I just purchased and installed the exact same drive (GGW-H20L) that I purchased from Newegg and I cannot get it to play BD for anything. It works for music and traditional (e.g. common DVDs) but when I insert a Blu Ray disc it keeps telling me there isn’t a disc in the drive (i.e. “please insert a disc in drive E”).
I’ve tried it with both (trial versions) of Cyberlink PowerDVD 9 Ultra and Corel WinDVD9, both with the same result. I’m truly at a loss here! What am I not doing in order to get my PC to play HD-DVD/BR discs?
For what it’s worth, here are my key PC specs, all up to date on both firmware and drivers:
OS: XP Pro Service Pack 3
CPU: X6800 Intel Core 2 Duo
RAM: 2 GB Corsair
GPU: ATI 3870 output thru DVI
Monitor: Dell 2407WFP
HDD: Too many to bother typing, just lots
MoBo: EVGA NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI SPP Revision A2
Not sure what else I would need to supply in regards to info about my PC, but if I’m missing something let me know.
If I’ve not omitted anything crucial, can anyone tell me why my new LG drive will not play BDs or HD-DVD discs?
