Might have been better to start two threads but I'll try it here: 1. What is a recomendation for a good external Blue ray drive? I'm about to pull the trigger on this one but would like some other opinions. My main goal with this drive is to rip Blue Ray discs. 2. I need method of converting VHS tapes(home videos) to digital format. I have looked at the Roxio but it has bad reviews.
