Is it blue-ray compatible dvd drive? You need the compatible dvd drive to read the blue-ray discs . If its compatible one then it could be because of the device firmware. It's also possible you damaged the drive while working on it.

BLU-RAY doesn't works on the ordinary player, you need a BLU-RAY player for that. A standard DVD player is only designed to read standard DVDs, so a Blu-Ray of HD-DVD will not work in a standard player. You need Blu-ray Player in order to view Blu-ray Disc. There is one single layer Blu-ray disc and one double-layer Blu-ray disc . A single-layer Blu-ray disc, which is roughly the same size as a DVD, can hold up to 27 GB of data, A double-layer Blu-ray disc can store up to 50 GB, enough to hold about 4.5 hours of high-definition video or more than 20 hours of standard video.
