First time here, found through a PCAdvisor article. Hoping someone could help finding a way to play a Blu-ray disc on a laptop without an internal disc drive. Many thanks.

Go to amazon and do a search for usb blu-ray player and you will find a selection. If you do not have a program to play Blu-ray films VLC should work for instructions CLICK HERE

Plenty of USB drives out there, check that your laptop has a USB 3 slot available as that is what most of them are now.

Some of the most popular brands are:




Lite On


The OEM ones will be cheaper but come with no frills such as DVD playback software but freebies like VLC will take care of that.

Retail editions might include extra software for playback such as Cyberlink.
