    This first started yesterday i updated to try the beta,Redfox said the drive was disabled,so had to reinstall and reboot,now it wont pick up any bluray at all,only dvd,maybe isn't a redfox only problem,but I cant think of who else is as helpful.I had a bluray in drive and redfox icon was greyed out,but it just sat idle,i could not eject,so had to reboot. Normal dvds play,rip fine,please anyone any ideas?

    Does the drive read other discs fine? DVD's? If it does but no BD's. It might be a faulty drive. Check the firmware revision, latest is 1.03
    Code:

    I'd start with checking the cabling

    the drive sais it's "ready to work" to anydvd, but thinks there's no disc in the drive

    Code:
    0.63s: unit ready failed, sense 2:3a:1
    
    0.63s: unit ready failed, sense 2:3a:1
    That said, a GREY fox icon means that while anydvd is running, it's not "active". Rightclick the fox try icon. on the popup menu make sure "activate anydvd" is selected. Then go into the main GUI > drives > selection and make sure anydvd is enabled for that drive

    other than that, maybe @James will have some other ideas?

    No, it says "I am not ready to work. There is no disc inside me."

    You can try to clean the lens with a cleaning disc but chances are high that the BluRay laser is broken and only the DVD laser still works. Cleaning discs clean all lenses since the lenses are positioned next to each other. Ideally you use a disc based on CD since these are the least sensitive ones. This is the sensitivity range from low to high: CD /DVD / BluRay / BluRay UHD (due to fingerprints etc., otherwise same as BluRay)

    Anyway.. you didn't mention the drive brand and model. If it's a LG you can try to flash to an ASUS which based on my experience reads better.

    Does it behave badly with all discs? I have the LG WH16NS40, and there are some discs it just refuses to read. The discs read fine in any of my Lite-On drives, though.

    In the end yes,was exactly that.A sign the laser was on its way out,It was picking up some discs,not others,normal DVD's were fine,BLU-RAY it picked up some,then none,they said well I called that its a different laser that reads standard DVD to Blu-ray (which i didn't know) I had exact same drive replaced for that reason only last year,and I'm sure this one.
    ,so went with a different maker this time.Now i need to change the firmware as came with 3.01
