Hi all,
I purchased a LG Super Multi Blue BH10 Internal Blu-Ray Disc rewriter for my Gateway FX541S Computer.
As in the topic to this post, the exact model number is BH10LS30.
The LG Rewriter came with a "Super Multi Blue Install Disc." Which is listed as "Blu-Ray Disc Suite" version 6.0.2806

I went on to upgrade to PowerDVD 9 Ultra and now PowerDVD 10 Mark II, leaving the rest of the Suite alone.
When I go into downloads and upgrades it talks about OEM Bundled versions and Download or Boxed retail versions.
When I follow the bundled versions I see downloads for Dell, LG, Gateway, etc.

My question is, by veering off of this path and just downloading a version of 9 Ultra or now 10 Mark II.
Should these versions have a problem linking with and playing Blu-ray discs with my LG BH10?
If so, should I Un-Install everything and then reinstall my original Software disc, "Super Multi Blue Install Disc?
Right now some Blu-rays launch quickly and play while others are a bit more troublesome or will not play at all.

Thanks,
Ed

Hi Ed,

I have the same model BRD player as you do,BH10LS30 . I also have the same "Blu-Ray Disc Suite" version 6.0.2806 installed that came with the player. I have also installed the separate applications Power DVD 9 Ultra and Power DVD 10 Mark II 10.0.1830.51 on my system and I have no issues playing my BRD. I am running a Windows 7 64-bit platform with Crossfire ATI Radeon 5770 graphic cards and so far...knock on simulated wood grained veneer I haven't experienced any playback problems.

I am certainly not an expert but you may need to also try updating video card and sound drivers by going directly to the manufacturers website. It is not a guarantee, but it is a good first step at correcting your problem.

You might consider posting a DXDiag file so that others might take a closer look at what your system is. Just attach it in your post as a txt file.

Regards,

Kevin

Thanks for the response,
I tried to put in GhostRider and it will not load,
The PowerDVD 10 is in the Task Tray, the blue light on the front of the LG just blinks and Task Manager states that PowerDVD 10 is not responding.

I did a DxDiag and I will post it here.
Star Trek and Avatar will load right up!
I cannot get GhostRider, Woodstock, and some others to load.
The crazy part is that some load right up and others do not.
I am using a LG32LCD HDTV which is not 1920 x 1080 so I do not know if some discs are more sensitive to that than others.

Hi Ed,

Just so you know I am a self-proclaimed "not an expert"!!

But I do read the forums and it might be worth it to try an application that is referred to here....Slysoft's AnyDVD HD, which apparently allows problematic discs to be played. There is a free trial for it and it is a subscription based application. I have heard many times that it allows the disc to be played, where it wouldn't before.

It's worth a shot!

Here is the link to the app:
http://www.slysoft.com/en/anydvdhd.html

Let me know how it works out for you if you decide to try it.

Hi Kevin,
Thanks for the try...I did download Any DVD HD and the net result was 1 Blu-ray
that I could not play before, Mel Gibson's "Edge of Darkness" I could play.

GhostRider it kept saying that the Blu-Ray was seen and would be available soon.
Ghost Rider however never came up and PowerDVD 10 lost interest too.
The rest of my Blu-ray's that I could not play before, Any DVD did not even see the DVD,
it said that no Disc was even in my LG BH10 LOL!

I thought that I had an answer, see Below:
Blu-Rays that Launch immediately and play perfectly are:

Avatar 1.78:1
Jeff Beck 1.78:1
ChickenFoot ?
Beer League 1.78:1
Big White 1.78:1
Coraline 1.85:1
Total Recall 2.35:1
Matrix 2.40:1
Except for Total Recall and Matrix they are all in the 1.78 to 1.85:1 Format

My Blu-rays that will not play and their formats are:

Terminator Salvation 2.4:1
Sherlock Holmes 1.85:1
Ghost Rider 2.40:1
WoodStock ?
Night at the Museum 2.35:1
Edge of Darkness 2.4:1

I was thinking that it is a Format thing until Total Recall and the Matrix played.

What do all of the Blu-rays that DO play have in common and what DO all of the Blu-ray's that don't play,
have in common?
Therein lies the answer to my Puzzling predicament!
It would be one thing if NO Blu-ray's played but I have 8 that DO and 6 that DO NOT!
I guess I'm ahead of the game LOL!

Maybe someone from CyberLink will see this and figure it out for me.

I have a HP Pavillion Elite Model 112y that came with a Blu-ray drive already installed
that plays every Blu-ray that I have.
It uses it's HP Media Smart Software for it's Blu-Ray's, DVD, Pictures, etc.
It really does a Great Job..I have been very impressed with my first HP..Knock on Wood.
So at the moment what I can't play on my Gateway I can play on the HP.

I'll be interested to find out what it is, because the hardware in my computer should play it all without a hiccup!

Thank you so much for at least taking some time out of your Sunday to try and help me!

Have a Great Week,
Ed
PS. I uninstalled Any DVD HD
