I was looking to buy external blu-ray writer but I can't find any in Indian Market that supports all regular blu-ray formats along with Ultra HD Blu-ray disc & 3D Blu-ray movies.

However I found 2 internal blu-ray writers which support everything I need. But I am not sure if internal writer will work with any random enclosure or Sata to USB converter cable that we find on amazon. I know that Sata internal hard-drives work easily using even the cheapest enclosures but I have no idea what type of enclosure works perfectly for full size 41mm height Blu-ray drives. I also don't know if those enclosures/case or sata to usb cables will work in Plug & Play USB mode with optical drives.

Please help if anyone knows, how I can get it to work without any problems.

BTW, can you please check the amperage of your BR Writer?

The adapter that comes with the sale is rated 2A, you must make sure that your BR Writer use less than 2A on the 12V.

Can't find power rating for any internal writer.

I am looking to buy 1 of these : LG WH16NS60 or ASUS BW-16D1HT

ASUS BW-16D1HT does not support 4K Bluray out of the box but I read some reviews on amazon that said by downgrading the firmware it will start reading UHD Bluray discs. Not sure if I should gamble with ASUS BW-16D1HT , what if i can't downgrade or even after downgrading it still doesn't read 4K Disc.

I found the LG specs online, so it's 2A on 12V.

Is there a significant price difference between the two drives on your local market?

LG WH16NS60 is hard to find and costs around $150
I can find ASUS BW-16D1HT on many local pc shops for $110 but problem is I am not sure if downgrading trick will work on it.
