Connecting External Blu-ray Devices
If you’re hoping to connect a Blu-ray device to an Android tablet, then the chances are you are going to have to wait. While it might be a great way to enjoy HD movies on your slate, you best bet is to rip the Blu-ray disc and copy the data from your PC to your Android tablet (the same would be true of an iPad).
Things are a lot simpler for owners of Windows tablet PCs, as external Blu-ray drives are quite common and can be connected to your tablet via USB cable.
Such devices typically cost around $100, and since they are USB devices, they come with the necessary driver software built in – you can literally plug and play without any concerns over compatibility.
Also note that some devices use the e-SATA connector, so these should only be purchased to use with a suitable tablet PC. If your tablet PC doesn’t have an e-SATA connector, then you should either swap your drive for one with a USB connector or find an ExpressCard expansion card with an e-SATA adaptor.
As with a USB Blu-ray drive, a device with an e-SATA connector can simply be plugged into your tablet PC and will be immediately detected and ready for use.
