Method 2: Watching Blu-ray movies with USB 3.0 Blu-Ray drive and UFUSoft Blu-ray Player without Conversion

First off, the Surface Pro 4 only has a single USB port. So, if you want to utilize more than one USB device, you’ll need a good USB hub. An external USB 3.0 Blu-Ray drives on your Microsoft Surface Pro 4. I recommended you to use Firstcom USB 3.0 BD-XL Blu-Ray Writer/Burner or Pioneer BDR-XU03 Blu-Ray Writer. And recently there is another USB 3.0 Read/Write External Blu-ray Drive with BDXL Support device, the product with no Y cable packed in, and the device powered up just fine with Blu-ray playback and recording. As the owner of a Surface Pro 4 with one USB port this was significant.

The last piece of getting your Surface Pro 4 to actually play DVDs and Blu-Ray discs is to install a powerful Blu-ray Player software that will actually perform the function that Microsoft left out of Windows 10.

Some suggested VLC, if you choose to install a free option like VLC or another favorite, you can do it. Then you will be allowed to play Blu-Ray discs on your Surface Pro. For me, i like UFUSoft Blu-ray Player, which is the remarkably comprehensive Blu-ray playing software, which is capable of playing various kinds of Blu-ray discs/ folders/ISO image files, 4K and 1080P HD videos and other popular video/audio formats, including MP4, MXF, MTS, MKV, AVI, FLV, MPEG, MP3 etc. Powerful functions into one software yet with zero quality loss on Windows 10 or macOS 10.12 Sierra.
