Hi carlos,
The reason for this is that Bluray is a different file type than DVD.  That means that a DVD player can only handle certain file types of which Bluray is not one of them.  The drive you are using is a DVD drive.
Unfortunately the only way to play a Bluray disc is with a Bluray drive.  These can be purchased at any computer or electronics store and are becoming quite competitive in price.  That or you can return the movie and buy a DVD or CD version of the disk.
Hope that helps, and please don't forget to vote/rate!

Blue Ray not working


One of the advantages of owning an HP Pavilion includes playing your favorite DVDs conveniently at home or anywhere with your HP Pavilion laptop or notebook.
Whether you have Windows 7 or Windows Vista, your HP Pavilion may experience problems playing your DVDs.
For example, sometimes you may have a DVD movie skip while playing, which can happen frequently with a lot of DVD handling, such as with rental DVDs.
Perhaps your DVD player does not recognize the DVD and rejects it.
When you troubleshoot your HP Pavilion DVD player, you become more acquainted with your HP Pavilion, plus you can get back to movie-watching sooner.
Clean the DVD if you notice any skipping while playing or if the DVD stops.
You can clean the DVD by wiping it from the center to the edge using a lint-free cloth and filtered water.
Avoid watching DVD movies while you have a virus system scan operating on your computer system.
Reschedule the virus scan to another time or disconnect the scan temporarily and then reconnect the scan when you have finished watching your movie.

Disconnect from the Internet while watching movies.
Other programs on your HP computer can access the Internet and disrupt the movie as you watch.
Turn off your printer, scanners and other external devices connected to your HP Pavilion while you watch movies.
This allows your computer to concentrate its resources on your DVD player.
Install the latest DVD player updates from the HP Support and Drivers website for the best DVD performance.
Test the DVD Drive
Insert the DVD into the HP Pavilion DVD drive. Close any window that opens automatically.
Click "Start" and then "Computer."
Right-click on the DVD player icon and then choose "Explore."
Check to make certain you placed the DVD into a DVD drive.
If the HP Pavilion DVD drive ejects the disc or prompts you to insert a disc, it does not recognize the DVD.
You can also try inserting another DVD disc. If you do not see folders appear, such as VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TX, you may have a defective disc, or the DVD may not be compatible with your DVD drive, such as a Blu-ray disc.
Try a different DVD movie.
Insert a regular CD into the DVD drive to see whether HP can read it, after you have tried playing several DVDs.
If the drive can read the CD, it may not be the DVD drive.
Have the internal ribbon cable replaced if the drive cannot read the CD, or have the DVD drive replaced if a new cable does not help.
Reinstall DVD Software Windows 7
Click "Start," "All Programs," "Recovery Manager," and then "Recovery Manager." Click "Continue" if prompted by Windows 7. This will bring up the HP Recovery Manager window.
Click "Software Program Reinstallation" and then "Next."
This will bring up the HP Software Program Reinstallation window, which allows you to reinstall the programs that originally came with your HP Pavilion.
Click "Next" and then follow the instructions provided.
Restart your computer after the driver installation.
Select "Next" and follow the directions provided to recover and reinstall the DVD player software that came with your HP Pavilion.
Reinstall DVD Software Windows Vista
Click "Start," "All Programs," "PC Help and Tools" and then "Recovery Manager." This will bring up an HP window called Recovery Manager to help you recover HP Pavilion drivers and programs.
Click "Next" and then select "Yes" or "No" when prompted to perform a program recovery.
Select "Next" and follow the directions provided to recover and reinstall the DVD player software that came with your HP Pavilion.
HP Pavilion PC Laptop Blue Ray not working
Blu-ray disc technology continues to improve and advance, so simply having a Blu-ray player in your computer doesn't guarantee that all discs will play immediately.
The Hewlett Packard DV7 Entertainment Notebook has a Blu-ray player, but as the technology advances you have to keep the software and firmware on the system up-to-date to ensure compatibility.

Reboot your Pavilion notebook.
A minor miscommunication between the disc drive and Windows Vista or 7 may lead to a disc read error.
Rebooting clears your system's memory and forces Windows to reload all of your device drivers, which may resolve a minor kink.
Play your Blu-ray disc to see if the problem is solved.
Open QuickPlay and update it.
Double-click the "Update" button to open "Updates and Enhancements."
Double-click "Get the latest QuickPlay updates."
Select "Download now!" on the next screen and wait while the file downloads and installs.
Close and reopen QuickPlay and insert the Blu-ray disc again.

Update MediaStart regularly.
This program tracks updates for your Blu-ray player's firmware, the software coded onto the device to tell it what kinds of discs it can read.
Open MediaStart and select "Update your MediaStart." Updates are only listed when available, so if you don't see an update, check back in a few weeks.
Each update for the Blu-ray player enables you to play more recent discs, since some interactive features may not be compatible with older software.
Restart after each update.

Update your software on a disc-by-disc basis.
According to HP, some Blu-ray discs have special content protection and require new codes for you to play the movie.
These codes or disc-specific updates are stored on the disc.
If you are prompted to download a free update after inserting a disc, follow the prompts to do so. The updates will be different for each disc.

Check to make sure your player will play regular content if you continue to have issues with Blu-ray discs. It may be that the error is related to the drive, not the type of media.
Try a CD-ROM or a standard DVD to see if the disc responds.
If not, contact HP for a replacement or for drive-related troubleshooting.

I have an HP pavilion slimline s3600f desktop pc and the optical disk drive doesn't seem to be reading cd's or DVD's.


Check the Device Manager to make sure that the OS does not have any issues with the device. If there is an exclamation point ( ! ), then Windows has issue with it. If there is an " ! " then right-click on the device and select update driver.

If the drive shows in My Computer, right-click on the drive and select "eject" from the list. This will verify that the OS is talking to the device.

Check your BIOS settings to make sure that it appears in the BIOS and is not disabled.

Also, Microsoft recently released an update to disable Auto-Play on CD/DVD drives. If Auto-Play isn't working (due to this update), then put a music/movie cd/dvd into the drive and open Windows Media player and try to play the disc through there.

The drive may not be "broken" it just may be that auto-play has been turned off by Microsoft.

How do i play a blu ray dvd. I have put the disc in but nothing happens.


Hi,

You need Cyberlink PowerDVD software to run a BlueRay Disk. Normally, in Acer computer you should have Cyberlink PowerDVD software, please open the software and follow the below mentioned steps

To update the Cyberlink PowerDVD software:

1. Connect to the Internet.
2. Open the Cyberlink Power DVD application.
3. Click the arrow in the upper left hand corner of the window next to Cyberlink PowerDVD.
4. Click on Update Now
5. Follow the prompts to install the update.

Note: The update process may have to be repeated more than once to ensure the latest version is loaded on the computer.
Reminder: Blu-ray protection software prevents Blu-ray movies from being displayed on both the notebook LCD and an external monitor at the same time.

Thanks and regards,
Jitha
