So, you're thinking about getting a BDB - (BluRay disc burner), so you can back up all your files - and maybe a watch movie disc or two on your computer.
If so, in order to burn you'll be wanting to get the burner AND the burning software, like PowerDVD, or WinDVD, or Nero or Tiny Burner, or some other kind of burning program. It's not complicated. From an Amazon review: "The Asus Black 12X BD-ROM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-ROM SATA Internal Blu-Ray Drive gave me the performance I expected without the headaches so common to today's technology. My computer had ample memory and hard drive resources. The Asus Black Blu Ray Drive replaced a CD burner using SATA. Installing the drive was simple as swapping out the CD ROM RW Drive and replacing it with this Blu Ray Drive. Just un-mount the old CD RW ROM drive and mount the Blu Ray ROM drive, properly reconnect connect two cables, reseal the machine and power that puppy up. In my case there was no need to load special Blu Ray Disk Burning software since Windows 7 immediately detected the Asus Black Blu Ray Drive and loaded its drivers. Within seconds Windows 7 announced that my hardware was ready to use. I placed a high quality blank verbatim 25 GB Blu Ray disk into this Asus Black Blu Ray Drive on a computer running Windows 7. Almost instantaneously Windows opened a burn list window. I copied and pasted items I wanted to back up to Blu Ray Disk. After making my final selections I started the Blu Ray burn process. Burning the Blu Ray Disk was effortless. I stayed off the system till the burn was over so the burn was not stressed for lack of computer resources. I have since burned 100's of blu ray disks with just two coasters in the bunch. For what I paid the Asus Black 12X BD-ROM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-ROM SATA Internal Blu-Ray Drive gave me more than my money's worth. I had zero trouble installing the Blu Ray Drive. I don't really have a choice but to give this Asus Black 12X BD-ROM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-ROM SATA Internal Blu-Ray Drive five stars because; my entire my experience with this device was trouble free."
