I am trying to obtain a way to play my Blu-Ray discs on a HP Notebook that does not possess an optical drive for it. I am aware that you need both a blu-ray playing software on the machine and an external drive that the disc is popped into. My worry is that a lot of people online say things dont work when they finally get everything together. Here is what I am planning:
I am looking at the Pioneer slim BDR-XD05S for the optical drive and then plan to use VLC as the software. Will this work? Or will I have to shell out another 70-90 bucks to get PowerDVD installed.
