Currently, there are USB 3.0 external BD-XL writers in the market. I just wonder when I connect the USB 3.0 external BD-XL writer to the USB port of a TV, whether any of them can:
locate media files in a data DVD/BD and play these files, treating the BD-XL writer as a USB Flash drive, and/or
direct playback of a Bluray video disc
It would be nice if the BD-XL writer can double as a DVD and BD player. However, will the USB port on the TV be able to supply enough current to drive the BDXL writer,especially the TV only has USB 2.0 ports?
Most USB 3.0 drives is solely powered by the USB port, but I don’t want to get a USB 2.0 drive, as it would take forever to read everything out of a 125GB BD-XL disc!
