I have a LG Blu-Ray writer, a WH10LS30. My OS is Windows 7, 64-bit. After the last three updates received from Windows Update (though I don't know them to be the cause), my CDs are not being recognized as such in Windows.
The CDs are viewable in Windows Explorer, and I can click on the .cda files, and Windows Media Player will come up, but it won't play anything. The size of the files is shown as zero.
If I open up a different program, like Blaze Media Pro, then I can play the files just fine.
So the Blu-Ray drive is working fine, but there is still a problem. This is pretty hard to look up on the Internet, since most people posting have drive problems.
I've run the System File Checker and it did what repairs it felt it needed to do, but to no avail. Troubleshooter didn't help at all.
