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)!

Product:
LG Black 14X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA BDXL Blu-ray Burner,3D Play Back (WH14NS40) - OEM

I could be completely mistaken here, but I think VLC media player will play Blu-ray format videos.

OEM = No software and no sata cable.

I don't think there are any free blu-ray playing options. Besides, playing BD on a monitor is redundant.

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.
