Blu-Ray Not Working After UpgradeNov 8, 2009
I upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate and now my Blu-Ray drive in my Sony VGN-FZ180E notebook pc will not work with Blu-Ray disks. Seems the device driver for the Mat****a BD-MLT-UJ-220 Blu-Ray drive has now become a standard Microsoft 6.1.7600.16385 driver from June 21, 2006. When I click to update the driver it says I have the latest.
I tried Sony's update for the Mat****a drive dated 03/04/2009 firmware update 1.04080723 but got an error message that their F/W loader does not apply to the DVD/CD-RW in my pc. Sony tech support is no help at all. They told me they don't support Windows 7 in my model. That response was a shock to me because it is a 2 year old powerful notebook that originally had Vista. I guess anybody that upgrades to Windows 7 voids the technical support they can get from the PC manufacturer. Any way to force new firmware onto the Blu-Ray drive?
