I need to know what software to buy to make it work

Asked by: Staggerwing58
We appreciate your interest in this Optical Drive. The software recommended by the manufacturer is the CYBERLINK software, which should have come with the drive itself. For additional information or assistance, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000.

Hi, noticed that the write specs do not include BD-RW on the BU20N Blu-ray player; the specs only show BD-R. What is the difference between BD-R and BD-RW? Thanks!

Asked by: PaniBasia
BD-R is read only BD-RW is read writable
