need ultra slim blu-ray burner for laptop

Postby TOmeish » Sat Apr 01, 2017 11:04 pm

I just bought a Lenovo 17.3" IdeaPad Y700 Notebook and it is FAST! However it does not have an internal optical drive and was hoping someone could recommend a good external blu-ray - ultra slim 3.0usb - burner that would be compatible.
I'm running B4W 8.3 with Arabesk 6. TIA

Well as usual got no help from here so received info from other 'video community support site' and went with Pioneer BDR-XD05S slim ext. burner. Seems to work great with my notebook once I went to Pioneer website to download a driver for 'Quiet mode". $74.99 @ BestBuy + tax, was the cheapest out there. USB 3.0 supplies the power to it with no problems.

If I could make a suggestion, when you need an answer in 24 hours or less maybe you should call on a user that is well-versed in Casablanca (there are several! Even your dealer) for help rather than just posting generally. Not trying to be nasty but you sound rather irate about the situation. Looks like you got your situation under control and I'm sure some of us would like to say thanks for your information.

True Beth. Thanks for the info. Your not being nasty just honest. I guess I'm spoiled whereas I have other forums I belong to and sometimes I get a response ( or I will respond) within a few hours after posting.
