PC Blu-Ray driver

Post by deso992511 » Fri Aug 12, 2011 6:26 pm

Hi everyone! Sorry about my english, i'm italian .
i've a question to you... i need a new optical drive on my pc and i'll buy it soon. until now i used only DVD player but i would like to upgrade to bluray player. So the question is... Does exist a 3d blu-ray PC drive player? it is better than only a blu-ray player (not 3d).

Thank you

As far as I know it is the software that is important.

The drives are not specifically 3D or not 3D - it is up to the software to do the 3D part.

You will also need a video card that can output 3D signals over encrypted HDMI otherwise you will not be able to view 3D (or a 3D capable laptop would work too).

In fact if you want to display using a digital connection for Blu-ray it needs to be encrypted HDMI (not just DVI) for Blu-ray software to work properly.

Hope this helps!
