After replacing hard drive and reinstall Windows, DVD Player cannot play a Blu - ray disc

Windows Media Player 12/Windows 7; Why my computer says "Windows Media Player cannot read the Blue Ray Disc. The disk has been created in a way that the player does not support.
Why my computer says "Windows Media Player cannot read the Blue Ray Disc. The disk has been created in a way that the player does not support "? I have Windows Media Player 12 and it comes a new movie. I can play other discs blue ray on this computer, but not this one. Is there an update that I'm missing or a codec I need?Thank you
This new film format is not supported by Windows Media Player, here is a link on how to play a dvd on windows media... player and codecs...
If you can not play... try using third-party codecs, but at your own risk :D
Hope this helps you :)
I have a Blu - ray player in my laptop, so why can't windows media player play? and what can I do so that it will be?
- My first answer is the Google search for Blu - Ray Codecs
- My second answer is Google looking for a program to play the Blu - Ray (some are free, some are paid
I do not think that caught WMP supported by Blu - Ray, but Apple's iTunes, and its free to download for PC and Mac, but on PC it is a Devourer of real resources (RAM and processor). Now I don't know if this program works for Blu - Ray, but Media Player Classic home cinema SurgeForge (and not by Microsoft) plays most formats as long as the K-lite codec pack is installed. Both k - lite and media player classic home cinema (and not by Microsoft) are free to download and and findable by searching on Google.
Good luck in getting your Blu-Rays to play, at the moment I am looking at myself if my PC will play Blu-Rays at all.
I just did an update on my PC from Vista 64 Home Premium to Windows 8 Professional, using the upgrade wizard. I got a note from my product key.
8 Windows tells me that my HD is reporting failures, which seems likely because I recently had some problems with it (sounds strange, occasional freezes). This is why I would like to replace the hard drive before it completely fails.
If I buy and adapt to a new hard drive, how do I go about installing Windows 8 on it with the license, I just bought? Can I create a boot disk before I have remove the old drive? Or do I have to reinstall Vista from the original disks and rerun the upgrade?
It is regrettable that the hard drive is broken, you can install Windows 8 on the new hard drive. You can see the following article from Microsoft Help to download an ISO of Windows 8 image by using the same product key.
If you encounter any problem with activation, then you will need to contact the activation team for assistance.

I think my hard drive is faulty on my F60 Quosmio so I want to reformat the hard drive to see if that will fix it. But I don't have the original packaging and the information with me at the moment so I don't know if it came with a windows 7 CD or not. Whatever it is, I don't have the CD.
I found on the net that most manufacturer who deliver without CD include a "recovery partition" or "factory image partition" which you can access during startup. Anyone know if the F60 Quosmio comes with a CD or if she has this recovery partition or partition image factory? Or do you know if there is a way I can check if my computer is it?
If you have more information about the formatting of the hard drive and reinstall windows 7 without the CD please let me know.
The laptop came with a Windows disc, because there is a Toshiba recovery disc Creator called tool which create the recovery disk.
The recovery partition was available and it allows you to recover the laptop without the use of the recovery disk, but it does not work if the HARD drive has failed.
Here's a nice HowTo on HARD drive recovery
So, if you n t have a recovery disc and can not recovery Notepad using HARD drive recovery, then you have two options:
-You will order a new recovery disk
-You must install Windows operating system using a disc of Microsoft

I'm frequently getting warnings about the health of my hard drive and while it is not catastrophic, I've been umming and ahhing (?) on the replacement of an SSD in the future anyway so thought it was a good excuse.
My real question is, what the procedure is perfect (or greater) for Windows 7 migration to the new drive? I think I want a default installation because this laptop has had so many programs installed/uninstalled it's probably a bit of a mess.
I have created 4 recovery DVD disks but have seen on the net they don't work and that download an ISO with the vignette product key can work either. I can't really afford interruption much (or all) so I try to do it safely and securely as possible!
Any help would be greatly appreciated and thanks for your time,.
> what the procedure is perfect (or greater) for Windows 7 migration to the new drive?
I think the fastest solution is the use of the recovery disk that you created using the recovery media creator Toshiba. I don't see a reason why it should not work as part of a new SSD.
I also have another recommendation.
You can create an image of your current HDD (partitions) using internal Windows 7 Backup and restore
After using the recovery disk, you can use the created image to get the current status.
My friend brought me his computer and said that he would not start. I tried to boot into safe mode and normal mode and it would not work. It would simply flash a blue screen and restart. After you run a test it is determined that the hard drive has failed. A new laptop is not an option at this point.
I bought a new hard drive and I ordered the HP recovery disk. What are the appropriate steps to complete this replacement?
The computer is out of warranty and so is the hard drive. The computer has Windows Vista on it. The failed hard drive was 160 gb, 2.5 ", SATA 1.5 gb/s, 8 MB cache. The news is the same except that it is SATA 3 gb/s.
This is my first time, replacing a hard drive. I'm confident about it, but I want to just make sure I do it correctly.
All you have to do after replacing the HARD drive is the following.
Start Notepad and open the CD/DVD drive. Insert the first disc of recovery. Hold the power button until the laptop stops. Press the power button to start the laptop that should now boot from the recovery disk and start the recovery process.

After more than 8 years my Macbook Pro has "finally" stopped working. I discovered the problem is the HARD drive and I wanted to replace it with an SSD, but I don't know if I can? Also to reinstall everything with a new hard drive do I need I know that I need the original DVD with the operating system but my superdrive drive obviously does more centuries ago (bad quality on the right?) and I left the DVD at home (Italy), now I live in the United Kingdom. As I do not think that my Mac has a Mode to retrieve Internet, can I just make a usb bootable with El Capitan (the one I was currently using) or I need a previous operating system? I think the native Mac with Leopard.
Hope someone can help me.
Thank you very much
You can install an SSD in your MBP as long as the form factor SSD 2.5 ". OWC and Crucial get my nod as the best for Mac compatibility.
You can get the installation disks in double for your MBP of Service model Apple customer. Or you can order this Snow Leopard disc:
You can use an external DVD drive or the DVD drive, another Mac connected to yours.
My warranty is over a few months ago and I need to replace my HARD drive which is unnecessary, because all the space is taken by the OS, I can not upgrade to Windows 10. Could you please help me how to recover my key Windows and drivers HP before changing my HARD drive + tips on replacing drive HARD would be also useful. There is no service HP here so I have to do it myself.
Thank you, I finally solved the problem by creating a partition under Advanced options and recovery of Windows drive, and you select Reset. Search for main windows and use Windows system image did not work with the version of Windows OEM.
I installed a new SSD after and an old man died. I have software and codes appropriate for Full XP and Windows Vista. I got the upgrade to Windows 7 Pro. I forgot Windows 7 is an upgrade and commissioned first (with all updates, antivirus, MS Office and some other programs) I now use the using the 30-day trial option. So here's the question...
I know the standard answer is to wipe everything and start loading XP or Vista then "redevelopment" of Win 7, but I have to ask. If I have good previous codes of my Windows operating system and the upgrade activation code for my Win 7, is there a way to convince the customer to activate my product remotely or just give me an activation code which will keep me upward and running? This will save a lot of time and effort for me.
Have you tried to restart by phone?
How to activate Windows 7 manually (activate by phone)
1) click Start and in the search for box type: slui.exe 4
(2) press the ENTER"" key.
(3) select your "country" in the list.
(4) choose the option "activate phone".
(5) stay on the phone (do not select/press all options) and wait for a person to help you with the activation.
(6) explain your problem clearly to the support person.
However, the requirements for the media upgrade is that you have an operating system already eligible such as Windows XP or Vista installed to use it. Since the Windows 7 end user license agreement.
15 UPDATES. To use upgrade software, you must first be licensed for the software that is eligible for the upgrade. After the upgrade, this agreement takes the place of the agreement for the software that you upgraded. After upgrade, you can no longer use the software that you upgraded.
So, if you are always denied, you will just have to reinstall Windows XP or Vista and let it do the verification of eligibility.
