Windows 7: Blu-ray Drive won't play

well i just double checked and according to what i found a computer must have at least 2 gigs of ram, blu-ray software a monitor that has 1080p and an advanced graphics card which the op's computer has intergrated graphics on the mother board and a crt monitor will not display 1080p.
also on the op's computer specs it shows he is using 248gigs of memory and has 333gigs of memory free!! what kind of super computer is that? there is no personal computer out there with 581gigs of memory. so someone needs to update their computer specs. his exact list shows 248GB used 333GB free!! ??? i just googled his gateway desktop and it comes with 6GB of ram with a max of 8GB.

It is due to DRM and so the program wants an HDCP compliant display.
I knew it! The idea of my computer not playing Blu-rays didn't make sense. Sure, it has an installed DVD Player, but why have a BD-ROM Drive listed?

Anyway, I'am going to get an HD Monitor, as it was part of the plan, but I wanted to get it later instead of getting...everything at once, y'know.

And the pic above with the monitor; that is my monitor, and it is old. Which explains this problem, right?

SlySoft AnyDVD HD

this disables DRM and HDCP so it should play after you run this program. it is a trial so you can test it out.
Under the "Download" page, it is the one titled "AnyDVD & AnyDVD HD " that I'm suppose to dl, right?
Ya, Any DVD and ANY DVD HD is the one. I guess both are incorporated into one package.

His machine is fine, his integrated graphics support Bluray. And you don't "need" a 1080P display.

That would be because I use to refer to memory and space as the same thing. I still do. Sorry for the confusion.

Wait, I thought I needed an HD Monitor for this to work?

i think the "1080P" may be adding confusion...

you do need an HD compliant monitor as Zepher said in post #7 - it could be 1080P, 1080I, 720....

Well, guys: I dl-ed AnyDVD, and once it was installed and I rebooted, I pop the drive back in, and then a disc, and...It Played!

I finally got the thing working. I'm still in confusion, though; is it because of the AnyDVD I installed? If so, does that mean I have to bring it up again and again anytime I connect the drive again, or did it just "fix" something to make it play? Also, as of this writing, I have 21 days on this (AnyDVD), so what happens once its up; does it not do its thing? I'm happy that it works, but I'm still confused.

P.S. I should mention that when CyberLink is brought up, my computer changes to Windows 7 Basic color scheme, and back to normal once it closed.

I have some media programs that temporarily turn off aero...so don't worry about that.

21 days of trial and then it will no longer work; by default AnyDVDHD will load with Windows and be running in the background at the driver level.

You try the program PassKeyBD from DVDFab which also runs in the background. Myself I have both programs and AnyDVDHD is the one to invest in as far as I am concerned.

Once you have AnyDVDHD paid for and on board you can use a free video player from VSO software to play your BD discs.
