Blu-Ray playback software for Vista 64?

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
I have a sony blu ray playback drive that was working perfectly in Vista 32.
I just obtained Vista 64 business, and I am using that.

How can I playback my blu-ray movies (preferably for free) in 64 bit vista?
The software that came with my drive doesn't work.

Cyberlink PowerDVD, their should be a free OEM version floating around on the net Works perfect on Vista x64.

This is what I use on my media center, which is running Vista Ultimate 64 bit.

It's an LG bluray/HD dvd player. If you are still having issues with your player and no software seems to work - you may need to update the firmware on your dvd drive, I had to.

A couple of questions for you as I've never had a problem with PDVD & Vista 64..

Is it just Blu-Ray that won't play? Can you play a normal DVD through PowerDVD on the Sony drive?

It could be a HDCP issue, since it's a new Vista install, have you installed SP1? I remember getting a couple of issues (movies would downscale because it couldn't detect the hdcp) before installing SP1. It could cause the Sony drive to not display any BD's for you.

Failing that give AnyDVD a shot (You can download a 21 day trial version here. If it works with AnyDVD I'd be 99% certain it's a hdcp issue.
