Plug in an external bluray-reader?
Im thinking of buying Samsung Blu-Ray Writer SE-506CB and I wonder if you can connect an external bluray-reader to the player powered by usb?


Would really appreciate if anyone could help me out. Dont want to buy one and then realize that it doesnt work... Tongue

Best regards

Almost certainly not. I wouldn't buy one in the anticipation that this would work at some point.

Yep you won't be able to play retail or protected discs just backups.

If you are thinking of buying for retail bluray playback via external USB ROM drive forget it in general. Nothing made 2012 onwards, that can do it therefore requiring the BD stack, will not have Cinavia, so you wont wont it.

A regular BD player would work on it's own and is cheaper.Shy

Some focus on problems and faults others on solutions and success... no question who is the happy one.
