I miss using my Z565, still have it and it works perfectly but because of Bluray I no longer use it as a theatre PC. It sits in my rack and is never turned on but it sure is a neat computer. I tried to use it to play a HD DVD and a Blueray last year but it didn't work.
I recall Bigworm starting this thread and I followed and did most of what he told us to and it added so much to my theatre to have all the DVD's in my NAS drive. Originally it did play Blueray and HD-DVD but I don't know if any of this will work anymore. I tried on one of my laptops that has a built in Blueray player to play a Blueray disk but it wouldn't play a Bluray either.

Computer uses Vista.

Is anyone still able to play Blueray disks in a PC and if so with what software?

I haven't upgraded my optical drive yet because I don't even own blu-rays or HD DVD but I can see if I can help.

VLC media player might work to watch the discs. It seems like it can play any video type.

What OS are you running?
