I just got this from NewEgg. It actually writes blu-ray's perfectly fine but it has issues reading blu-ray discs(I haven't tried DVDs yet). I'll try open a folder on the disc and it will basically freeze for a long time(maybe 15 minutes), I'll let it go and eventually it will open. Whats odd is for most of that time the blue light isn't blinking and I don't hear the drive doing anything. So it makes me wonder if its something with my PC, however I have another blu-ray drive I tested on the same PC and that reads just fine(its unplugged now however). I copied 10GB of data from a blu-ray to my hard drive and it took like an hour, would keep pausing doing nothing and then resuming after a while.
I have the most recent firmware.
I plan to soon try the drive in another PC soon to see if it still has that strange reading issue but is there a certain setting on my PC or bios I should change? Would uninstalling & installing again fix such a problem?
