Laptop drive not reading Blu-rays

Frequently when I put a Blu-Ray disc in my laptop, the drive will not recognize it. SOMETIMES I can drop in a different blu-ray disc (like ''300'') and it will recognize this, then subsequently recognize a disc I was having trouble with. Other blu-rays aren't recognized no matter what I do. I have updated everything I can (can't find any info about the specfic drive or drivers/firmware though).

Drive f wont play bluray dvd says no disc in drive


I don't think that model came with a blu-ray drive. I would look at the side of the drive and make sure it specifically says Blu-Ray on it......unless you get a blu-ray drive as a special option, I doubt your laptop has one. Thus, it would not be able to play blu-ray disks.

Good Luck

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.

I am trying to copy a ps3 game to my computer,but the dvd drive in my computer wont read the disc.Any ideas


The playstation 3 game format is in Blu-ray... but also a special format of Blu-ray to keep people from making illegal copies of the disc. Also the disc is formatted in a way that a PC will not recognize the disc unless the drive has been modified illegally. A standard DVD drive will not recognize a Blu-Ray disc.

Hi,

  1. Go into device manager and uninstall the Blu-ray drive, then restart the laptop.
  2. If that doesn't work, check the firmware is up to date, if not update it, if it is then try to force an overwrite of the current firmware as is maybe corrupt.
  3. Check your mainboard bios is up to date
  4. Last resort is to do a FULL recovery
If you have done all of the above and its still the same, then unfortunately the drive is defective and needs replacing - If its an OEM laptop then this is quite a common problem as the drives are mass produced.

Thanks

DVD drive won't recognize discs


Does your cd drive show up in my computer?
for a game disc, you dont need any codecs at all to run it. those are for recognizing certain formats of video and audio usually found in downloaded musics and movies. let me know.

I have a HP Pavillion DV6920 EA laptop and when I insert a blu-ray dvd into it the laptop can not read the disc


Oh, does it have a Blu-Ray reader? Most laptops are made with a DVD burner max. Check your drive. Blu-Ray is new and too high quality. It needs special players (mostly very expensive) and they cannot be played on normal home DVD players.

The Sony PlayStation 3 is arguably the best Blu-Ray player, apart from being a gaming console.
