    Hello to all,

    1st I hope that this is the first thread of this kind.
    My question: can I play Blu-ray disc without 3rd party sofware?
    I have windows 7 beta1 installed and Blu-ray/DVD combo unit on my ACER laptop.

    Any sugestions?

    Without sounding like an ass... why don't you try it? lol.

    I would be pleasantly surprised if it did, I have a Blu-ray drive in my HTPC so I will try it for you when I get home.

    I've tried a couple of times...if I just right click on the blu-ray drive and click play, it opens the disc in WMP, but just sits there saying "loading". Of course I haven't waited longer than 15 - 20 secs before saying screw it and shutting it off. But, I'd wager that there is some unfinished bd playback implemented.

    Well i tried playing just a mt2s file from a retail Underworld Evolution Blu-ray disc and
    media player says it doesn't recognize the file type and it won't just play on it's own.

    PowerDVD works fine so I know I can play it :)

    Yeah PowerDVD is what I use normally ...more control, more options. Though I don't really watch blu-rays on my computer ...just there for ripping :)

    I did not explain corectly.
    Keep in mind that english is not my native language!

    I tried with default install of windows 7. No luck. I thought there is an update or more info how to enable BluRay playback.
    That was my question. 3dr party software I know it works.

    My goal is to install only and absolutely only software that are not included in Windows7. Call me crazy but I have the impression that by doing so my sistem is more responsive and stable (my personal experience since win95)
