Concerning your problem, you have to know that the pattern of Blue-Ray technology involves special appropriate codecs which you need to be parched which is not included in your windows seven operating system.

Please go the Microsoft program and support at the Microsoft windows web site. Here you can download the codecs for your player to run blue-ray discs.

Anyway, you can also use some other media player to play the blue ray discs more easily without buffering error. Some examples of such kind of player is:

1. VLC media player

2. KM player

I think you both don’t understand how Blu-ray works. A Blu-ray disc is not like any other CD or DVD disc that you can insert and play on any normal CD or DVD drive. Ordinary optical drives won’t be able to play Blu-ray discs because the disc itself is in a different format and contains a much higher capacity than normal DVD disc.

If you want to play a Blu-ray disc on your computer, you need to purchase a separate Blu-ray drive which is capable of reading Blu-ray discs. The easiest way to play a Blu-ray disc is to use a program called ArcSoft TotalMedia Theatre 6 together with a Blu-ray drive. To download, visit ArcSoft TotalMedia Theatre 6. See image.

This version supports Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8. It has a 15-day trial period and the full version costs around $88. Besides a Blu-ray drive, your monitor should also support HDCP. The difficulty of playing Blu-ray discs on a computer is because of Sony’s licensing on Blu-ray.
