Can someone recommended a good external blu ray dvd burner? Thanks
Honestly, almost all external drives are crap in one way or another due to being slim drives for the most part. I'd pick up a 5.25" drive bay enclosure like in the link below and put in a full size internal 5.25" drive. link: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vantec-NexS...040334?hash=item41b3c70ace:g:gL4AAOSw-kdX0e1x
As to brands themselves, i live by LG drives (in combination with Verbatim blanks). They've never let me down in over a decade.
What brand of internal drive would you recommended? Thanks
I said that in the last line LG, i use 3 of them (see signature)
Sorry, I overlooked that last line. Is the LG WH16NS40 a pretty good drive? I always use Verbatim discs.
Yup, it's the same as my bh16 just with a white font I think. And stick to verbatim, killer combo if you use the real ones (with azo dye logo).
Thanks for your help!
Do you know if the LG LG WH16NS40 is compatible with windows 8? That is my operating system.
Yup, all optical drives use the same windows driver as they did in the 90's (win 95+) nothing to worry about.
There is also the external LG BE16NU50.
If you choose the Vantec enclosure I would choose a Pioneer Model as they deliver better burn quality with mediocre Blu-Ray blanks.
P.S. in practice USB 2.0 isn't enough for 8x burning.
Some Controllers don't even manage 6x speed reliably.
