Our take on the Fusion Research DVD/Blu-ray Drive

by Steve Kindig
Fusion

Connect this drive to your computer to load DVD or Blu-ray movies from your PC onto the Fusion Research Rocket Movie Server. And if your computer doesn't have a Blu-ray drive, this is an easy way to add that capability.

You could also connect this drive to the Rocket server and be able to play DVD or Blu-ray discs directly, without importing them into the server. That's a great option for movies you've rented or borrowed. And finally, if your computer isn't available, you can connect this drive to the Rocket and import a DVD movie to the server. (Note: Blu-ray movies still need to be loaded onto the Rocket via your PC.)

Highlights:

  • optical drive supports playback of Blu-ray (BD-ROM, BD-R, BD-RE) and DVD (DVD-Video, DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+RW)
  • mini-USB (type B) port
  • included 2-ft. USB cable has two Type A USB connectors on one end and a mini-USB connector on the other
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Features

Overview: The Fusion Research Optical Blu-ray/DVD Drive (FR-BDD) connects to your Windows or Mac PC for importation of Blu-ray or DVD disc onto your the Fusion Research Rocket Movie Server (810RKT15TB, sold separately). The optical Blu-ray/DVD drive can also be connected directly to the Fusion Research Rocket Movie Server for direct download of DVD movies (not Blu-ray) onto the Rocket Movie Server. In addition, when the optical Blu-ray/DVD drive is connected directly to the Rocket Movie Server, you can play back both Blu-ray and DVD discs (but not capable of downloading Blu-ray).

Note: Due to the size of a Blu-ray disc, you cannot directly load a Blu-ray movie onto a connected Rocket Movie Server. You must import a Blu-ray movie through your PC.

Disc Compatibility: The Fusion Research optical Blu-ray/DVD drive supports playback of Blu-ray and DVD discs.

  • Blu-ray: BD-ROM, BD-R, BD-RE
  • DVD: DVD-Video, DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+RW

USB Port: The Fusion Research Optical Blu-ray/DVD Drive (FR-BDD) is equipped with a single mini-USB (type-B) port. It comes with a USB cable that is terminated with a single male mini-USB (type-B) port one end, which plugs into the optical Blu-ray/DVD drive; and two male USB (type-A) ports, which plug into your PC or Rocket Movie Server.

Note: Both USB (type-A) connectors of the included cable must be connected to either your computer or Rocket Movie Server.
