You need to use an older version of PowerDVD (7.3 I think) to be able to play
BD content from your hard drive.
The good news though is that you can have versions 7 and 8 on your system at the same time.
[QUOTE=rendez2k;2182901]I’ve got a couple of BR rips on my HDD that won’t play in PowerDVD 8 - one appears to load using open media file on HD - I just point it to the folder and it loads but just displays black. The other won’t even load - when I point it to the rip folder the OK button doesn’t light. Could they be bad rips? Could there be some essential files missing from the rip?[/QUOTE]
