    Hi, i have just bought an LG N2B1 with an integrated blu-ray writer. I wanted to use the blu ray drive to play blu-ray films on computers connected to the NAS. I can see the blu-ray drive as a network disc drive, and open the folders on the blu-ray film to see the contents fine. But when i come to play it power dvd 8 says not compatible with format. I have looked at LG's support page and they say the drive can be used to play video from the drive on the network, but not encryted video like a movie disc. I was wondering if there would be a way for me to play encryted video blu-rays (ie shop films) from the network blu-ray drive on all my computers. I only want to use the drive to play Blu-ray's on all my computers from the one drive. I think the computer software is struggling to play the file from the network drive, because i am having to search for the folder by going through computer explorer, through the NAS shortcut and its to much for the software to handle. Would it work if i mapped the NAS Blu-ray drive on the computer, so it shows as a disk drive for that computer, and if so how would i do this.
