What program do you use to play blueray ( movie ? ) disk ? Windows 8 does not have the codecs to play BD disks even if you installed WMC.

By the way, is this a notebook or a brand-model PC that came with BD disk drive ? If yes, please post the complete model designation of your computer.

I believe your notebook with a BD disk drive lacks a BD disk player software. You must check your notebook manual.

There are two different models of your notebook G75VX and G75VW. I read the on-line manual for one of them and it read the software should be purchased separately.

So after you are sure your notebook does not have BD disk player software, you can visit Cyberlink or Corel for purchasing PowerDVD13 or WinDVD Pro 11 to play both 2D and 3D BD and normal DVD movie disks. Your notebook screen seems to be capable of playing 3D as well.

You may also find free player software for normal DVD movie disks but not BD movie disks, I believe.

One other option which I think you have is, contact Asus and tell them you cannot play movie disks with your brilliant notebook.

I am sorry I will be of no further help to you at this point.
