I have a Pioneer Blu-ray player (PC device, not a dedicated player), at least 2 years old, from before all that 3D tech boom, and 3D-capable GPU.

My question is - is that build capable of playing 3D Blu-ray, or I need a "3D" branded blu-ray device?
Can ordinary blu-ray devices play 3D blu-ray movies?

and you'll need 3D capable software, the only one I know available at the moment is Arcsoft TMT5

So you are saying it needs to be 12x read speed capable to play 3D blu-ray?

If it was only 8x would it lag or just not work?

I'm interested in the answer to the OPs question too...

PowerDVD can also...

These are the specs of my drive:

Read Speeds Pioneer BDC-202

Read Speed BD-ROM Single Layer 5x CAV (22.50 MB/sec)
Read Speed BD-ROM Dual Layer 2x CLV (9.00 MB/sec)
Read Speed BD-R/RE Single Layer 5x CAV (22.50 MB/sec)
Read Speed BD-R/RE Dual Layer 2x CLV (9.00 MB/sec)
Read Speed BD-ROM (BD9) 8x CAV (11.08 MB/sec)

Those are quite confusing. What is CAV and CLV, and how come 5xCAV = 22.5Mbps, and 8xCAV = 11.1Mbps?

CAV=Constant Angular Velocity
CLV=Constant Linear Velocity

BD9 i.e. the 8x CAV=11.08 is actually bluray on DVD if I remember correctly hence the slower speed, data is not nearly as dense on DVD so less data passes the laser at the same spin speed as an actual BluRay.
