ThrowgnCpr's guide to prepping a HD edit in Vegas (ripping & converting from Blu-ray)
I haven't scoured Craigslist for these, but a new external at newegg is ~$100 USD. You can find new offbrand external drives on eBay new $30-$50, and many used decent name brands for less than that. Internal drives for a desktop are much cheaper.

If looking for an external, and used, I'd probably keep a $50 USD cap.


All that said, I have no experience with the performance on external BD drives.

I use externals exclusively as my internal bd-w/r drive doesn't seem to work right on windows 10.
I live in a suburb of a pretty large metro area and I see externals for as cheap as $20. Like throw said, planning for around $50 is a good way to get one without hunting too hard.

I like windows 10. It's more an issue with having a computer that is 3-4 years old with a drive that the company hasn't updated a driver for.

Cheers, guys! Good to know (though I have to translate that to UK currency Wink)

yeah, driver issues are a pain. I personally hate Win10. I have had terrible experiences with it on multiple machines. But I say go with whatever works for your hardware + OS.

Anyway, I should note that this tutorial is very outdated. It's still quite functional, but my methods have evolved slightly in the last couple years. I will update this soon.

If you're using Craigslist, I'm sure you could trade certain services for an external drive.

Wow... great guide... but having a problem...

The avisynth script opens fine, but when I start saving it fails and says

"FFMpeg dll error reading frame = Error Unknown"  

I have the k-lite codec installed btw.  

Any ideas?
