This is why I always enter bogus emails in order to download. There's no reason to give it out in order to download a driver that will make the product I bought work correctly.

anecdotal post a little more credit if you'd spelt 'BlueRay' correctly.

I bet you think Sony invented BlueRay as well don't you?
