Combined standalone Blu Ray player and external PC CD RW Drive

  jvc2012 15:02 14 May 2012

My laptop internal optical CD drive has packed-up and I was wondering if there is such a thing as standalone Blu Ray Player that can double as an external CD RW drive.

I want to be able to connect the Blu Ray player (part) to my Optoma DV10 MovieTime projector (it has a built in DVD player but not Blu Ray) via the HDMI input socket. We don't have anything to play Blu Ray at the moment.

Fruit Bat, Thanks for the link. There are a lot of good sounding blu ray players there but lacking the dual functionality. However, it gave me a new buzz word to add to my search which has yielded possibilities - its the word Combo!

e.g. The LiteOn External Blu-ray Disc Combo is an easy way to add Blu-ray playback to your computer. ... Setup was easy – all we had to do was connect the drive to two USB ports ... with HDMI out, it makes an excellent portable Blu-ray player that can be connected quickly to a HD TV
