x51 r2 Bluray/DVD won't read discs

I just bought the X51 R2 and the bluray/DVD doesn't work.  It will accept discs but it is unable to read any of them.  The drive does show up under my Computer but when it has a disc inserted it gives me the message that there is no disc and then ejects it.  I did the ePSA diagnostics and they didn't show any drive errors.  I tried to update the Drivers and it tells me that they have the most up to date version.  I ran windows fix it and again it didn't show any errors.  I went into the regedit and there are no filters listed there.  I even tried changing the region settings under the drive to make sure that wasn't the issue and no dice.  I have tried the discs that came with the system, other data discs, DVD's and audio CD's and none are recognized. 

I followed all of the instructions in this article and none of them have resolved the issue: 


Can someone please help me figure out how to resolve this issue?
