BD-R205 external - what is needed?

Michael
I am thinking about buying the Pioneer bdr-205, I have a new HP computer with a blu-ray player in it, with no room for a writer. What do I need to get to make the 205 external?
Thanks.

Hi and Welcome!

the cheapest way is to replace the BD-ROM by a BD writer.
If you insist on having the drive externally, then you need an external 5,25" enclosure that supports Sata drives. The external interface depends on what you have. USB2.0 HiSpeed is most common, but I’d personally prefer eSata if the computer has such a port.

P.S.: It’s better to have a new thread about this (thread hijacking is impolite), so I moved this stuff to a new one. :cop:

Thanks, won’t happen again. I am new, did not know.
