I have an LG Blu Ray/HD-DVD/DVD-RW Combo Drive that has played every Blu Ray I put into it. I only have a small collection, maybe 20 movies and rented maybe a dozen. I use Power DVD 7 Ultra that came with the drive.

Then the problem is probably hardware then bummer
Try ripping the disc, and mount it via Virtualclonedrive.

Hi,
I remember a few days ago, while surfing the web, I ran into an article about Blu ray problems in Win7.
One of the posters said the built in drivers that Microsoft provides are old and gave the following link for newer ones.:
PX Engine - Description and Download

Supposely these will fix "most" problems, I dunno, might be worth a shot.
Are the default drivers from Microsoft made by Roxio?
Lol I'm just surprised I remembered the link!

Also I have heard problems Playing thru Media Center concerning Blu ray/DVD. Seems disabling interface navigation sound in Media Center fixes some playback problems...lol!
Very strange, but true, I saw that bug fix on the official Microsoft Win7 forums.
