nope, not that either. since i can read the bluray disc on a 13" laptop (and the HP one is 17". i guess 17" provides more power than a 13" one).
i even tried your theory and connected the data cable to my HP laptop and the power supply cable to my desktop. still the same.
i guess it has to do something with bios or 64bit system... any thoughts?
