Blu-ray player software and drive recommendation

Post by SaraJoshion » Fri Dec 19, 2014 7:08 am

Hi, guys, I just want to buy a blu-ray player software and an external drive, can you give me some advice? For I am a new user of blu-ray.

Hello!

I just upgraded my laptop to one and it was a nightmare since i purchased it on eBay.com without the installation CD!!!

Let me explain that Sony's licensing on Blu-ray is insane, and it means it's almost impossible to play Blu-rays on your computer with something just plug and play! Luckily Windows is the only operating system that can play them back without much hassle. There are 2 things I would want to know before suggesting anything:

1- What kind of PC, specs (hardware/OS) will you be installing this on?

2- If you haven't purchased yet, which models did you have in mind?

I ask this because most new or in box drives come with a drive installation disc and this will be usually be bundled with something like "Cyberlink PowerDVD" which retails like $50 when purchased alone! and secondly I want to make sure your PC has the power to run a smooth picture!

Happy Holidays!

Thank you for your reply, I got my computer two weeks ago, which has high configuration, enough to run a smooth picture, I guess.
