Blueray disk support RRS feed

  • Question

  • HI,

    I am trying out the Windows 8 developer preview I have a blue-ray drive on my system and Windows 8 doesn't recognize it as a Blue-ray. It is being detected as only DVD and it doesn't allow me to play any DVD movies. It is only giving me the option to use the drive as a back-up device.

    Any thoughts on this.

    Windows 8 experience so far is very good.

  • ZombieRaider,

    I am sorry to hear about your issues, have you downloaded the most current drivers for Windows 7 from the manufacturer’s website?  If not then give that a try to see if it fixes your issues.

    If that doesn't work, then try to install the drivers in compatibility mode to see if that resolves the problem.

    You can do this by:

    ·         Enter the Start screen

    ·         Move your mouse to the bottom left of the screen to expand the Charms section

    ·         Select Search

    ·         Type Compatibility

    ·         Click Settings in the right column

    ·         Click Run programs made for previous versions of Windows

    ·         Then follow the prompts and direct the troubleshooter to the installer for your computer's driver.

    Let us know if this helps.
