BDP5200 doesn't recognize BD-RE discs
My Philips BDP5200/51 doesn't recognize new Verbatim BD-RE DL 50GB discs. If I use the discs I bought a couples of months ago, the player can read them, but when I try using the discs I've just bought, it says that the discs are unsupported (or something like that). Actually I suppose that the problem is, due to the discs' MIDs. Perhaps BDP5200 (its firmware) doesn't support these MIDs yet.
I think so, because when I tried to format and clean the new discs, my PC said that it couldn't do this. I googled it, and found out, that my BD drive doesn't support the new MIDs, so that I had to update my BD drive's firmware. When I did it, it started to work OK for me. The new MIDs have became supported.
So, I'm here to ask you if there is a possibility to do something to make my BDP5200 recognize new BD discs? Here are examples of supported (old) and unsupported (new) MIDs:
Anyways. I think Philips has to release new firmware which could provide supporting this MID.
I really hope Philips will fix the problem as soon as possible.
