Windows 7: Blu-Ray not working after Windows 7 Upgrade

Blu-Ray not working after Windows 7 Upgrade

I upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate and now my Blu-Ray drive in my Sony VGN-FZ180E notebook pc will not work with Blu-Ray disks. Seems the device driver for the Mat****a BD-MLT-UJ-220 Blu-Ray drive has now become a standard Microsoft 6.1.7600.16385 driver from June 21, 2006. When I click to update the driver it says I have the latest. I tried Sony's update for the Mat****a drive dated 03/04/2009 firmware update 1.04080723 but got an error message that their F/W loader does not apply to the DVD/CD-RW in my pc. Sony tech support is no help at all. They told me they don't support Windows 7 in my model. That response was a shock to me because it is a 2 year old powerful notebook that originally had Vista. I guess anybody that upgrades to Windows 7 voids the technical support they can get from the PC manufacturer. Any way to force new firmware onto the Blu-Ray drive?

Welcome to windows 7 forum. Remove the drive and reinstall using the I will choose option and use the Have Disk software option so that you can use your specific driver for your device.

Thanks Adrian but after further investigation I don't think it is the device driver that is the problem. Maybe it is a problem with the Corel Win DVD software. I also have a new desktop with Windows 7 and a Blu-Ray drive. I checked the Device Manager on that computer and it is the same Microsoft driver from 2006 that is on my Sony notebook. The desktop came with CyberLink PowerDVD BD edition and Blu-Ray movies play fine. I guess I should post on the Seven Forums software compatibility section.
