  1. HI guys, my pc isnt reading dvds in my Blu Ray dvd Drive that is actually in my pc or in a USB one I have.

    Both are in perfect order and the blu ray is near enough brand new, in device manager its showing a yellow triangle with an exclamation mark.

    Any idea's how to fix this? I have tried everything, unplugging the drive in the computer and plugging it in again, going into the registry as for the USB one I have tried every USB port in my pc and still nothing.

    Daemon tools dosnt work either on my pc so it has to be something with the System?

    Thanks Jay.

    Check Windows Update for an update. Hardware updates are usually listed under Optional Updates.

    Uninstall all 3 through device manager. Reboot, see if that fixes it. Optical drives use generic drivers, so they will be replaced on reboot and things should be ok. Daemon tools can screw with things.. I remember that from when I used it, but I forget the 'fix'. It might be worth considering uninstalling daemon tools, rebooting, and then installing Virtual Clone Drive instead...
