Follow these steps to begin watching a movie.
  1. Insert the 3D movie disc into the Blu-ray player on your PC.
  2. It may take a minute for the movie to load. When loaded, the PowerDVD screen automatically opens. To start the movie, press Play in the toolbar at the bottom of the screen.
  3. If the movie does not open automatically when the disc is inserted, click the icon in the Windows 7 taskbar, or go to Start, and click CyberLink PowerDVD.
  4. Put on the 3D glasses and watch the movie.
