Blue-ray PlayerI bought this player several months ago. Played one dvd and it worked fine.. Several months later tried to play another movie but it would not play. Now my wife is telling me she wanted to play a movie on her laptop and she asked me about a disk to install this player in her laptop... I told her there was no disk with the package. We have the box and paper work but there was on disk... Is it possible to get this disk. Why the fist movie played I don't know... But it played through just fine and I would recommend it if I can get this problem solved...

AvoidThis was only used a couple of times and simply will not work after a recent Windows update. I have spent some time trying to sort it out, but the help pages are no use. The firmware download will not open. There should be a complete guide to updating the drivers and firmware. I will not be buying another LG drive.

Quits in middle of playGot this for BluRay playback - seemed okay - but now while watching a DVD it quits while watching - and starts back at loading the main menu of DVD - its a unreliable drive and it was more exspenive than other makes - disappointed - LG Customer Service wasnt much help either - they had me push the Power Button to reset this unit - had to say, This is not a desktop player, its a mobile reader writer, there is no Power Button - guy said, Oh we dont deal with this type, have to send you to another department - then at transfer they disconnected - (all this after first gave them the model number and serial number ) -

Am I able to play original DVDs and Blu-Ray discs (not ripped and burned), on this device? I have a TCL television with Roku Media Player, but it can’t read these disks (reads CDs just fine). It’s in “TV Mode,” so that’s not the problame...

I'm a little confused on the USB cable, is it Mini-USB on one end and standard A-type USB on the other that plugs into the computer?
Asked by: mediaguy333
That is correct. The USB port on the LG 3D Blu-ray Disc Playback & M-DISC™ Support, Model # BP50NB40 is a mini-USB port so the cable that plugs into the drive has to have a mini USB on that end...^IFV
