Why would I need this external Blu-ray drive?
With the ASUS external slim Blu-ray writer, you can read and write data to large capacity Blu-ray discs, with the potential to hold between 25GB to 100GB of data, from a connected computer. Discs of this size are ideal for media applications or backups. CDs and DVDs can also be written and read using this external drive.

How do I connect the drive to my computer?
The ASUS Blu-ray Writer uses a USB 2.0 interface that offers two USB connectors. One of these connectors is used for the transfer of data between the drive and connected computer. The second USB connector is to supply the Blu-ray drive with power, so no additional external power supplies are needed.
This makes the drive extremely portable. It can be used with laptop or notebook computers, which is ideal if your device lacks the ability to read or write any optical media.

How fast can this drive read or write discs?
The ASUS external Blu-ray writer has a maximum read and write speeds of 6x for Blu-ray discs, 8x for DVDs and 24x for CDs.
The 6x technology used with this external drive makes it possible to create a 25GB Blu-ray disc in approximately 23.39 min*.

*Based on writing time for a 25GB BD-R (single layer) disc.

is playback via USB only - my TV has HDMI, component or scart input only, if usb output only, is there a practical way round this? If not this machine, any suggestions?

Asked by: chris
This is a USB drive for connection to a PC, if you want to play Blu-ray discs on a TV then simply purchase a Blu-ray player.
