A red laser DVD player cannot read a BD (Blu-ray Disc).

You may have burned stuff from the B-R onto a standard DVD and have it readable in a DVD player, but I've never heard of any red laser player that could read a BD.

Lion not playing Blu-Ray discs (not movies, but storage)

I stored a bunch of DOCUMENTS & PERSONAL FLIP CAMERA HOME MOVIES and such on blu-ray discs because of the larger storage capacity, but ever since I upgraded from Snow Leopard to Lion, I can't get it to even read the discs, but instead it just spits right back out.

I don't have a blu-ray drive installed on my Macbook Pro, yet was able to play the discs on the computer's internal drive because it wasn't written in blu-ray format, but in standard format, just saved on a blu-ray disc. So, if I saved documents or even a standard movie, I could get it to play from the computer's drive. I just hate the inconvenience of having to pull out and plug in the external drive, which means my mobility is also limited.

Is there something I need to install for it to read again?

Well, they have now since all posts were basically the same info.

There still is no way for a red laser to read a BD. Never has been on any OS that I'm aware of.
