Hello. I bought me an external Memorex Blue-Ray writer. It is Slim portable drive with 6x Multi-Format. It came with Cyberlink Suite called Media Suite 8. Looks like my WIndows 7 Ultimate don't like it and it doesn't install without errors, and it shows mI am missing dlls and all that good stuff. Any suggestions on a good software for my drive that is free? Or perhaps some suggestions. Looks like WIndows XP is ok. Thank you.

Edit: Moved topic from Windows 7 to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

I did get CD. But every time I install it it gives me error. And then it doesn't load DVD completely. I will get in touch with the software people, but I just thought maybe there is some software available for free that I can use instead to watch Blue Ray movies on my PC.

I'd be talking to Memorex, I also would not spend time on it to the point where I could not return it and get a different drive.

Any reason you got a external rather than a internal?

I would expect that the software suite came with Power DVD for playing videos. Does that work as a standalone?

One other thought does your computer meet the hardware & software requirements for that drive?

I assume that it meets requirements given it is modern PC with good video card and processor and Windows 7. No it doesn't play as stand alone. The reason I got external is so I can use it on all my computers.

Do you know of any other software that can play Blu-Ray Movies?

Thank you I'll try. I did call Memorex and all I had pulled out of them is I have to do something with the registry which they didn't want to help me with, and that the soft is not compatible with my Windows 7, 64 Bit and that it is only a 32 bit software. Is there a way to install it as 32 bit or temporary run Windows in 32 Bit?

The problem is that the software package is designed to burn, convert and play and would most likely be unstable under 64 bit if it really is 32 bit.

You could try asking Cyberlink for help.

Good Luck
