To be able to play a Blu-ray disc in your PC, the DVD-Rom needs to be able to support Blu-Ray discs. If the DVD-Rom does not support this feature you will not be able to watch the movie. Alternatively, if the Blu-ray movie is stored on your hard disk as a single file (ISO, MKV, AVI, WMV) then you can use VLC to play the files. If you have Windows 8.1 the computer should be powerful enough to play Blu-ray video files. You can download VLC from its official website. Download, install, and use File > Open to watch the video.

If you want to play blu-ray discs in your PC, DVD-RW is not suitable, you need a blu-ray drive. Besides, a blu-ray player software is a must. VLC is free Blu-ray media player running on Mac, Win and maybe some other platform. It has already been widely used by Windows users as a media player to play all kinds formats, but actually, it doesn't work so well when comes to Blu-ray. You better try a Blu-ray player software from Macgo which is also free to download. After trial, you may decide whether to purchase.
