[qanda]This thread is about the LG BH100 Blu Ray + HD-DVD Player. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Hi, I'm new to the boards so forgive me if I do this wrong; I actually googled my troubleshoot first and various threads popped up linked with this site;
unfortunately none of those threads seem to really match up with my problem.
I've Owned the GGC-H20L BR/HDDVD drive for a bit over a year now, and for the initial 9 months had nothing wrong with it.
I purchased Power DVD8 ultra last year and even flashed it so it would continue to play HD-DVD etc etc...
about 2 months ago, the drive just suddenly stopped playing BR and HDDVD; I always keep up to date with the firmware for all my devices and update my PowerDVD8 on a regular basis.
PowerDVD8 always says : F: Unsupported Format etc etc or No disc in drive F:
so after 2 months of frustration I called up LG and they sent me a replacement (thank you LG for not being dicks this time)
after the replacement I'm still getting the SAME problem. Now, I am just completely lost as to how something could work completely fine for 8-9 months and then suddenly stop working???
My specs: I have it connected to a 37" Vizio@720p and a Sony rear projetction 60" @ 1080p;
750W 4 rail power supply
32-bit XP Professional SP3
Intel Core2Duo CPU E6550@ 2.33 GHz; 2GB RAM
NVIDA GeForce 8800 GT SLi
Creative SB Fatal1ty X-Fi Xtreme Gamer
Asus P5N-E SLI mobo
nothing is overclocked;
I ran Nero DriveSpeed and my Max Read speed is 122x @ Spin downtime 2min.
I have all the updated drivers on my Graphics cards and updated the Catalyst program;
I'm not VERY tech savvy, but I can look online and read forums and usually figure things out; but this is the first time where I'm just completely stumped as to what could possibly be wrong?
I've run the BD Advisor and everything is Green...
I ran the Nero DiscSpeed 4 test:
Burst Rate: 61 MB/s
Cpu Usage: 4x 1%; 8x 2%
Please help, I'm really at a loss as to what else to do at this point
