Will Pioneer BDR-212xxx or 2212 work in external enclosure?

I am thinking of getting this external enclosure
and putting a Pioneer BDR-212UBK or BDR-212DBK or BDR-2212

Does anyone know if this would work ?

Or am I just better off getting a BDR-X12UBK ?


It should work, although I don’t know if it fits.
The info of the enclosure says: “5.25” SATA I and II optical drives (all CD, DVD, and Blu-ray drives with a depth up to 6.77 inches (17.2 cm))", the Pioneer’s depth is 18.1 cm.

One of the reviews even says “Too short for a Pioneer optical”, although it’s not mentioned which drive it was. Another review says it worked fine with a 209UBK, so I really don’t know.

I have these OWC MR3ukit & the Pioneer BDR-212DBK, the drive is too long to fit the enclosure, not a match. my old liteon fits on it

Thanks for the info guys.

I guess I will stick with the BDR-X12UBK.

Has anyone tried it ? I cannot find a review. The only ones selling it are the manufacturer’s website.
