177.98 - no Blue-Ray support for 8600M and Vista 64-bit?


Recommended Posts

I have installed the 177.98 drivers on my Dell XPS M1530 laptop with Vista 64-bit. I cannot seem to make the Blue-Ray drive work. I use Cyberlink PowerDVD 8 to play my disc, but I get the error:

"Incompatible graphics driver. Please make sure your graphics driver meets the minimum requirements.... error code = 0012

Please run the BK / HD Advisor tool for more information."

When I run this tool it says everything is ok except for my graphic cards driver which it detects as:

and it gives me this solution:

"We recommend that you have graphics card drivers that support HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) standard. Both of ATI Catalyst and nVidia ForceWare drivers can support Blu-ray Disc playback. Please make sure you download and install ATI Catalyst 7.12 and NVIDIA ForceWare 174.53 or later version. Please visit the home page of your graphics card manufacturer to download the most recent drivers."

How do I fix this issue?

The reason why I am using the drivers from this site is because Dell does not provide me with 64-bit drivers from NVIDIA - only 32-bit.

Please see this thread:


Basically, you need to use a WHQL driver with its original (unmodified) inf. You can get away with newer WHQL drivers that aren't designed for your card by using the "Have Disk" method of installation, and lying to it about what card you have.

Great! Thank you!

I'm using the driver to the 8700M from NVIDIA's website. Works like a charm.
