windows 7 blu ray playback

When my Viao ran Vista, Blu Ray worked a treat. Now i have upgraded to windows 7, it no longer works. It will play dvd's, even through hdmi, but not blu rays. Why is this? Do i need some 3rd party software? Thanks

I use PowerDVD 9 after trial and error trying other players. See if there is a firmware update for your drive too, I'd have a look for you, but you'll need to fill in your system specs first.

Even on your old laptop you would have had to have some 3rd party software in order to play blu ray. My recommendation is either PowerDVD 9 Ultra (make sure its the Ultra edition as that is the only version that plays blu ray) and total media.

Bluray readers/burners for PCs aren't all the same.

Some will read and play 99.9% of every BR out there.
Others, you'll be lucky if they can read and play 1/2 of them.

Ive been fairly lucky, as my LG has played nearly everything without issue.
But I had 2, Alien VS Predator2 (it spins up and then says no disc) and there was another I ran into ... cant recall which one it was now :/


To know if it's the reader itself or a software problem, Open Windows explorer, and look at your BD drive.
If it shows a disc loaded with the name, the drive is working and its a software issue you need to work out.

If its showing no disc, the reader simply can not read the disc.

You may just be unlucky in the sense you just happen to be trying to play the handful that particular drive doesnt want to play.
They all are different.

All you need to do is download Shark 007 codec pack, and you will play everything, including Bluray. That's the only 3rd party thing you need.
