sidefx: In what context? Ripping is generally getting the data off the disks to hdd, burning is writing to the disks. I think most PC blu-ray drives can burn DVDs but you'll pay a bit extra for ones that can write blu-ray.
Just wanting a USB blu-ray drive to rip from disk to HDD.
Kopkiwi: Anyone no if you can buy a blu-ray drive at retail in Wellington anywhere?
