    Blu Ray Software


    My DVD/CD player/recorder is acting up so decided to get a new one for my pc. Price for an 'ordinary' one 48x DVD/CD Write/Re write etc etc is 17.99. But if I want a blu ray one its 79.99 cheapest. But when I read the reviews, that buyers are annoyed because they have to buy software, and its not cheap!!!! I think I'll go for the x48 P&P.

    VLC as well as 5kplayer (both free) can play bluray.
    or at least most of them if you have a bluray player.
    Blank disks are usually have special ordered as most shops
    don't really carry them. Usb flash drives kinda ruined the
    market.
    I would say if your only getting the bluray for watching
    then you should go with a standalone version.
    for the computer add a basic dvd or replace it with a SSD

    I rarely use BluRay playback but this free player works fine for me Best Free Blu-ray Player Software for Windows - Leawo Blu-ray Player

    You can buy internal read / write BluRay drives from about 60 in the UK e.g. from Scan and Novatech.

    After reading the above, I decided it was not worth the extra expense of something I may only use occasionally, so decided on the
