Default LG Blu Ray Drive

Kinda need some help guys. I have a LG GBW- H10N Blu-Ray drive that was purchased recently and have installed it into my Vista 64 Machine.

First time it was picked up as a CD/DVD drive but showed an error in the device manager of a device driver not loading.

I removed it from the device manager and reloaded. This time it tried loading the device drivers but falied and no longer showed the drive in my computer. I checked the device manager and found it there but with the same fault of a device driver hasn't loaded.

I used the update driver wizard from within device manager and it determined that it was using the best driver and yet still showed an error and still refused to show it in my computer

I then went onto LG support who told me to update the firmware which I did as the next firmware patch had better vista compatibility, but still no joy.

I have now had this fault for two weeks and I am frustrated as I have read that other users iof this drive have it working perfectly with Vista 64. I need to do something quickly as time is running out to return the part....

Please Help.

I hate when that sorta stuff happens, more recently i tried installing a firewire card and my computer refused to show it in device manager. It sounds to me like the blu-ray drive is faulty, one thing..have you tried checking the master/slave settings on the drive? not sure if it would make much difference but worth a go.
Why does ending task on windows, never actually end task ?!

You might try taking it to your local professional as they can do quite a few things that might help. I usually recommend you just buy it from the pro and let them install it. That way, if the installation is a little weird it falls on them instead of you.

Look into the registry under HKLM>SYSTEM>CurrentcontrolSet>Services>cdrom and make sure the start entry on the right has a 3 in paraenthsis if it does not then double click it and change it to a 3. Also right click cdrom and make sure the system permission has full control. If you change anything and reboot the computer because that service only starts when the computer starts.

Also you can try and uninstall your device from device manager and tell windows to relook for it and see if starts without the exclamation point.
