Hi FOlks, I would like to get a blu-ray burner to use with my dv7 laptop. It has an i7 processor and 4 gig of ram, which should be enough horse power to do the deed. I tried a Panasonic external, and the first disk would only play on the laptop, the second one did not complete the burn. Any recomendations?

Below is the link to the service manual for your notebook:
Pelase see chapter 3, pages 31 & 31 for the list of supported optical drives.
Looks like you have a choice of two.

Not to be a bother, but if you have an opinion I would welcome it, Do you think I would be better using an external drive like an ASUS BW-12DIS or the LG BE12LU38? I tried a Pioneer external and the first disk could not be read outside the laptop and the second failed to write.

I don't really have any working knowledge of blu-ray players, or which is better than which.
I assume you have installed the special software necessary to read and burn blu ray disks?
