I have a Vaio F series laptop with a Pioneer Blu-ray internal drive running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. After upgrading to Windows 8.1 the Blu-ray drive cannot recognize any DVD or Blu-ray media. On clicking on the D: drive in Windows Explorer this message is flashed:
Format Disc/ You do not have sufficient rights to perform this operation.
I tried unsuccessfully with different players like WinDVD Pro 11, PowerDVD 13 and VLC 2.1. All are saying:
No DVD/Media in drive. My internal drive is Pioneer BD RW BDR TD03. I also tried to update the firmware from Device Manager, but it's saying:
Your driver is up to date. Do I have to purchase an external Blu-ray RW for playing the DVD/Blu-Ray discs or revert back to Windows 7?
