    I read a while back about someone who bought a external DVD drive and had to disable his internal DVD drive to get the external to work. Now I can't find that info, and I'm wondering if a external BR drive would screw up my iMac's internal DVD drive. Reason I want to get an external is so I can have complete portability and use it on a PC as well as my MBP when on vacation.

    The external drive I had in mind was the LG BE12LU30 which is a 12x External eSATA/USB 2.0 Blu-ray Disc Double-Layer DVD±RW/CD-RW Drive.

    I have 2 Bluray (one reader and one burner) externals on my IMAC - no issues at all.

    Mind if I ask... what brand/model burner and how you like it?

    I have an LG BR burner/HD-DVD player/DVD-CD burner and a BYTECC USB2/FW400 5.25" enclosure that has an internal SATA interface. Both from NewEgg.
