    Sounds like a missmatch of drive and mainboard.

    tried the board off the blu ray player with a working blu ray player and it worked ok so the board does match the motherboard but still doing the same so thinking the lazer must be knackered or can anyone think of anything else i can try

    ps the only other thing i changed on the blu ray drive was the thing that spins the disk could it be something to do with that

    thanks jay
