Windows 7: BD Drive no longer playing Blu Ray

06 Mar 2017   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit
BD Drive no longer playing Blu Ray

I have an HTPC running Win 7 32-bit and a Liteon BD drive iH212. All firmware and drivers are correct and it always played Blu Ray discs with no problem. I have been using Arcsoft, no longer supported, and downloaded several trial versions of Blu Ray software, like WinDVD 11. It Installs fine as a Window Media Center plugin. Plays DVDs fine.

But when I put in a genuine Blu Ray disc now, it loads, even gets to the FBI warning screen, and then I get a "WINDVD has stopped working" error message and the program closes. I've tried a few other programs - same thing.

After spending some time on this, it occurred to me that I haven't played a blu ray in some time - not since upgrading to Service Pack 1/2. Could that have something to do with this? Incorrect codecs? Digital certs or permissions missing?

If so, how do I fix the problem?

Thanks in advance for any help!

Hello Sugarfree now I am not real sure of what you mean by that,and can you please follow this
Now before we can help we do need to know what is in your machine so please do this System Info - See Your System Specs
or either enter the specs of your system in your forum profile the specs will appear when we click on that little box bottom left of the post screen it is for me the preferable option as it is easy. As you may appreciate it is very hard when you donít know what one is working with for example a diesel or petrol engine.
*(pretyped to save time)

After that please run these
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
Disk Check < if necessary include the /f switch and if this does not make any improvement then just run this switch instead /r in the command line as per Option2
Run these in safe mode and the sfc often best run for two to three runs Ė you can leave out the /r switch in ckdsk if you feel it not necessary

Now one thing that does come to mind if I assume the service packs are what I think you mean is to do a system restore to before you installed those packs.

But lets get the specs done first.

Blu Ray players can only play B/R disk if you use the needed program. I have 3 B/R optical drives and they all use this well.
