 have a PIONEER BD-ROM BDC-207D SATA Cd Rom device sata internal optical drive in my Hp Pavilion desktop running Win 7 64.

I have downloaded PowerDVD, the first download after many attempts that actually did something, however it tells me that I need a DVI, HDMI connection and that HDCP is running.

Can I buy a sata device that meets these criteria?

It sounds like it is asking for a digital video ouput of some sort. What are the specs of your hp pavilion desktop? Did it come with the BD-ROM or did you recently add that?

 

PowerDVD has a list of supported video chipsets. You may need to upgrade your video card to play blue ray discs.

The HD6370 should support blue ray playback. How is your monitor or tv connected to the video card hdmi, dvi-d, vga? Also, are you trying to play a 3D blu ray or just standard blu ray disc's? If you are trying 3D you may need a version 1.4 highspeed hdmi cable and I am not certain your cpu would keep up.

The VGA is the likely problem. Does your monitor support a dvi connection or hdmi connection? If it has dvi, a dvi cable should solve the problem. If the monitor has hdmi, you will need to go from a dvi-d cable to hdmi.

I am not certain which monitor you have, most support all versions of DVI cables but be aware, there are different versons. Some monitors only support DVI-D which does not have the 4 pins around the single long pin. If your monitor is DVI-D only, a cable with the analogue pins may not plug in. Can you post the make and model # monitor? I am guessing you will be fine.

 

You can also look at the DVI connection on the monitor (White) and see if it has 4 holes around a long hole on one of the sides. There are images of different dvi connectors here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Visual_Interface

DVI-D requires a cable that does not have the 4 analogue pins. What cable did you buy? I guess you can always send it back... A DVI-D single or dual link cable should work fine. The DVI-I single or dual link may not plug in to the monitor due to the 4 extra pins.

HDCP (High-bandwith Digital Content Protection is copy protection that requires a secure path from the disk to the display.  If any item in the path is not HDCP compliant you will have issues with HDCP content from not being able to view or lower resolution.  This is your reward for paying for a legal copy of the digital content.  (You may have noticed that I'm not a fan of punishing people who legally purchase your products)

 

As zingo156 pointed out your VGA connection is an issue.  There may be additional issues, but VGA is not an HDCP compliant connection.

 

You can also purchase AnyDVD HD.  As you can see from the product description it removes the restrictions that HDCP throws up.

Cable is DVI-D dual link. Still get same message!

Maybe AnyDVD HD is the only way to go.
