My Version 11 Ultra is working just fine...so far. Used it yesterday with no problems on a couple of new blu-rays.

It seems that Cyberlink is currently doing a whole-sale block for older (outdated) OEM-BluRay software.
Obviously they are simply blocking the AACS download.

Currently affected are versions < 10.

Found further details.
According to Cyberlink's downloadpage they stopped all software development even for purchased versions prior to 10.
This stop explicitly includes new AACS keys so that BluRays younger than 06/2011 may not play anymore.

At least they are (currently) not blocking older AACS-keys for the purchased versions.
It all seems so stupid, it makes me want to give up!
But why should I give up, when it all seems so stupid?

My PC will not run BD on PowerDVD 10 or 11 latest up dates. Have you run the Cyberlink BD or 3D advisor program. It says my video card can't hack, I've know this for several months.

They will playa DVD if you turn off the TrueTheater effects....Cyberlink PowerDVD settings>video>TrueTheater effects>off[

My PC has about had it. Last week the sound went out, the sound system gets nothing and the screen speaker barely get a peep if I turn the sound all the way up.  The C drive sounds funny occasionally, Fortunately I got 2T byte My Book on Amazon's deal of the day and have everything saved.

For about a week I've been studying all the options on the internet, but haven't had the time to get to the stores, But I can't makeup my mind. The note books are looking pretty good, since any more about all I use the darn thing for is scan the internet and run the DVD Profiler. I got to look inside.

Are the AACS keys really needed if you're running AnyDVD? I'm still using PowerDVD 7 and it seems to play everything alright...

AnyDVD HD is providing it's own keys. So when running it simultaneously the original keys are not needed.

The problem is that AnyDVD is outlawed in several countries for doing exactly this.

Not that I would have missed the complimentary inelegant PDVD a lot, but after uninstall and reinstall B-rDs work again.

On Dec. 18th I installed a part of the Nero 11 Suite (Nero InfoTool v8.0.1.100), and at that time played around a little with disabling auto startups (PowerDVD RC Service is only needed for Remote Controls, isn't it?), maybe that combined with



and the additional installation of the advised free but "Critical" Update for PowerDVD (60 MB "patch" from v9.0.2919.52 to 9.0.4322.52) caused a system hiccup.

Thanks for the investigations, Sir.

But the Support Notice for eg PowerDVD 7 says that the Development Phase has already ended in 2009, and bigdaddyhorse's PDVD7 worked until Dec. 31, 2011.

Rhetorical question, do I have B-rDs released after 2011 June (end of development phase for my PDVD9)? The youngest, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, still works (again).

I know I'm joining this thread kind of late, but I gotta say that of all the products I've looked at, the Arcsoft TotalMedia product is probably the best of the breed for one key reason.  It does HD-DVD playback as well.  This may not be as important to some people but I have backed up all of my HD-DVD discs to ISO, and this is the only software I've seen that still supports the format.

PowerDVD 12 does a good job of playing the BD disc, but I really hate all the integrated crap it grabs off the net when you start it up.  It also plays the BD discs I've recorded at home without a problem.

I don't know why they think we need all that junk.  I just want a good player with up-to-date codecs, etc.  I tried several of the other similar products from other companies and didn't like them at all.

If you have Windows 8 avoid Windvd 11 as it doesn't work on this OS. Still waiting for the patch they promised they were working on months ago.

Ok, guys, I just bought an LG Blu-ray drive for my PC. What is the best software to play discs and view information for building profiles? Also, can you read 3Ds on a PC?

I figure somewhere in the $100+/- range for the software.

Which is "the best software" depends on too many variables.

All programs that advertise "Bluray Playback" will do exactly this.

What else do you expect from this software?
If you want MCE-integration don't buy Nero
If you are running Windows 8.1, WinDVD still seems to have some problems
If you expect decent support stay away from PowerDVD

It's all a matter of which (personal) pros outweigh the cons.

For me it is PowerDVD (again) mostly for its MCE integration and simply because I'm used to it.
It all seems so stupid, it makes me want to give up!
But why should I give up, when it all seems so stupid?

I don't know if this is politically correct in your location, but I would think about investing in software that circumvents digital rights restrictions first.

Does 3Ds mean ? Read? Yes, same media type as . Play depends on more than the player software.

You might want to check out Media Player Classic. It's open source freeware. I use it together with AnyDVDHD and it seems to work OK. Not sure if it handles 3D, though.
