I recently purchased a LG GGC-H20L Blu-ray/HD-DVD combo drive and I am having some problems installing the drive. The drive is found in my Hardware Manager and is listed correctly. Also it states that the driver is working fine. When I put either a blu-ray or hd-dvd disc in, the dvd icon in "My Documents: chages from DVD-Ram Drive to CD drive and nothing happens. I am also running PowerDVD 7 Ultra and that will not even boot the disc up. Also I have a Xbox 360 HD DVD and when I connect it to my PC it does the same thing. I did installed the UDF 2.5 Driver for Xbox 360 HD DVD Drive support and now I can read the file structure of the disc. Also AnyDVD HD can read the disks and rip to my HD, but cannot play directly from the drive. Since I am able to play from my HD I am kind of thinking that it might be a SATA issue as my mobo has to be maybe 4-5 years old. I am fresh out of ideas and anything would be great.
Asus A8AE-LE mobo (only has 2 SATA150)
AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200
MSI NX8600GTS 256MB HDCP Video Card
HTO Striker 7.1 Audio Card
PowerDVD 7 Ultra
Monitor not HDCP but that is why I have AnyDVD HD.
