was the wrong region. Prior to sending back the BD-60, the tech support guy said not to update firmware unless something was wrong. I had updated firmware for the BD-60 from 2.1 through 2.4 and only when the 2.4 was installed did I have problems and specifically with Avatar BR
. I had previously read that a firmware update isn't suppose to do what happened. So it isn't the firmware update alone, but something peculiar to my particular BD-60 because others can play Avatar BR
. I am sure that Panasonic tech support tried to play Avatar BR
and it didn't play. At which point, they sent me the refurbished BD-605 that is identical to the BD-60 except in model number.
