Thinking of getting a Blu-Ray player
 
Following configuration (laptop):

Intel Core i5 (2.26 GHz)
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470
4 GB RAM

Are there actually drives that would work with this? How much do they cost? Is an adapter required?

I never dealt with a Blu-Ray system before, so excuse all the questions:)

Since it's a laptop, unless you're willing to pay a lot of money you'd need an adapter. And by adapter I mean external blu ray drive.

Which is what I had to do.

We got a blu-ray player when we bought a new TV and as of today, we only own one blu-ray disk

None. We are just using it as a normal ass DVD player as of now. The picture's better though

Alright, IŽll check the local stores and amazon to see what price range these things have around here.

Bought my first Blu-Ray (Stargate) just to find out that no software I have (MPC, VLC, the standard Media player) will play the thing. Any suggestions?

Bought PowerDVD 10.

Just bought Gran Torino. Cant take any screenshots with PowerDVD 10, though. Suggestions?
