Default My Sony BDP-S300 keeps freezing!

My Sony BDP-S300 keeps freezing. 4 of the last movies I've watched have froze about an hour or more into it. Titles include: Ocean's 13, Million Dollar Baby, Assassination of Jessie James, and We Own The Night. Is anyone else having this problem? Is it the discs? I am truly clueless.

Make sure to have the latest firmware update.

Not to sound stupid, but I am not sure how I do this.

Two ways. Go to Sony support and download the latest firmware upgrade, burn it to a CD and follow the instructions...OR...request the latest firmware update from Sony FOR FREE. They will send you a disc in the mail.

3.70 is the latest firmware update. This may help: http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu...pl?mdl=BDPS300

I had the same problem last week as I was watching A Few Good Men. I thaught maybe it was a "bad disc" so I popped in Deja Vu and Remember The Titans that worked flawlessly previously. I called Sony and they were nice enough to send me the 3.70 fw but I can't even play THAT disc. I get "no disc" error message. Looks like my player is completely DEAD!. I'll have to get it fixed or buy a new one. I've only had it about 4 months and was able to watch about 30 movies without any problems until last week. Needless to say I'm disappointed

Hopefully you'll have better luck than me

Other movies seem to work although freezing has occurred intermittently. Initally "Invincible" would not even load (either with a "Cannot play this disc" or "bd-rom" message). After many attempts it loaded and played approx. 4 scenes; no matter how many times I tried it would freeze at the same point.
