Blue ray with TSSTcorp&Prod_CDDVDW_SN-S083A


No, the Samsung SN SO83A does not include the laser that reads a Blue Ray disc. It can read and write DVDs, DVD-DL, and CDs. The Samsung SH-B083L/BSBP is an internal Blue Ray reader and DVD writer; however, it is not a slim optical drive and may not fit a laptop. There are some SATA slim blue ray drives from other manufacturers. You will need to check the size drive that will fit your case. A better option might be to get an external blue ray drive. (Note: any drive listed as OEM will not include Blu-ray playback software.)

I hope this helps.

My ps3 will not read my games , but it will read dvd's


Blu-rays utilise a blue laser within the drive and DVDs use a red laser.
Sounds like the blu-ray/games reading blue laser has died and it'll need replacing.

Why won't my console play blu-ray movies


The Wii doesnt play Blue-Ray "BD" Movies, only the PS3 does, also the Wii doesn't play DVD's.
You can get the Wii to play DVD's by cracking the system by placing files on a SD Card, but your Wii will never play Blue-Ray movie because the system doesn't have the blue laser in the cd drive, sorry.

Have a nice day

Ps3 blue ray will not play. how do i correct this?


first, try to play other blue ray discs. if the other discs work then its just the disk. if its still doesn't work then it should be something internal and you will need to call sony about that.

Won't load blue ray game


The blue-ray inside your ps3 could be dead. I suggest try playing a DVD-Movie. If this doesn't work than it is dead. To replace it you would either need to call Sony or open the ps3 (This will void your warranty), locate the blue-ray, and find out the model and look in ebay to replace it.

I put in a blu ray disc but it is not playing in any media player and the disc drives do not recognise that a disc has been entered


Unless the drive in your laptop is a blu-ray drive, it won't recognize a blu-ray disc. A blu-ray drive can recognize and play a regular DVD, but it doesn't work the other way around.

If your computer is indeed fitted with a blu-ray drive, the laser lens may need cleaning. On a laptop, you usually have clear access to the lens with the tray open, so you can try cleaning it with a cotton swab moistened with lens cleaner. Or the disc itself may have a problem. Try another disc and see if the trouble continues.

If the computer doesn't have a blu-ray drive and you will frequently want to play blu-ray discs, get a USB external blu-ray drive. It's easier to find one of those than to locate a suitable blu-ray replacement drive for a laptop. There are many variations of drives used in laptops, but an external drive will always be compatible. And you'll be able to use it with other computers not blu-ray equipped.

Dvd player can't play blue ray disk


If you have an earlier model Compaq, it most likely a DVD ROM player. Check the printing on the drive tray, if it says DVD ROM then it cannot play Blu ray disks.

The ps3 won't recognize that a game or blue ray is there


If your system doesn't recognize blue ray games or blue ray dvds but still plays normal dvds and music cds your lens is dirty. I had this problem and my factory and store warranty are up. I decided to take the machine apart and see what I could do.

If you look online there are several videos how to take the machine apart. I opened the machine up, took out the blue ray drive and opened up the drive. Once you remove the cover from the blue ray drive, take some rubbing alcohol and a Q-tip and clean the lens. I actually used my t-shirt to wipe it and blew on the lens and it did the trick. Before you assemble everything, plug the drive in and pop in a game to see if it works (or you will have to remove all the screws again.) This should solve your problem. If your drive doesn't recognize any media, your laser might be shot.

Once you tear into it and figure out how everything works your realize it's not very complicated. Otherwise you'll end up spending about 150 bucks for Sony to do the same thing.

Pioneer DBP-51FD Blu-Ray


I bought mine four days ago and it would not pay the new James Bond Blue-Ray. The screen said your player needs an update. I downloaded the firmware, and it still did not work. I took the disc down to Best Buy and it played fine on an identical DBP 51-FD. Their tech came out with a replacement player and it played fine. Now, however, it will not play the DVD Happily Ever After 2, eve after the firmware update. Strangely enough, the other player played that DVD fine.

In other words, take it back and get another one.
