No, sorry - you cannot update any HD DVD player with firmware on a USB memory stick, only via ethernet or CD, and the player needs to be fully booted up to the main menu to update the firmware. Even Toshiba repair centers don't seem to be able to do this, they usually replace the player or the main board when sent in for repair.

Were you updating the firmware when this happened? That's usually when the player sets stuck on the Welcome screen, when the firmware updating sequence is broken before the new firmware is fully applied..

Nope sounds bricked. The only thing I can add is I have an onkyo HD player that did they same thing, but after it was unplugged it would rebooted correct. It never worked properly, never reliable and I had to send it off for repairs.

Congrats on the MOD promotion CochiseGuy
