Blu-ray codecs cost money due to licensing, so you'll generally need to buy software like Arcsoft etc. Did your optical drive come with bundled software? Unless, I think you can use VLC - which is developing free playback. Not sure if that's out of Alpha yet.

yeah my drive came with software however when i installed it it said some stuff didnt install yet have appeared so will have another look, also when i insert a disc it doesnt recognise it first time round, could this be a driver issue or something?

Try plugging your drive into the ASMedia SATA controller.
The Intel controller will append "SCSI" to any devices you have plugged into it, causing confusion in some bundled software that verifies it's allowed to install based off of device names.

Try to keep your HDD/SSD on the Intel controller if you can.
The ASMedia one doesn't perform as well and I don't even know if it passes TRIM commands on to SSD media correctly.
