Windows 7: E-sata external Blu-Ray drive - no sound on Laptop

E-sata external Blu-Ray drive - no sound on Laptop

I just purchased a new Sata Blu-ray writer and an external E-sata/usb enclosure. I have hooked it up to my HP laptop via my laptops dedicated E-sata port. Blu-ray movies play just fine, but the laptop produces no sound through its speakers when I use the E-Sata Blu-ray drive. The speakers work fine playing music and DVD's. What can be wrong?

Welcome to SF. I'm sorry for the issue and really have no idea why other than have you completely gone though the menu options for audio in the BluRay disk? Could for some reason it be defaulting to a mute or silent mode? Also many BluRays come with out of date firmware have you checked to make sure your up to date there as well?
