Hi, I have just installed a new Blu Ray Drive but my computer does not recognise it as such and won't play any discs i put in it. It recongnises the disc inserted but it will not do the right thing with it. Trying the film "Elysium" and "Skyline", Dropbox opens and asks me if i want to transfer pictures to my computer. I need help.


BD drive is a Pioneer BDC-207DBK. DXDiag attached.

Did your drive come with a disc to install software and drivers? If so, did you run the installation disc?

If auto run is disabled, you'll have to access the disc through my computer and look for the executable to manually start the installation process.

Blue Ray drives for computers are not the same as DVD drives that will play movies without licensing.


Sony (the creators of blue ray standard) have deemed it necessary to purchase a software license key (about 50.00) that will play blue ray movies.  If you purchase a stand alone blue ray player this license is attached to the cost of the purchased hardware.  With blue ray drives you can have different software play the blue ray movies, but you need to pay the fee to buy a license to be able to play the movie on a computer.


You need a program like PowerDvd or WinDvd or Total Media


Maybe this article will explain it better
