How to Play a Blu-ray movie using PowerDVD 9

Blu-ray movies give the ultimate high definition experience. Blu-ray video is not yet a supported media by default in any Windows system so a third party program is required to play them. The most common of these is CyberLink Power DVD. This guide will walk you through the steps of playing a Blu-ray movie using CyberLink PowerDVD 9.

**NOTE: Verify your system meets the requirements to play Blu-rays before using PowerDVD. This includes a monitor with a digital output which supports HDCP along with a supported graphics card and updated driver**

  1. Insert Blu-ray disc into the optical drive.
  2. Open Power DVD 9 by clicking Start » All Programs » CyberLink Blu-ray Disc Suite » Power DVD 9 » CyberLink PowerDVD 9.

    Open CyberLink PowerDVD 9

  3. Select the optical drive as your primary source using the icon in the lower left corner of PowerDVD.

    Select optical drive
  4. Click Play and PowerDVD will load your movie.
