    My current external bluray drive isn't useable. Out of two orders to Amazon for computer components (the other being a 4TB hard drive), both have failed.

    So now I'm looking at these two devices from Aria:

    http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Compo...roductId=59450

    Obviously, they are the same product. What I want to know is, what software comes with the retail boxed version? Does any software at all come with the OEM version?

    Ta very muchness.

    Given the price difference, I'd buy the boxed just in case it had some goodies.

    No one seems to offer anything on extras though. Then again, these things usually turn up with a copy of last year's version of any software, sometimes missing key features.

    Boxed stuff sometimes comes with hardware bits you don't get with OEM. Connectors for example. And better warranty cover.

          Wow! Forget the boxed version.

            Bleh. I'll go for the OEM version then I think. I have no intention of writing BD-Rs and very little intention of writing DVDs although it's not out of the question. The main purpose of the drive here is to create ISOs of all the stuff I still have on disc, so that I have backups on my new hard drive. Then, if I need the ISOs, I can use the drive to burn them to disc.

              For burning isos, just use imgburn. Free, simple, works great.
