Upgrading rewriter to Bluray

  bazza11 18:01 29 Nov 2011

I have a 4 year old Dell Inspiron 530 desktop with Intel Core Duo E675 @2.66GHz, 4GB RAM, and NVIDIA GeForce 8600GT, with 2x300GB disk drives. I am running Vista Home Premium 32bit. I have bought a Panasonic HDC-SD90 full HD camcorder and would like to create Bluray discs from my edited footage. Can I just buy and install an internal Bluray rewriter, and a separate player to connect to my tv? Anything I should look out for in terms of compatibility? Thanks.

just to let you know that 2 years ago after I had placed the order with Dell w7 i860 6gb RAM vostro desktop I had asked them(Dell) whether I could play/write Blueray discs, think I was told something about chipboard support as well and they could not do it as the pc was on its way to me. Suggest contact Dell support to know first hand? Good luck.

Hi first I would use this to check whether your PC is up to it Cyberlink bluray Second Why bother you can put your HD onto a standard DVD that will play on a bluray player as HD albeit maybe a max of about 20mins
