Im thinking of buying a blu ray and hd drive for my pc, but instead of burning the discs is it possible to put them on an external hardrive instead?

any help would be much appreciated.

What exactly are you looking to do? You haven't actually said!

Why? They're between 25 and 50GB a movie. Keeping them on discs is far more practical, especially since the blu-ray disc has a much better protective coating than DVD does.

If you were asking the other way around (how to store movies onto BD-R) it would make far more sense.

^^^^^ What he said,

if its for the actual film rather than the quality then be sure to by the discs that have "digital copy" they allow you to download the full movie to your hard drive to watch on your PC or portable video device (ie ipod)

im not downloading them, im buying the discs. But I want to store them onto a hardrive so that the rest of my family can watch them.

You didn't read his post properly! He said to look for new releases which have the option to download (or copy) the movie to another device such as iPod or PSP. The new X-Files has this option for definite as I've seen it.

Just to clear this up, unless the disc specifically states as above, any method of duplication of the movie breaches copyright law - read the back of the movies you're buying and it'll tell you there. There's really no point whatsoever trying to rip 50GB worth of content to a HDD. How are the rest of the family going to watch it? You're talking about 40-50 Mbps bandwidth needed for most Blu-Ray movies, which exceeds 802.11g for starters. Least of all if more than one person tries to watch something it'll bring your entire network to a standstill.
