Buying BluRay/HD-DVD drive for PC

why not just buy the bdc-202 from a store in the UK for a little bit cheaper?

It would work, but quite likely be locked to Region 1 (NTSC) for DVD movie playback, and Region A for Blu-ray movie playback - probably have no warranty too. I doubt it comes with any software..

Is there any software available fro BluRay playback for PCs?

If you buy the combo it comes with software for playing blu-ray but you will need to upgrade to Ultra to access all the latest sound formats.

It can be downloaded for $99

Tenner extra gets you PowerDVD thrown in http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/131748 - You'll need AnyDVDhd as well...

just received this last night, fitted it but not had time to try it out :smashin:

what are the extra audio formats you don't get unless you update to ultra with powerdvd?

I just want standard 5.1/7.1, none of this high def trueHD stuff, i only have a creative T7700 speaker setup

I think it was only 2.0 (Stereo) PowerDVD 7.3BD - However I was outputting through Spdif so my amp decoded 5.1 - I upgraded to PowerDVD ultra a few days later so I could watch HD-DVD's on my 360 add-on (they look better through HDMI) - Still, saved some money to get AnyDVDhd. Now I can rip films to my hard drive
