After burning a blu-ray disk, will I be able to play it on a blu-ray player that is attached to my television set ? Also, could you play the burned disk on a Playstation 3 that has blu-ray support ?

  • A. I do. Movies, You tube video, my photo gallery, and my music.

  • A. Depends on the brand and model of Blu-ray player you’re using. Certain brands and models can only support particular and a limited amount of audio and video formats on the Blu-ray disc.

  • A. I cannot speak for this particular model or Blu Ray in general. This technology might be better than DVD, but I was not able to successfully play discs on a DVD player. There is something in the format that just wasn't quite right. Perhaps there are other brands and higher priced models that do a better job, but my guess is that things you put in the players need to be very carefully formatted and professionally done. Any hopes you can simply record and go are pretty much mythical. If anyone else has had better results please share what you did.

  • A. I know that the disks will play on the PS3 because that is what I use as my Blu-ray player. I must guess that if it plays on a ps3 it will play on any other blu-ray player but I have no experience with other players.

  • A. Yes...to the question concerning playing burned disk on your standard bluray player....No to the PS 3 question...Sony uses different hardware encryption methods for the Playstation system.

After purchasing, I found that I didn't have the option to change the face plate to white or at least a color close to my Tower. All of the BD, CD and DVD internal drives I've purchased came with two face plates even if it was not stated on the package or in the fine print. This one did not. My computer and furniture is white. I need it for now, but I ordered another one that is almost indentical in color to my tower Manufactured by Lite-On. The drive performance is good. I just thought that option was standard, but it was not.

The only reason that I did not give this 5 stars is there was no software to play a Blu-ray movie. The drive installed easily with no problems and has given me none in the two weeks that I have had it. It burns regular DVD's and dual-layer discs quickly enough and reads all of the disks that I have placed in it. I have not had a chance to burn a Blu-ray yet so I can not comment on that yet. Besides burning a Blu-ray disk the other major thing that I would think that everyone who would buy this disk would do is play a Blu-ray movie. Therefore, why would you not provide any Blu-ray movie player software? They do give you the software to burn a disk but, they stop there. I have multiple players on my computer and none would play a BD movie. I had tried serveral free and shareware players then decided to go with Arcsoft's Total Theater which, works well with the drive. They loose a star for making me chase down the TT software and for loading and uninstalling 4 other pieces of junk software in the interim.

Easy installation. I replaced a DVD burner I had with the ASUS BW-12B1ST. Used the same SATA connection. I checked several online reviews and this burner kept coming up along with several others. This one was one of the favorites with high ratings and price was about the same price compared with Newegg.com and Amazon.com. The burner worked like I had hoped. Great with no problems. This was my first purchase at Walmart.com. The delivery time was fast. It was only a couple of days. It was like having Federal Express delivery but for free. I had it delivered to the local Walmart store. Printed out the emailed receipt, was in and out of the store in about 5 minutes. I found the best place to get blank Blu-Ray disks was at Microcenter.com. Walmart did not sell them yet. It takes awhile for the retail stores to catch up with the latest and greatest computer technology. I had the same experience when CD's and DVD's first came out. I highly recommend the ASUS BW-12B1ST Blu-ray burner and Walmart.com

This drive works great. It only contained an install disc for Power2Go7 and a Firmware update neither of which I installed. I simply slid the drive in, hooked the power and SATA cable to it and to the board in my PC and the drive was immediately recognized on start up and reads/rips/burns etc quite well. Windows supplies all drivers so no worries. Burned video played flawlessly and I used a cheap quality BD-R disc to test it. I would not expect a drive to include "video" editing, burning or really even playing software. Most PC's come with something already and there are plenty available out there and each person has their preference. Why increase the price for everyone who doesn't need additional software. I held off about 6 months before adding a second drive to my PC then saw this one for $50 after rebate and picked it up. Very happy with the purchase.

ASUS does NOT have support for their products. There are NO drivers available on their site for this item. Also, the software that comes with the BluRay Player does NOT PLAY bluray discs! You can make data copies on bluray and dvd. Anything specific you want to do with this drive, you will have to purchase everything separately (in addition to this drive & the included software).

Dear RealWalmartConnoisseur, <br /><br />Please understand that there is no need to install or update drivers with your unit as all of our ASUS optical drives are Plug-N-Play. If there’s a critical update for the driver, then we will post it to our download page. Blu-ray player software is usually not included so that the overall cost of the product remains reasonable and thus it lets you select the Blu-ray playback of your choice. The good news is that there are several Blu-ray players available for download and some are free. Please visit download.com and type-in "Blu-ray playback" in the search box. Should you require my assistance, please reach out to me. My email is cl-celeste@asus.com; please include case#2925920 in the subject line. ASUS Customer Loyalty is here to listen and respond to your concerns and to help you with a positive ASUS experience. <br /><br />Sincerely,<br />Celeste<br />ASUS Customer Loyalty

Easy to install. It went right to work without a glitch. Love it. Made a little whir sound but haven't heard that any more. I've made two 25GB Blu-Ray's so far. Excellent quality for sure. Made one expensive Verbatim coaster, unrelated to Asus writer. Enjoy.

This was purchased as an upgrade and added to compliment my dvd rewriter, unit install was easy, software install also. Now for those who do not know, units like this DO NOT come with BD player software. You are going to replace it anyway. I copied some files, music and photos, then viewed them through my BD player on my LED TV. pics were great to watch on 50" screen. Tunes played through AV amp. great unit for the money.
