I changed my computer from Windows 7 Ultimate to Windows 8 Pro and my PowerDVD 12 doesn't play my blu-ray discs. I haven't tried DVD's yet. I've reinstalled PowerDVD and while it shows the file structure of the disc, it keeps saying the file types are unsupported. I've applied the updates and it's still no go. Any ideas other then get Linux will be appreciated.

Yes, I already had Media Center installed. I also have Cyberlink PowerDVD 12 installed. Everything worked when I did the upgrade from Windows 7 Ultimate to Windows 8 Pro. I developed registry problems about 2 weeks later and wiped my computer and did a clean install. That's when everything went north. Even with Media Center installed, Power DVD will not work. It's definately a bad install; but, I'm not sure what went wrong. I had to manually install the C++ libraries. They weren't installed this time. It took a while to figure out what the "side by side" error was that the program was generating. I don't remember the exact error, sorry. Now, I'm trying to figure out what else didn't get installed. I haven't had this much fun since an HP Laser printer started to fail and was knocking out my USB ports.

It was a bad install. From a bad copy. Before I wiped the drive I copied the file to a USB stick and somehow, it got corrupted there. Working on getting another download from Cyberlink.
