    Hey guys! I'd really, really like to play Blu-Ray movies on my 24" iMac, as the screen is beautiful. I know I can't do it in OSX; but if I get this, will it 100%, for sure, work in Windows Vista:

    Will I run into playback problems? I noticed people saying I needed other software; but won't VLC work just fine? Also; will my iMac give me any problems with copyright protection?

    Thanks!

    You may run into HDCP problems. Only way to know is to install the BD software from the package and try playing it on the iMac.
