I reformatted/repartitioned my Drive and reinstalled vista. All drivers are reinstalled as well and the only thing left is to get the Blu-Ray playing again. I read here in the forums that I need Media Direct to play my Blu-Ray movies. Is this correct? Are there any alternatives?
When trying to install the provided Media Direct CD v3.5, I get an installation error and nothing more happens.
I also read that Media Direct will mess up your partitions OR it will create new partition(s)? Why is that?
I just want to play my blu-ray movies without having to install so much software and having to partition my drive. I like my partitions the way they are.
Please advice on what to do and what are the alternatives to Media Direct.

Re: Do I really need Media Direct to play Blu-Ray???
You will not be able to install Media Direct on your computer if no seperate partion (2-2.5 GB) is allocated before the Operating System is installed. Having said that there are other software player available on the web which you can use for Blue Ray Playback.
