This computer came with a Blu Ray disc player BDDVDRW CH30L BC56. So far it has operated well but I recently purchased an SHM SACD the drive does not recognize the disc at all. Is there a firmware update or same way to get the drive to recognize the disc.
The drive recognizes all other discs including regular SACD's but not the SHM SACD. I have tried several different software media solutions (Foobar, J River, Korg) that recognize DSD files and SACD's as well but when checking the drive itself in a "my PC" settings it does not show up as recognizing the disc at all. All software players say the drive is empty.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am able to play the SHM SACD on my Sony Blu Ray Player but want to be able to play the disc in my office on my computer as well.

Welcome to the HP Support Community!
I see you are having issues with your SHM-SACD format CD playing correctly. This is not a supported format.
Please note that SHM-SACDs are fully compatible with regular SACD players, but they do not play on standard CD players.

The drive in question is actually a blu ray player and I have used it for other SACD releases, just not SHM. Since it capable of play SACD's I was hoping there was a way, or firmware update that would enable the drive to recognize the newer format.
