Thanks for the replies.I did check out those firmwares but none seem to match my blu ray drive.
I have registered on that website so I will ask them if they know of anything.
I have also contacted Asus technical support, but I haven't heard back yet, this was yesterday.
Any more ideas? This problem with my laptop is just sad, I used to have a dedicated sony blu rayplayer but it had done the same exact thing almost but last year with a different movie.
