HC2 with Blu-ray drive

Unread post by jgarr » Tue Jul 30, 2019 3:40 pm

Can the HC2 be used with a DVD or Blu-ray drive instead of a hard drive?

I don't think the case will fit but that's OK. I just want a way to connect a full size Blu-ray optical drive to my network for ripping discs (transcoding from a different machine).

If your USB Blue-ray disk burner works with a Linux PC, it should work with HC2 too.

Thanks for the quick reply. Yes, the drive works in Linux. :)

Okay. You might need an external power supply if the power output from the HC2 USB port is not sufficient.

BTW, which model do you have?
Is it compatible with a 100GB disk BDXL-R?
