I would like to purchase a blu ray burner but all the externals out there seem to be a bit pricey. I was thinking that there has to be a way to build your own. I have a lacie D2 enclosure that i could use to put in the drive but i dont know if the blu ray connections will work in there. Any ideas or suggestions? i am treading in uncharted territories over here and have no idea where to begin.
i have a macbook pro which i think would be capable of playing the discs and burning. i also have a pentium 4 HT PC with a Ati Radeon x300 videocard. i would be basically using this setup to burn and not play. would it make a difference? can i burn the disc even if my videocard cant support it? Sooo clueless!!!
HELP!!! Please!!:eek:
Thanks in advance for any response back.

You can purchase a 5.25 drive enclosure, there are many specially made for internal Blu Ray drives. Your computer's ability to burn a blue ray disc will not be affected by your video card, but by your hardware; especially your CPU.

A P4 is more than capable of writing a blue ray disk. It is only data and the transfer rate to Blue Ray is lower than that to a disk.
