Windows 7: Help: Windows 7 explorer won't open any of my Blu Ray Discs

Help: Windows 7 explorer won't open any of my Blu Ray Discs

Hello guys.

Does anybody know a way to restore the default registry parts for your CD, DVD, Blu Ray Drive in Windows 7? a windows tool perhaps that will restore this part or restore the default Blu Ray drive Filters or etc.

I was mucking about with the windows 7 registry that deals with your Bluray drive and now Windows 7 explorer won't open any of my Blu Ray Discs. Not even retail ones open now when they did before.

Windows blu ray players are still able to play them fine but they won't open within explorer anymore because of whatever I done.

I have tried removing my Bluray drive from the Device Manager and let windows reinstall it again but this doesn't fix the problem.

Thanks a lot for your help.

Nevermind, I found the problem.

Originally I found a grayed out driver in the Device Manager under Non-Plug and play Drivers called Fs_Rec that didn't seem to be getting used and windows saying something about the device is not connected, not attached and (Code 45)

I did a search but could not find any information on what this driver is for and so I remove all registry entries for this driver so it would no longer display in the Non-Plug and play Drivers section or load up.

I have now discovered, removing this driver even though windows doesn't seem to use it, will screw up the windows from being able to open Blu Ray Drive contents within the windows explorer.

I have restored the registry entries for the Fs_Rec driver and now Windows 7 explorer opens my Blu Ray Discs without problems again.
