Blu-ray drive won't read certain blu-rays (Sony BWU-500S)
I have a Sony BWU-500S blu-ray player on Windows 7 and while it does seem to play most blu-rays fine, there are certain ones that I have a problem with.
The ones with a problem, I can't open them with Totalmedia Theater (cannot open disk) and I get an error when I try to rip with AnyDVD. Creating an MKV with makeMKV does work on the disks with issues but I don't want to have to create an MKV just to watch every disk that won't load.
I have tried updating my drivers but that doesn't help. Is this drive out of date? I think I bought it 1.5-2 years ago. Do I need to buy a new one?

Try updating the drives firmware first. They are up to 2.63 I beleive
I've tried that, but same issue. Is it possible the drive is out of date? Or there's some sort of protection on the disk?
