Sony posts movie playback patch for Blu-ray burner
Sony has finally posted a patch for the CyberLink PowerDVD playback software it bundles with its internal Blu-ray Disc burner, the BWU-100A, to allow the drive to play pre-recorded BD media. Sony announced the drive in Europe in September. A month later it promised a BD playback update.
And now, Sony Europe said today, it's here. The PowerDVD update can be downloaded now from Sony's support website here.
Of course, it's not a straightforward operation. The site also provides a BD playback suitability Wizard to check whether your machine has a suitably powerful processor and/or graphics chip to be able to decode the HD content stored on BD-ROMs. ®
