Blu-ray Playback Issues in Windows 8 PowerDVD

I'm running Windows 8 Pro on an Ideapad y570 (upgraded from Windows 7).

 

I installed the Lenovo patch for PowerDVD 10, which fixed the last PowerDVD headache I had back on Windows 7 (refused to update because there was "no internet connection", apparently a common problem - but the Lenovo patch fixed it). Now that I try to play a Blu-ray disc on Windows 8, PowerDVD 10 errors out after trying to load the disk. It either freezes altogether or states "The integrity of CyberLink PowerDVD is at risk - check your antivirus software for malicious activities or try reinstalling Power DVD 10."

 

Ran as administrator, nothing. Disabled Windows Defender and Firewall, nothing. Reinstalled (including patch), nothing.

 

Upgrading to a trial version of PowerDVD 12 was the only thing I've found that was sufficient to get the disc to play.

 

Poking around Windows 8 forums, most people are claiming it's a "planned obsolecence" on CyberLink's part, so that PowerDVD 10 won't work with Windows 8. So, two questions on my part:

 

1) Is there a way to get past this malware error message on PowerDVD 10?

2) If not - and since this is the software supplied by Lenovo to play disks off the integrated Blu-ray drive - is Lenovo planning on releasing a patch to make it run on Windows 8?

 

Thank you!

Same issue here. The product you sold us doesn't work with PowerDVD 10.

sorry to say that but this issue is not related to lenovo systems. to fix the issue you may need to order new version of the power dvd.

powerdvd 12 is windows 8 compatible with your windows 8 desktop and laptop.

So Lenovo ships us a laptop with Windows 8 and PowerDVD 10 and tells us that they are sorry and we need to buy software to use a product that was advertised to work out of the box....

 

 

I don't think so. I want to speak to a manager now.

Same issue here. This is absolutely ridiculous. I bought this product so I could play blu ray discs and now that I'm unable to do so I'm extremely unhappy. This needs to be fixed immediately.

Re: Blu-ray Playback Issues in Windows 8 PowerDVD

All Lenovo machines coming with Windows 8 have PowerDVD 10 on it- thus not working.
