LG GGW-H20L Software

I’ve just purchased a LG GGW-H20L blueray/HD reader and it comes as part of the package with PowerDVD Ultra 7. I’ve done an update to 7.3 and I can’t seem to find any details on the limitations, if any, of this version compared to retail. Does anyone know? Also, is it possible to update to v8 from this?

Many thanks.

The software that came with the drive will work just fine for you. If you use PowerDVD to play HD DVD discs then you should not upgrade to Version 8.

Version 8 has dropped support for HD DVD and will only play Blu-ray. You can still use Nero Showtime for both formats but you will need to buy the H-Def plug-in from Nero.
