So I just received my BDR-205 drive. I opened my system, took out my DVD-RW drive, replaced it with the BDR, and turned on the system. Everything booted up fine. Windows XP (SP3) told me in the little corner that it detected the drive.
I open up Windows Explorer and it shows it as "DVD-RAM Drive (F: )"
I then stick in a Blu-Ray movie. It changes to "CD Drive" and when I click on it, instead of getting the files and folders, it waits maybe 10 seconds and then pops up the error window saying:
"Disk is not formatted
Windows cannot read from this disk. The disk might be corrupted, or it could be using a format that is not compatible with Windows."
I pop the disc out, try out a DVD movie and it plays perfectly fine. Also reads original CDs fine.
Is there some kind of extra driver that needs to be installed for Windows to see Blu-Rays?
