Use with Windows Vista / 7 / 8

The Kanguru BD-RE does not require any additional driver files for use with

Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8. These operating systems have builtin drivers that support USB connection with the USB Blu-ray drive. Simply connect your Kanguru BD-RE USB2.0 Blu-ray drive to your PC through a USB port and turn it on. Windows will automatically detect the new hardware and install the necessary driver. When the installation has completed successfully, you will find a “BD-RE Drive” icon displayed under My Computer.

Removing your Kanguru BD-RE

Be sure to follow these safe removal procedures. Failure to do so may result in data corruption.

1. Click on the Safely Remove Hardware icon in the taskbar.

2. Select the USB Mass Storage Device with the corresponding drive letter for your Kanguru BD-RE from the popup menu.

3. A message will appear informing you that it is safe to remove the device.

You can now disconnect the USB cable.

If you receive a message that the device cannot be removed, close any programs or windows that may be accessing the device and then try to safely remove it again.

WARNING! Do not disconnect a USB drive from your computer while copying files to or from the device or while files or applications stored on the drive are in use. DOING SO MAY RESULT IN LOSS OF DATA.

Use with Mac OS X

Simply plug in the Kanguru BD-RE to your Mac and the operating system will automatically install the necessary driver. Once the driver has been installed a CD/DVD/BD icon will appear on your desktop whenever a disc is inserted into the drive.

Note: The CD/DVD/BD icon will only appear on your desktop when a disc is inserted in the drive. You will not see a CD/DVD/BD icon on your desktop if the BD-RE is connected but there is no disc present.

Removing your Kanguru BD-RE

To properly remove the device from your computer, you need to first eject any disc in the drive. Your system may freeze up or give you an error message if you remove the device without properly stopping it first.

To properly eject a disc from the drive, drag the CD/DVD/BD icon from your desktop to the trash bin. This will safely eject the disc from the drive. Once the disc has been removed you can safely disconnect your Kanguru BD-RE. Your system may freeze up or give you an error message if you remove the device without properly stopping it first.

Once the disc has been removed you can safely disconnect the USB Cable. If there is no disc in drive, there won’t be a CD/DVD/BD icon on your desktop.

In this case you can simply disconnect the USB cable.

Note: Apple has not officially supported Blu-ray playback in Mac OS X yet.

There are several software solutions that allow you to write to Blu-ray discs, but no applications for playback of HDCP video.

Playing Blu-ray movies

To play a Blu-ray movie on your computer, there are several things you will need in addition to your Kanguru Blu-ray drive. First you will need Blu-ray playback software and HDCP supported hardware.

Important! Due to copyright protection features, certain requirements must be met in order to playback BD movies on a computer. When using digital video connections, both your monitor and graphics card must support Highbandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP). Please refer to your monitor or graphic card manufacturer’s web site to see if your hardware supports HDCP.

Some video cards that currently support HDCP:

• nVIDIA: GeForce 7800 GTX 512 / 7900 GT / 7900 GX2 / 7900 GTX /

7950 GX2 / 8600 GS / 8600 GT / 8600 GTS / 8800 GTX or higher with

256MB min memory.

• ATI: Radeon® X1950/ HD2300/ HD2400/ HD2600 series or higher with

256MB min memory.

Graphic card driver shall meet AACS compliance criteria. Please consult your graphics card vendor for proper driver solution.

Certain software (i.e. particularly those including Video playback) may require a considerably increased performance PC to provide acceptable results. While this Blu-ray drive can read DVD-video or BD-MV(BD-ROM) discs, decoding them for display requires separate MPEG, H.264 or VC-1 decoding that is done by separate hardware (either an MPEG, H.264 or VC-1 decoder card or MPEG,

H.264 or VC-1 decoding done by your video card), or separate software that you install to do MPEG, H.264 or VC-1 decoding.

Note: Apple has not officially supported Blu-ray playback in Mac OS X yet.

There are several software solutions that allow you to write to Blu-ray discs, but no applications for playback of HDCP video.
