Question Blu-Ray drive won't read disc. (Help?)

I have a Blu-Ray, The Crazies (2010), that will not work on my computer. The computer won't even recognize that a disc is in the drive. All of my other discs work fine, so I doubt it's an issue with the disc drive. The disc is in good condition, no scratches or smudges so I'm unsure as to why it won't read it. Could it be a DRM thing, or a firmware issue? Everything is up-to-date as far as I know.

There was an issue I think with that disc on certain players. Here's an old thread on it.

I have had blemish free BRDs work at one time and then a year or so later they do not work. This media is not bullet proof by any means. My guess is the disc is bad.

For all its worth, PC drives will have the lens dirt because of the ways air goes through the PC case. Some drives are more protected than others but it is not a possibility that can be discarded when discs are not read.

The cleaning process is a bit of a pain in the neck, because one has to disassemble the drive to have access to the lens. But in the end it may correct reading errors and/or burning issues.
