Windows cannot read from this disk.
« on: March 09, 2009, 12:06:44 am »
   purchased the model# brhc-316u2-us, sn#15284580713853 combo blu-ray/hd dvd external drive and I keep getting this error message"

Windows cannot read from this disk.  The disk might be corrupted, or it could be using a format that is nopt compatible with Windows". It will play standard dvd okay, but no blu-ray or hd dvd's. Read here that software should have come with this drive to play blu-ray/hd dvd's, but Nero 8 software only to burn disc's.

Please help! Both computers are running vista 32bit os.

No, the Nero software will also play them using it's Showtime program. You'd want to make sure you installed all components of that software suite, not just certain portions.
