I have recently bought a Sony Vaio AW31M/H laptop in Italy and suprise the langauge was Italian. To remedy this I installed Vista Ultimate abd changed the langauge to English UK which deleted all the original settings and software. I have since downloaded all the drivers and vital software and I have not done a bad job. Problem is the lap top cannot read Blue ray discs it can read DVD and CD. I have downloaded Windvd 9 plus. I think this is because it is not using the original drivers for the player. I have now spent 2 days searching the net and being duped by lying web sites offering what I want and not actually coming up with the goods.

Can somebody please confirm that I am correct about what I think the problem is and secondly show me where to go to get these drivers as this is realy starting to P me off.

That's not a driver.

To play Blu Ray (BR) content you need Blu Ray player software. You say you have PowerDVD so what I'm thinking is the region is not set to your liking.

Talk to PowerDVD to see if they support this drive.
