the driver is the correct driver!try uninstalling it from the device manager and then reboot your computer to install it again!my sister had a sony vaio that did this and the drive was defective!
Hi! Thanks for the response and the info.. it's helpful to know that the driver is the correct one. Do you know about how to update the firmware by any chance?
I tried uninstalling Powerdvd and installed a freebee DAPlayer and it was able to read some DVD's sucessfully but not others. It is consistant in relation to the DvD's that it prefers so it definitely was the software causing the problem. I don't mind buying good software (I hate buying crapware to find the good) so if you know of something that plays Bluray DvD's across the board please let me know. I appreciate the help.
Thanks again cheers!
