Windows 7: blue ray disk drive reading disk issues with windows 7

blue ray disk drive reading disk issues with windows 7

i jest replaced a dead dvd rom with a ASUS BW-12B1ST Blu-Ray Writer 12X BD-R 16X DVD+R SATA
and the bios see it, windows 7 see's it and installs the driver but every time i try to access the drive the explorer will go not responding and when i use task manager to shutdown the system hangs on logging off and will sit there forever.

what is odd is if i have a disk in and boot the computer it will see the disk and show and work perfectly with that disk until i remove the disk and insert a new disk (this only happens with audio c.d's, dvd's data disks works perfect and blue rays are untested.

What a coincidence -- I have exactly the same BlueRay drive as you. However, my motherboard has two sets of SATA connectors and I have the BlueRay connected to the one that is NOT set as AHCI. I found when I had it connected to one of the AHCI connectors, I could not boot using it and had problems using it otherwise.

i only have one chip set with sata ports on it and the system does run AHCI because of the SSD hard drive setup i run.

i also tested the drive in a box with no AHCI and no issue, so i ordered a new drive from Liteon and will sell this one or something. really i jest need dvd reading and maybe some burning from time to time.

SATA Hard Drive Not Reading Disk (Options?)

I'm having slight issues with my hard disk drive?
My hard disk drive is acting weird. Anytime I download a program, I lose space on it, normal, right? But the thing is, when I uninstall some programs I would get back my space, sometimes WAY more space than intended. But if I also uninstall some programs too, the disk space remains the same,...
