Can't Play Copied BluRay Disk? Solved

    Can't Play BluRay Disks?

    I can no longer play BluRay disks following my recent upgrade to Windows 10 - I've tried playing commercial BluRay discs and recorded disks from my Panasonic BluRay TV recorder.

    The BluRay disks used to play fine on my PC but now I've upgraded to Windows 10 nothing will play the disk or .m2ts file - I've tried Nero BluRay Player, VLC, Films & TV and Media Player.

    The BluRay disks play fine in my 2 dedicated BluRay players so the disks are OK. Has Windows 10 done something to trash the codecs for BluRay playback and how do I check and solve the issue? Perhaps I should uninstall/reinstall Nero 2015 which I use for BluRay playback?

    Update: Installing the free Leawo Bluray player restored my Bluray playback capability - see my post 21 at
    anyone heard of this blu-ray software Leawo player

    The problem was probably an incompatibility between my Nero2015 BluRay player and Windows 10 which it seems is another example of porr software engineering from Nero. If Leawo can provide a decent working Bluray player for free, why can't Nero?
