I've updated my Acer Aspire 6530 notebook and have suffered the same problem. Standard DVD's still play but not Blu-Ray. I've updated the driver via Device Manager and am told i have the latest driver.
I think the reason you're unable to play Blu-Ray discs is because you don't have the necessary 3rd-party codecs/software installed.
In other words, the reason Blu-Rays worked OK in Vista is because the manufacturers pre-installed the necessary codecs/software to do so.
So reinstall these codecs/software & you should be able to play Blu-Ray discs again. Sony/Acer must have supplied these on discs. If not, or they only work with Vista, you'll need to purchase this separately. G
Thanks for all your replies but i'm still not able to play blu-ray discs. I've have a scout around the internet and it appears a common problem. Most people are suggesting installing Acer Arcade Deluxe. This was installed on the laptop before i upgraded to Windows 7. But can i find it? No !! Any ideas?
The amount of users who would use Windows 7 to play Blu-Ray movies can surely be neglected at this point as most hardware Blu-Ray players for personal computers are expensive and not 100% compatible with all Blu-Ray features.
Users who want Blu-Ray playback on their computer systems can purchase a third party software which will not cost that much more than the projected $30 that universal Blu-Ray support would cost. Everyone else will be happy that they do not have to pay for a feature that they would never use.
