What People Are Saying

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed I bought this so I could watch my bluray movies on my computer. I had it for 2 1/2 years. Got a new bluray a few days ago in the mail, watched it, went to watch another disk and it stopped working. I put in a different disk and it spits it out and tells me to put in a disk. Will not recognize any disk or play any disks.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does the job but noisy. I purchased 2 months ago. It does the job but it is very noisy and unbalanced. I thought it was my discs at first but it does not seem to matter what I put in it, it is very noisy and vibrates something awful. And while it's making its noise and vibrating it will not read the disk.I am very disappointed in this drive that came highly recommended. I feel the drive is not worth the material it took to make it. Sorry but that is how I feel. The worse thing is LG said they can't help me except maybe replace it with a refurbished drive. I didn't purchase a refurbished drive, I purchased a new one with a new warranty, not the silly 90 day warranty that comes with a refurbished drive. Very dishonest if you ask me. So unless LG can replace my drive with a new one with the full NEW DRIVE warranty I think i'll buy another brand.

This drive claims that region B (Europe) blu ray disks won't play because they are the wrong region when I've bought and been supplied with it in the UK and the disks are region B. Why is this drive so stupid?

The LG Super Multi Blue Internal 14x Blu-ray Disc Rewriter, Model # WH14NS40 supports Regional Playback Control Phase II for DVD-Video and since it supports Regional Playback Control Phase II for DVD-Video with CSS, a certain MPEG decoder card or Software without regional code setting may cause this drive not to read DVD-Video with CSS discs. This Drive enables you to change the regional code up to 5 times...^IFV

This came in a desktop that I recently purchased, but it does not play anything. I can find where the PC registers the DVD disk and files, but I can't play any DVDs. I also cannot play Blu Ray disks. What do I need to do so I can watch my movies?

Asked by: Jimangle
You will need to install (probably purchase) software for burning and for playing. Nero, DVDFab, and other software will write or burn. See here for a few BD playback sofware packages (http://lifehacker.com/5870977/five-best-blu-ray-playback-suites). For burning, a couple of lists can be found here (http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2407553,00.asp) and here (http://blu-ray-burning-software-review.toptenreviews.com/). I use (just downloading because I had the same problem) potplayer for playing BD discs and IMGBurn, DVDFab, and Nero for burning.
