I'm currently using the following:
- Samsung ATIV Book 4
- Intel Core i5-3230M @2.6GHz, driver version 6.2.9200.16451
- Intel Graphics HD 4000, driver version 18.104.22.16863
- Pioneer BDR-XD04 external Blu-Ray player; driver version 6.2.9200.16384
According to quick scans, all drivers appear to be up-to-date.
I'm trying to play a Blu-Ray via CyberLink PowerDVD 10, but it indicates that the graphics card is not capable of Blu-Ray playback. Using their "BD & 3D Advisor" utility, it gives me a failure as follows:
Graphics Card: Microsoft Basic Render Driver; BD Ready? No
Hardware Dual-Video Decoding Capability for H.264: None
Hardware Dual-Video Decoding Capability for MPEG-2: None
Hardware Dual-Video Decoding Capability for VC-1: None
After browsing forums for similar issues, it seems like everything should be fine, but I freely admit that I'm only marginally savvy with this sort of thing.
I guess my question(s) is: Am I doomed? If not, how do I correct this issue?
Based on other similar threads, I took a chance and upgraded PowerDVD to the latest version (from V10 to V13). It did the trick and resolved the issue.
Makes me wonder if the whole "component failure" thing is just a gimmick to garner upgrade $$ from Cyberlink users. Meh.
