Are you running XP? if so revert back to a driver 8.4 or earlier. Apparently ATi broke HDCP within drivers after this but only on XP. If you are running Vista then the newest drivers work fine.

If you dont want to downgrade drivers then AnyDVD may help. Download the trial from Slysoft and see if it works.

Your HD 2600 should play back BR discs without to many problems. I use an HD 3450 for my HTPC and you have a bit more power than I do.

For what it is worth;
I am running an Asus 3450 (low profile + low cost) in an HP Slimline AMD Dual Core 5000+, Vista Home Premium, 4GB ram. And have no problem playing my BD/HD-DVDs either from my LG GGW-H20L or from ripped files from my hard drives. My LG is connected via USB as well as a couple of External HDs.
This is at 1080P (video) or 720P resolution (desktop) to a 42" 1080P LCD.

My Quadcore 6600 is running a XFX 8600GT with Vista Home Premium, 4GB ram, feeding a 32" 1080P LCD.
Both cards work flawlessly with BD/HD-DVD playback. Both cards purchased with budget considerations alongside performance. Both cards play BD material from USB drives.
I use either PowerDVD or TMT as software players with TMT being the player of choice due to flexible HD file playback capability.
I think your Radeon 2600 should actually have a bit more ooomph than my 3450. However I did read somewhere about 2600 problems with HD/BD playback…check AVS forums HTPC thread and search for your card.
Wish I could help more.

You cannot use a mouse with a BluRay menu, it uses arrow keys and enter.

Something is not right though. Have you updated your copy of PowerDVD as it can get out of date very quickly (Blu-Ray keeps moving the goal posts unlike HD-DVD which is why it is the worst format).

Your Q6600 by itself is quite capable of playing back Blu-Ray without any assistance from the graphics card so even with a cheap pre-assistance graphics card it should still work. I would say its all down to the playing software.

Out of interest, what Blu-Ray is it you have problems with. New titles will need the newest release of PowerDVD as they include a new version of BD+ which encrypts areas of the disc and uses software to decrypt them meaning that if the playback software does not support BD+ you will have all sorts of problems.

-edit- You have the newest version of PowerDVD already

As long as you have the newest driver from ATi on Vista that you downloaded from ATi directly (www.ati.com, then display driver and finally go through and choose your O/S and card) then you have everything you need for playback. Do not change the driver at all as blu-ray playback needs a fully signed driver and any fiddling with a file removes this signing.

Only thing I can think of is some form of copy protection that is not working. If you have AnyDVD HD make sure you have the newest version as older version causes problems with new discs due to BR+. If you don’t have AnyDVD HD give it a try to see if it is some form of copy protection.

Only other thing I can think of is a compatibility problem between your drive and the motherboard. What motherboard do you have (or at least what chipset).

[quote=Burnsama;2168431]first pic before play BD movie second pic when I play BD movie [/quote]When you play a BD movie and in the same time you test with BD Advisor, the graphic driver will show red – it’s normal since the driver is being used.

If you are displaying to your monitor, I believe it will take the monitor resolution.

But if you are feeding it to HDTV, then you can set in ATI Catalyst or Display Properties to 720p, 1080i, 1080p etc.
