... but they forgot the disk!!!! Help please...

So I bought a Blu-Ray Burner off Newegg. It was OEM but at the time it was the cheapest (approx $65 on sale). After reading the reviews, I found about half the people who bought it got a disc with drivers and software, the others didn't. Just my luck, I didn't.

Sooo... Looking for a free software download to make it play Blu-Ray Discs, since Window Media Player does not support the files format and the manufacturer does not offer any downloads (in fact when I type the model number into LG's site it doesn't recognize the model number).

Thanks guys (and gals)!

  1. I could be completely mistaken here, but I think VLC media player will play Blu-ray format videos.
  2. VLC http://www.videolan.org/vlc/index.html

  3. OEM = No software and no sata cable.
  4. I don't think there are any free blu-ray playing options. Besides, playing BD on a monitor is redundant.

  6. Thank you all for the responses. A few things to add:

    @ Smeg45: I play games on the monitor, but I also have it hooked up to a 50in 1080p 120hz LCD TV and 5.1 Surround sound. I use it for a home media tower as wel as my personal PC.

    @ Area51reopened: If you read the reviews, some people claim to have gotten software/driver disc with the product, so while I was not expecting it, I was being optimistic.
