Samsung has released two new firmware updates for its Blu-ray disc players that it says address the problem of Avatar not playing on two of its models. Although several other Blu-ray manufacturers had received similar complaints about the compatibility of the Avatar Blu-ray disc, most had been directed at Samsung's BD-UP5000 and the BD-P1400 models. Meanwhile, Fox is attempting to quash the controversy over the non-playing players. A spokesman said on Monday that the firmware issue has only affected a "minuscule" number of consumers and that the non-playing problem seems larger than it is only because of the enormous volume of Avatar Blu-ray discs sold over the last ten days.
