Need a driver for my Blu-ray drive and can't seem to find one. Called the company that made it and they told me it'd be $80 for the driver . It is a LITE-ON model iHES208-09 2...any help will be appreciated.
They want 80$ for the software package which is prob a bluray player software etc..
What issue are you having? Why would you need a driver? Windoze normally has the specific driver or at least a universal driver that would work. I don't have any experience with bluray players, but I don't see a reason why the system wouldn't at the very least recognize it as a cd-rom..
What Operating System is the driver needed for? Does the drive currently work/ being detected by the Operating system? If so, what Issue are you having that makes you think you need a specific driver?
The drive is recognized as a CD/DVD-ROM but when a Bluray movie is inserted into the drive it wont play it nor recognize that the movie is even there. So to my guess I think I need a specific driver or something since Windows doesnt even provide them.
Well, it seems the Drive is working if you are able to play the other movies/media on the drive.
Can you put in a Blu-Ray disc and then via My Computer explore the disk contents? Or does it say unrecognizable/no media??
When you insert a BD disc and without clicking on anything, does anything happen? Or a window pop up asking what to do?? (if the autoplay is turned on)
I'm guessing you just don't have a blu-ray player/software on your PC. so it can't read the discs in there. Currently there doesn't seem to be a blu-ray codec (I haven't really searched yet). Also Windows Media Player can't play a blu-ray disc. Nor can some others because of the BD protections.
Search for a Blu-ray player, download a trial version or free one if it exists and see if you can play it then.. I think that 80$ was for the software player, not a driver.. But that software might be required to play. FRom quick reading, not many PC systems can play the BD movies directly. But that might be dated info.
