You say you bought an HDMI to composite adapter, but what you would need would be a composite to HDMI adapter.  (ie: these gadgets tend to be unidirectional.)  It might make sense to just buy a more modern player instead. Blu Ray players came out in 2006, so I wouldn’t be surprised if old ones are already showing up at Goodwill stores.
