I have an LG BH16NS40 internal DVD/Blu-Ray player, but I cannot get it to play Blu-Rays. I have updated it to the latest firmware.
It came with some "CyberLink" software but I uninstalled it because it was really obnoxious, running all the time, installing services, using the network connection and basically being CPU hogging spyware. Currently I am trying to use Aiseesoft Blu-Ray Player, a commercial software product, but it always reports "Invalid Blu-Ray File" when I try to load a disk.
Note that Media Player Classic DOES play regular DVDs using the same drive, so it can read and utilize the drive for regular DVDs, so the drive is definitely working.
OS is Windows XP (device properties show disks are being recognized by the player at a basic level:
These are the installed drivers:
How can I further diagnose this problem?
Note that I have installed AnyMP4 now, for-pay software that looks practically identical to Aiseesoft, and it DOES work (albeit with occasional jerkiness). AnyMP4 did not install any new drivers so the "answers" below that say I "need a new driver" or different operating system are wrong.
The bottom line here is I need a better understanding of the media player programmatic flow chain so I can understand what is going on. I need an answer from somebody who knows what they are talking about and has, for example, programmed a DVD player. Advice like "upgrade your OS" or reboot your PC 15 times is not helpful. I am trying to understand under the hood.
