Re: Blu ray internal drive to USB?
Yes, those external USB drive bay things are just the same shaped slot as a laptop drive with a sata connector at the back.
You can do it (I have done it.)
don't worry about spending extra on USB3, Blueray VC-1 is around 20mbps bitrate and USB is about 3 times faster.
You want something to get power to the drive,
I've use an old Dell Power vault external tape drive chassis -it's just a power supply, switch and 5.25" bay that once had a tape drive, obviously you can rip all the SCSI stuff out of something like that.
I didn’t fight my way to the top of the food chain to be a vegetarian…
Im sick of people saying 'dont waste paper'. If trees wanted to live, they'd all carry guns.
