Question Is it possible for a blu ray drive to not work with a specific blu ray?

I bought a blu ray drive recently that I'm using in an enclosure but kept having it kicking out this one disc or stop mid-film while giving me the sound as if it had been disconnected. I tried several different fixes I found online to no avail.

On a lark though I put in a different movie and had it play the entire run time without issue. Put in 3 other films and again, no problems.

The weird thing though is that I happen to have 2 copies of the movie with the issues and BOTH copies have problems despite no visible damage to either. Is it possible that a specific blu ray release would have issues that others do not?

This is what I'm using:

On Windows 10.

That's odd.
Does event viewer give you any indication of what is happening? Do both discs pop out at the exact same spot? Are you watching the movie or ripping it?
Welp, turns out I was wrong. It looks like I just got lucky. I now have a third blu ray that crashed now. It seems that it doesn't always eject though, sometimes it just gives me the audio feedback as if I'd disconnected the drive's usb from the PC and goes back to the home menu on the blu ray player. I am watching the movie, not burning them. I should add I'm using it in an enclosure.

Here is what event viewer shows:

I think you have a faulty Blu-ray drive and why not just buy a Blu-ray reader writer from LG the kind that just plugs into USB already and you don’t need an enclosure those work perfectly on every disk that I have whether watching or ripping

As a test test them on another computer with a Blu-ray drive and see if they fail if they fail then they are bad disks bad recordings. If they don’t fail then it’s your drive
