This optical player will come with a USB 2.0 Y cable. If the optical player requires more power from the PC, you will use two USB ports. One will be for data and one for power. You can see the manual in the link below if you need more information. https://bit.ly/2U0IhN1

So what's the final verdict? Does this unit write Blu-rays to a mid 2012 MacBook Pro running El Capitan? I've already tried the LG BP 60NB10 that I bought on Amazon and was not successful with this. That model also would not play a homemade DVD.
Asked by: Al
Yes, the LG Slim Portable Blu-ray/DVD Writer BH #LGWP50NB40 can write Blu-ray discs on a Mac 2012 running el Capitan, however, they would only be Data blu-rays. If you want to make blu-ray discs to play on a blu-ray player, you would need additional software.

All of the Pioneer DVD players/burners I own are Region Free natively (no need to hack anything). Is this player Region Free? I have DVD's from all around the world and I don't want to have to deal with a computer player that can not play DVD's/BD's from any region.
Asked by: Arturo
Yes, this player/writer has region protection. After using it multiple times on a specific region it would lock to the corresponding location.

External - Connects VIA USB 2.0, Silent Play Reduces Noise from Disc Spin During Movie Playback. Supports 3D Blu-ray Disc Playback, Supports BDXL (100GB Triple Layer) Disc, and RW DVD RAM.

Asked by: Marites
Yes it will to my MacBook Air but unable to blu-tooth it to my Apple TV. Have not tried connecting it with a USB mini jack to HDMI input into the TV directly, but hope it does not interfere with the LD player.
