I got an Asus bluray optical drive and its not playing any blurays. No autoplay comes up even though the pc sees the disc. WMP wont play it, VLC wont play it either. Ive tried downloading a couple softwares but they either require a registration or theyre too laggy. Any advice?

Unless you purchased a retail version of the drive (software included), you will need to purchase third party software to play Blu-Ray discs. Look to CyberLink PowerDVD or ArcSoft Total Media are two of the most popular.

thanks guys but im just going to return it. I read on asus' website that its just a writer and not a reader. the guy at canadacomputers gave me this after i said i was looking for a bluray reader, but now i realize that he doesnt know squat all about computers. thanks again guys!
