Get the K-Lite Codec Pack.
It brings many library's and a media player. I haven't had a single issue playing bluray movies or files with it.
You may also want to look into methods of extracting the files out of the Blu-ray Disc so that you can play the file directly on your PC than having
to read from the disc.
Thanks for this, I'll look more into it once I officially get home from work. I like the fact that they're all .exe files, because it makes it easier
to have him do it over the phone rather than me driving all the way across town to do it for him. lol
As for extracting, I know it's a good option available, but I'm not sure I want to go that route with him. It's one of those things where if we go
this route, it'll be me doing it all of the time, so I'd rather keep it as simple as possible so he can do it. lol

Have you tried divx yet? Their codec packs tend to be pretty comprehensive.
I haven't tried divx yet, I'll look into that later on as well. I was hoping to not have to worry about codecs, hence why I loved VLC for so long
regarding my dvd's, but I guess it was inevitable. XD
To answer your question, GreenGunther, I don't know if it's a driver issue. The blu-ray drive does actually see the discs, it just won't play a lot
of them. It's weird, when I first setup the player for him we tested it out on Back to the Future blu-ray and it worked fine. When it comes to the
discs it won't read the drive still sees them, the player just won't play them. I can't remember what the error msg's say, but I believe it could be
a codec issue. We'll see tonight.
Thank you all for your replies, I really appreciate it.
