Default external blu ray drive - 01-15-2011, 07:47 PM

I'm thinking of getting an exteral blu ray drive for my duo. Just wondering has it got the specs to run one, and if anyone has one with theirs can they recommend a good one just to watch blu ray movies and burn dvd/cds.

The Duo comes with a Broadcom Crystal decoder card, right? It should be capable of decoding Blu-Rays, but I don't think any official Blu-Ray software will work with it, due to copy protection paranoia. (I could be wrong, though)

If you use "evil" software to rip the Blu-Rays, you might just be able to play 'em on the Duo.
