    You cannot play any Blu-Ray disc on any Windows, unless you buy a drive and software.

    A drive without software is not enough. Software without a drive is not enough.

    Drive: Buffalo, Samsung, LG, ASUS and Sony;

    Blu-ray software: Macgo Windows Blu-ray Player

    But Arcsoft only can work on Windows platforms, I have used Macgo and it works great on my iMac. Only the Blu-ray menu is still in experiment and wish it can update quickly. http://www.macblurayplayer.com/macgo-christmas-promotion.htm

    Exactly, The key here is that your system must be Blu-ray compatible. I used Macgo Windows Blu-ray Player on my Windows 7 before. It sometimes gets crash. After I changed my computer to Windows 8.1. It runs more smooth. http://goo.gl/bJxDDi
