I have a G750JX, it plays some blu-ray's but not newer ones. AsusDVD tells me I need to update my Blu-ray player requires an update in order to play the disk. (It is Firefly, which I would like to watch).

I have tried everything I know of, tried downloading new blu-ray playing software, a number of different ones. Some simply don't work and do nothing. Some give me the same message, which is unhelpful.

I have tried VLC and using the work around for blu-ray's, it just crashes.

I can't find any required updates for my blu-ray drive, neither can the auto update program.

Any help would be appreciated.

Sorry, but you had updated Asus DVD?

Asus DVD is just Cyberlink's PowerDVD10, it is fully up to date. I even downloaded a trial of PowerDVD14 and that gives the same message. I think the issue is a driver based issue for the drive itself. But then I can't find drivers for it, and the Asus auto updater says everything is up to date. So maybe it is a codec issue?

May you try this (http://www.windvdpro.com/it/products/windvd/pro/default.html)?

The problem you may be running into is that, due to licensing restrictions, old versions of PowerDVD will not play Blu-ray discs past a certain year/time frame. There's a section on Cyberlink's website that has the version history and reflects up to what it can play. Anything beyond that date is likely to not work.

From NZMaverick's post (n3): "I even downloaded a trial of PowerDVD14 and that gives the same message."
