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?
