Windows 7: Blu Ray

Blu Ray

When I recently bought a LG Blu Ray Combo internal player, it wouldn't recognize a Blu Ray movie disk, so I ran the Cyberlink BD Advisor, and it failed my video card.

Now, I have replaced it with a new GTX460 SC, and the BD Advisor seems happy with that, but it fails on some codecs, as can be seen in the screenshot below.

Are these codecs supposed to be native to W7, or part of the video driver (260.99) or ?

Even if your video card fails, the player should still recognize a blu ray disc has been inserted into the drive, but not play it.

Codecs have always come with the drive drivers for me.

Correct. I had put the disk in the wrong drive. Now it does recognize it, but tries to open WinDVD, which I have not bought, and it has expired. I have PowerDVD 8, but when I just tried to open it manually, an error window appeared and it failed. Do you know if that version of Power DVD supports BD? I have spent so much money lately on Blu Ray, that I'm reluctant to spend more on a player. Is there a free or cheap one available? I know about AnyDVD, but it is not cheap.

By "drive", are you referring to the optical drive?

I don't know, I'm still working on free...maybe $20-$30.

Do you have PowerDVD 8 deluxe? If so the upgrade to 10 Deluxe (no 3D) is only $30.

I'm searching around for a free blu ray compatible media player, but I've not found anything so far.

I think that It's PowerDVD 8 Ultra. I'm going to have to reinstall it to be sure.

Hmm, you might have to email them and ask if you can upgrade from that to 10 deluxe. It might even be cheaper

I think Power Dvd 8 will play Blueray disks But I know 10 will as i have it. I just got a new LG player and it came with PowerDVD.

If I'm reading it right, it requires the Ultra version to play BD.

The best 3D video, Blu-ray player & DVD player software

Since it doesn't include info about version 8 Ultra, I don't know if it is supposed to or not?
