Blu ray drive options

Has anyone in the UK found where to source a 9.5mm blu ray drive from? Only ones I can find are on eBay from China and I'm a little skeptical about doing that. I was wondering if you could somehow conversation a desktop blu ray drive to an external usb one?

Search for a USB to SATA enclosure if you want to do that.

There are loads of 9.5mm blu ray drives on Amazon from third party sellers. Some of them are in the UK. Go look there.

 

You'll need to check that they come with a bezel though or find something that'll fit.

 

You'll also need to get the retaining bracket.

A lot of the ones on Amazon have no health and appear to ship from China too or I assume so given the shipping times.

No. You need a slimline SATA cable or adapter such as https://www.lambda-tek.com/HP-683358-001~sh/B887834&relatedprods=y#productTop

 

The adapter you linked to is for connecting a SATA HD/SSD. Laptop optical drives have a smaller socket.
