Burning 1080p BluRay Movies


 Burning 1080p BluRay Movies
topic by BoxdenSleuth - 11-08-2013, 07:40 AM - Boxden > Tech Questions and Answers


I download the 1080p movies, but I was recently considering purchasing a BluRay burner. I always used to burn DVDs, so I understand the process, but I want to make sure it's just as simple and doable with BR.

Would either of these be good?

Amazon.com: DIGISTOR External Blu-ray Burner USB 2.0 with Multimedia & Archive Suites (Tray Load): Computers & Accessories

Amazon.com: Samsung SE-506BB/TSBD 6X USB2.0 External Slim Blu-ray Writer Drive (Black): Computers & Accessories

Also, what kind of programs would I need to burn the .mkv files?

Thanks in advance and I will prop all answers. > Burning 1080p BluRay Movies - Photo posted in Tech Questions and Answers | Sign in and leave a comment below!

I'd get a Pioneer. I would have suggested a Plextor but their drives are just rebranded Lite-Ons now.

I still buy movies, because I like the physical copy. I am currently streaming with Vuze, but I want a way to have the physical copies without buying tons of #### retail.

Props to both of you

I am not looking to rip anything. I download 1080ps that I don't plan to buy, but I would like to burn to have the physical copy. I would still buy #### I really like, but just random stuff you like but don't love, I'd take the burn't copy.

You don't need a BR burner to burn 1080p .mkv movies. You can use a normal DVD player, a$suming the file is under 4.7gb which in most cases they are.

Now if you plan on burning movies that are over 4.7gb you still don't need a BR burner, you can use a DVD-R DL, which can hold up to 8.5gb(per side 16gb total). Now a days, most new DVD/BR readers can read these types of disk, so you good.

The only time you would need a BR burner is if you want to make perfect 1:1 copies of a Blu ray movie. Which honestly, with BR discs being as expensive as they are, it ain't really worth it. You can get 1080p perfect blu ray quality with 7-8 gb. You can get GREAT blu ray quality 1080p quality with 3-4gb. And you can get good/acceptable 1080p quality for 1.5gb-2.5gb, only thing that suffers is the audio.

If need more info let me know. For burning to DVD's/DVD DL I use ConvertXtoDVD5, there are many options out there though like IMGburn, Nero, etc.
