Is There a Way To Play Blu-Ray With Win 7 Home Edition

If not, since I have a blu-ray player and no software, what can I use? I have Win 7 64 bit.

Hi there

Didn't you get some software when you got your player -- I've got an LG BD device which came with a Blue ray version of PowerDVD -- works fine in Windows 7 X-64 although I haven't got a monitor or a decent enough video card to actually see HD output on full HD mode. The blu ray disc play fine however (in normal mode).

I only got the BD device because of the large capacity discs - but since you can now get ultra cheap pocket sized usb disks with up to 500GB on them I think the BD device was actually a waste of time and money.

I think Windows Media player might have a problem with the DVD encryption for blu ray DVD's -- I couldn't get them to play - but I didn't really try a lot since power DVD which came with the hardware worked straight OOB.

If I want HD TV I'll watch it in comfort on my large LCD sitting on a on a really nice sofa with a nice glass of scotch in my hand. The last thing I'll want to do is have a computer anywhere near it.

Cheers
jimbo

It came with Cyberlink software, however, when I loaded it on Vista when I had it, it didn't work. I had to pay for Cyberlink support to get them to send me a link to some software that would work. I cannot find the link since I installed Win 7. I would have to pay them for support again, which I refuse to do. Any ideas?

I tried it with a Blu-ray disc and it wouldn't play it....Does it need a certain codec? I know that my player is working fine. I also tried it in Windows Media Center and it said that I need the correct "application" to play it, which I figure is a codec. Also tried it in WMP 12, and it wouldn't even recognize the disc.
