    Hello,
    Can you tell me what software you have installed on the computer to play the DVD? You need a DVD decoder to play DVD's on a computer.

    Thanks,

What do you mean by "nothing happens"?
Do you have a DVD with the software on it? Did you put the DVD in the drive and nothing happened? Is your DVD drive set to AutoPlay when a disk is put in it? If not, you can open the drive (open My Computer, then select the DVD drive, and find the setup.exe file, and double-click it).
If this is not the issue, perhaps you have an older version of the software. Usually you can still install older versions, and use the Update functionality to upgrade to a newer version online. If it's too old (like a Win 98 version or something), then you will just have to buy a new version.

Just installed a LG WH08LS20 in my computer, everytime I put in a Blu-Ray disc the computer freezes up. Any ideas?


The exact same thing happens to me. It reads Blu-Rays, burns DVDs fine, but when I put in a blank Blu Ray disc to burn, it freezes. As soon as I open the tray, the computer continues as normal as though nothing happened. I can't find anything on what is going on.

Try rebooting...if that was done already, try cleaning the disk by gently wiping with a non abrasive cloth from the center out around the dvd. If your drive can play other dvd's then it may just be a fluke. Does it spin when the dvd is in the drive?
