Hi guys, ive been helping my friend build his new pc and we finished it today.
Everything working perfectly until we tried to play a blu ray. Basically the drive will read the disc that came with the drive, but wont play DVDs or Blu ray discs. Im not very familiar with blu rays drives as this is my first time dealing with one. There is also a standard pioneer DVD drive installed, which runs Dvds fine.
Someone else may have a more definitive answer for you, but I'm thinking you're missing HDCP certification somewhere along the chain. HDCP is a copy protection scheme and each item that participates in the showing of a Blu Ray DVD (DVD player, Graphics card, monitor) must be HDCP certified in order for the signal to pass through each unit. I'm pretty sure your HIS 5770 is HDCP certified (cause I'm about to buy one) and the Samsung Blu Ray player would be also, so check that your monitor is HDCP certified. If it is, you may need to read the manual to find out how to connect and receive HDCP playback. I'm not absolutely sure, but it may also require the use of an HDMI cable.
