DVD drive problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • I bought a Panasonic UJ-210s and after installation the drive will recognize CD's and DVD's, but not Blu-ray DVD's.  I have tried reinstalling the drive, updating the driver, updating the firmware, and I installed the Xbox 360 HD DVD driver (I read that might help).  

    When I load a Blu-ray disc I get some clicks and brief buzzing, then more clicks, then nothing.  The movies that I tried to play are "Scott Pilgram" and "Kick-Ass" rented from Netflix.

    I have a Dell E1705 and I am running XP SP3.

    I'm worried I either bought a defective drive or even a bogus one.  I bought it cheap($129.99) from 365laptop.us, but it was sent form China.


    If this is the wrong forum, please excuse my inexperience on this website and point me in the right direction.


    Thank You
