For starters, i'm not sure if this is the right area to be posting this... it seemed the best @ the time...

I recently bought an internal Blu-Ray drive for my Vista x64 PC.

It installed fine, and it came w/ Cyberlink's PowerDVD 8 BD edition

When I insert a BD disk, it runs w/o sound for about 2 minutes, then the picture freezes. The display timer continues on the screen, but i can't click on anything (2 minutes isn't long enough for the menu to fully pop up)

does anyone have any ideas?

oh, btw. Normal DVD's work just fine.

My computer is:
AMD: Athlon 64 X2 5200+ 2991 MHz
Mobo: Gigabyte M57SLI-S4 v.2
RAM: 4GB Mushkin DDR2 PC2-6400
OS: Vista 64bit SP2
VC: EVGA 8800 GTS 320MB
