External Drive?

Post by MechaDangerous » Mon Mar 16, 2020 2:22 am

Hello everyone. I just recently built a new computer and I guess the thing now a days is that cases don't have drive bays for these things anymore and it's all RGB coloring everywhere. That being the case, I figure I need to buy an external drive. Is there a "go to" external drive for ripping my Blu-Ray movies? Hopefully there is! Thanks, everybody!

Your best bet is to get an internal drive plus an enclosure. For the most popular/recent recommendations start here:

Gotcha. I suppose that makes sense. I've never put a drive into an enclosure before. I do still have my original drive. It's an ASUS BW-16D1HT. I assume any drive fits in any enclosure? I dunno, I'll check the link you provided and go from there. Thank you!

I just passed on my tower PC to my son and put my Asus drive into an OWC Mercury Pro enclosure connected to an Intel NUC, and it’s working perfectly, was even able to install the latest MK firmware over USB.

I've got plenty of pre-built pre-flashed external drives for you.
