    So I have a Game of Thrones Blu-ray video disc here which I want to watch on my desktop but it the desktop won't read it. I've tried both Windows and OSX and both won't recognize it. I also updated the LG Blu-ray reader to latest firmware (dated 2014) and still no go.

    As a test, I've tried other Blu-ray video discs and no problems with those. Also as a test, I put the Game of Thrones disc on a friend's PS3 and no problems playing the disc.

    Any ideas what could be wrong and how to fix it?

    Thanks!

    Have you tried VLC Player on PC?

    Is it a dual layer BluRay Disk?

    Check what it is and compare to your player specs.

    Do other BluRay disks work OK?

    seems I spoke to soon.

    I tried several Blu-Ray discs and none of them is recognized. I downloaded a trial copy of DVDFab and also used VLC to test.

    I also tried several DVDs and they can be read fine.

    Summary:

    Blu-Ray drive cannot read Blu-Ray discs but can read DVDs.

    Perhaps the drive needs replacing?
