Default Nero 9 = No blu-ray playback...a downgrade, not an upgrade

Anyone else disappointed with Nero 9 not supporting blu-ray playback?

This is bull****.

I thought Blu-ray playback required the purchase of a separate plug-in. Is it not available for Nero 9?

That is crap. Looks like I'll be sticking with 8. Thanks for the heads up.

Yeah, they won't give me a refund.

I flat out told them I wanted my money back from the "downgrade" and they said that's not "company policy", after which I said "this purchase will be my last with [your] company"

If you paid by CC, you might be able to file a dispute or ask for a chargeback. Couldn't hurt.

I just bought PowerDVD 8 Ultra, so I'll be using that for DVDs and Blu-rays from now on.

I'll use Nero for the occasional burn.

PowerDVD 8 has some bugs of its own though, like playing a disc sometimes makes the play window just a black screen and I have to stop and play it again for it to work. Maybe it's the 180 drivers.

This is why most stayed with 7.3.

The Blu-ray plugin works with Nero 9. I have used it since Nero 7 and it worked nice with Nero 9 to watch, edit and burn Blu-ray/HD material.

LOL So there is a plugin? ::

It's lame you have to buy it extra, but at least it's there and works across multiple versions.
