I am running Windows 7 Premium and have recently purchased two blu ray dvd's which won't play on my system. I have tried various sites for a program that I will pay for which would allow me to watch and download to my Vaio and then transfer to my external drive. This laptop does not have a Blu Ray Disc Player as far as I know but it allows me to play other non Blu Ray discs. When I insert the Blu Ray Disc and I enter My Computer and right click on it to open the disc a pop up appears stating Insert a disc into Drive D and then it ejects the disc from the player. Can anyone help me with either of the answers to these questions.
Hi @bobbbell ,
Did the drives come with any disks for installing drivers ? if not go to the manufacturers website and check if they have driver software, there is a chance that the driver isnt correct, thats hard to say though but its simple just installing it to make sure (that's if that is what the problem is though), with the drives plugged in you can look to see if windows actually detects them too, various ways to check via the My/computer icon or the bios etc, if they are not showing as being there then that to me would signal that the driver isnt installed, they should work though as its just windows, really has nothing to do with the fact its a laptop, windows is windows, saying that though they may not be compatible with the hardware in the laptop, I really doubt that though, but anything is possible, these things are usually made now days to work on anything at all literally.
Also, Just to make sure you have all correct codecs installed and a suitable player for all your disks be it dvd/cd/blu ray and/or downloaded media files etc, download this my friend, its free and I have used it for many many years now, in my opinion it is far superior to windows media player and windows media centre or any other codec/media player packs around and they update it regular too, and its free the built in windows stuff is sometimes rubbish and a lot of the time wont even play certain file type, BUT this does.
Here is a direct link to it, let us know how you get on, should work though, see here --->>>> http://filehippo.com/download_klite_codec_pack/
oh P.S, firstly remove any codec packs or anything like that you may have installed, you will find them in your control panel under programs and features, sometimes they can conflict with other codec software and players.
