The Samsung SE-506 External Blu-Ray Writer

Hi everyone,

Today, we will see the Samsung SE-506 optical drive:

This is an External Blu-Ray Writer that can burn CDs, DVDs, Blu-Ray and Blu-Ray XL media. I could not find a data sheet with the supported write speeds. This drive is already discontinued.

ImgBurn reports that the drive can read and burn all of the popular disc types:

This drive is a standard slim tray-loading device:

Samsung SE-506AB 1

It uses a Micro USB connector:

Samsung SE-506AB 2

Here, we can see the optical mechanism:

This drive is already discontinued and Samsung no longer makes optical drives for PCs. The unit seems to be reading discs just fine. I’ll try to test the burning part of it later.
