Windows Media Player does not play Blu Ray discs. You need 3rd party software such Cyberlink Power DVD. Follow that link and you can download a 30 day trial.

There may be a issue with the assembly, blu-ray plays with more precision and speed, for some reason it is not slowing down to play the regular DVD's may be a padder motor problem.

Standard DVDSs are read by a red laser while blue ray DVDs are read by a blue laser (hence the name). The blue laser diode is likely to be faulty and therefore standard dvds work but blue ray dvds do not. This is not an easily obtainable or replaceable part.

Does it do the same thing with every blu-ray, or just one?
It sounds like a dirty lense or disc.

Blu ray wont play


That machne does not have a bluray drive & that is the simple reason why you can not play a blu ray disc. This is what your drive supports.
Plays Standard or multiregion DVD's & Audio CD's. Records DVDs 8x & CDs 24x & Dual Layer Super Multi. No Bluray or HD DVD,

If you were sold the machine as a bluray laptop then take it back & demand your refund.
