Athough this is technecially about hardware, I believe this problem is Windows related, but was unsure of where to post.

 

 

So I am running a liteon ihes-208 bd-rom in a gaming computer. I have watched blu rays before with this exact rig. It plays DVDs and CDs I have added no new hardware since I last watch a blu ray months ago.

 

 

Now, when I put a disk in the BD-rom does not recognize the disk.

 

 

Things I have tried:

 

 

   Uninstalled/reinstalled the BD-ROM driver. Also tried all of the CD-ROM drivers in Windows 7.

 

 

   Uninstalled/reinstalled the ATAPI drivers

 

 

   Ran Windows hardware troubleshooting...pffft

 

 

   Uninstalled and removed the BD-ROM, opened the case of the BD-ROM drive and physically cleaned the laser eye with a camera lens cleaner. Restarted, CCleaned the registry, shut down, reinstalled BD-ROM, restarted. Tested ok for functionality with DVDs, failed with Blurays

 

 

   Uninstalled/reinstalled VLC and Arcsoft

 

 

   Installed latest K-lite media pack full

 

 

 

 

Anybody have any thoughts?

If it plays DVD and CD but not Blu-Ray, then I would think there must be a chipset exclusively for BR on the PCB ... and that it has failed. I would change the ODD.

I was able to work around this issue. Sounds silly, really...to get all but a couple of my disks to play, I had to have Total media already started. Then in Windows, open the computer window and double click the BD-ROM. This makes the tray open, insert disk and double click the drive in TMT. Then it starts.
