I'm wondering if you could pull out the Blu-Ray writer and flog it on

I can't seem to find the answer anywhere, but could this be plugged into a pc, to allow playback of blu-ray discs, and can you use the burner to burn full hd video files from your pc's hard drive?
#4
Hmm looks like just the ticket. Anyone know if the blu-ray writer works wired via eSata or ethernet?

I don't believe so, from what i've read in the reviews. the br drive is restricted to a few function, no playback. however, i am not sure if this drive can be removed and used in a pc.
#7
From what I've read the BR drive can be used to play discs via i-scsi......

I'm looking for some 2TB discs to go in this.

what would be the options for backup of original bluray disks with this

Looks like Amazon matched the dabs price I posted a couple of days ago ... still waiting for mine and also looking for 2Tb discs
#10
There is a Synology 2 bay at Aria and Dabs for approx. £135. These LG ones look good but don't seem to be very popular. Blue ray is back up only, but still useful.

No it shouldn't - amazon deliver is down the right hand side........
#17
Phew! - i was gonna order this yesterday from Dabs
noticed the amazon price match but free delivery this morning and got it ordered
looks like i was one of the lucky ones

i've been checking all over the net to find out about the usage of the bluray writer
ive read several people saying that it works fine thru iscsi and shows like a local virtual drive
i'm taking that and what others have said in that it allows full usage of progs like Nero

we'll see
#18
Looks like a great price....probably swap the bluray drive with the DVD RW I have in my PC

OK but the Amazon deal is for delivery in "1 to 2 months" whereas Dabs has them in stock and the OP for Dabs should be getting any heat.

agree, qnap and synology make the best nas......in fact id say synology have the most features now and are cheaper than qnaps.....otherwise go for a whs server like the hp mediasmart i have - tons of official and unoffical whs / product support

this looks limited - shame as a 2 bay nas and blu ray writer is a steal @ £130, writers alone are at least £80

checked the dvd version and some bad reviews re: support, seems product is fine but support and instrcutions are lame...that ones same as this 2 bay nas but with a dvd writer £99

not bad idea but depends how locked down the firmware is eg will the nas still work properly with a dvd rw, you know it should be a simple swap but i bet it isnt....14million screws - cables soldered onto motherboard, etc

yep have this disk, its slow but thats not a bad thing...imo faster ones seem to fail quicker and anyway if you just using them for backups then thats fine, slow on 1st backup and then should be fine after that unless you are downloaded deleting 100gb's of stuff a day!

I have one of these, and if you buy and install AnyDVD you can then use the blueray drive to watch blueray discs.

Hmm looks like just the ticket. Anyone know if the blu-ray writer works wired via eSata or ethernet?


I've had one of these for just over a year now it's a top piece of kit.

I have had the Blu-ray disk working across Ethernet using iSCSI.

iSCSI is installed by default on VISTA and Win 7 but not XP. The only real problem I had was setting up the synchronisation between the NAS and my PC once I had sorted that out it worked a treat.

After setting up the iSCSI I used the software supplied with the NAS box to watch Blu-RAY discs.I also copied a Blu-RAY disc to hard drive using DVDFab. Mounted it as a virtual drive and viewed it with the Supplied software no problems. I haven't tried to write a disc.

My NAS is using a pair of 1tb Samsung discs which the literature says is the maximum size disc although there are reports on forums that it will support a pair of 2tb discs.

I use it as a central media store for the house it can easily support 3, different, video streams for watching film, music.

For me it's been one on my best buys.

Had one of these for 6-8 months since last on here at £199 with twin 500GB drives and BDRW and would gladly pay this again. It works with win 7 and Vista PC's in the house over i-SCSI initiator included within windows.
ANYDVD HD is your friend for getting blu-rays to play over the network although I constantly see my network traffic hit 93 MBbps which is pretty much the max of std Ethernet...may be a worthwhile upgrade to get a Gigabit switch at the same time if bluray streaming is a priority when there is also other network traffic....The NAS has a gigabit ethernet port included...

All in all this has been a great buy

Dabs currently have this on sale @£129.99 with the blu-ray.

currently 64 in stock I can't recommend this highly enough.
#34
Is there anyway to backup a bluray disk onto the hardrive on this unit, i have a netgear readynas and wondered if this was any better. Also for any owners does this hibernate and what sort of current would it draw in this state. I understand it takes 22 watts in powered up mode.

I went with the BT shop, postage was £1 cheaper - BT owns Dabs apparently

Hi FuzzyNavel
i noticed you use Anydvd hd with this Nas - have u truid ripping from discs ?
have u also tried burning ISO's with the burner through iscsi?
#37
If you set up iSCSI you can then, with the correct software, rip the disc directly to the NAS box via your PC and the network directly to the NAS box. I've used DVDFab and created an ISO image this way.

Can't remember the current when quiet. I seem to remember only a few watts.

Bt works out more as you have to add postage, it works out £135.21. The other chap is right, dabs is cheaper.(_;)


Can anyone confirm that these work with 2x2tb drives? If so which make?
