I'm trying to play bluray discs through the powerdvd program I got with my drive. Basically I don't want to pay for the PowerDVD 9 Ultra just yet (needed for windows 7), I was hoping to run the powerdvd 7 w/bluray in a virtual machine running xp or vista. I have found that vista recognises the BD-ROM and XP doesn't, so probably vista. Is there any way to use the full features of my graphics card? Instead of it virtualizing it's own graphics chip. I'm currently using Vmware Player. Many thanks!
