“Cyberlink PowerDVD Blu-Ray Not Playing or Working” Issues
Problem 1: Blu-ray disc won’t play on Blu-ray player: I have a powerdvd 10 version. When i use it to play blu ray disc, it failed. I get an error that says “You must update CyberLink PowerDVD now to continue the playback of this content” Then a Yes and No box. If I click Yes, then it says “Player application update” – “Update Complete”. If I click no, nothing happens. It just continues this loop over and over.
Problem 2: Why am I not able to play some Blu-ray movies? I just bought my first Blu-ray disc. Lo and behold, it won’t play. PowerDVD tells me to update the software. So I do. I start the software again. PowerDVD again tells me to update the software. So I do. I start the software again. PowerDVD again tells me to update the software. And once again, I do. And then PowerDVD won’t even run at all. It crashes. I can’t get anything.
Problem 3: PowerDVD won’t play Blu-ray: PowerDVD preinstalled on Lenovo computer came up with error message when launching and was forced to close. After updating, the progress bar of the DVD goes 99% and hangs there.
Problem 4: I cannot play Blu-ray Disc movies with CyberLink PowerDVD. What can I do? Why won’t my Blu-ray movie play with the Cyberlink PowerDVD software?
When you’ve encounter either one of the issues, you’ll be advised by Cyberlink support to upgrade to the latest version of PowerDVD. However upgrading may not solve the tough problems. Just like this guy:” Having already spent the cost of a hardware Bluray player ($100+) for their software equivalent, you can imagine I’m pretty reticent about being forced to it again. What’s worse is that I purchased PowerDVD in November 2014, meaning I had less than 18 months of trouble free use(!). Their latest version of PowerDVD is $125, and Lord knows how long that would function for…! Seeing how I legally own a Bluray player, and genuine Bluray discs, is there not any way I can manually update the AACS keys for PowerDVD myself?? This seems like yet another occasion where the pirates get a better deal than those of us who pay their money to do things legitimately :(“.
