    Hi all, I'm new here but I really hope someone can help me. I recently bought a External blu ray writer from Ebay. It's listed as a Hitachi lg bt10f. When trying to install it on my Windows 7 laptop, via 2 USB cables, my laptop started searching for drivers for the device. But instead the only thing it found was as a initio combo device class, but when I put a blu ray into the device, nothing showed up under my computer or in device manager. So I restarted, plugged the device in again, then it installed a FJ Camera.

    I really don't understand what is going on, as i can't find it in device manager and it doesn't show up under 'my computer'. I also can't seem to find any drivers for Hitachi lg bt10f. I really hope someone can help as I haven't got a clue what to do.

    Load up your Blu-ray software, and play the disk.
