Blu ray is slower than HDD. I'm not sure what you want to do. Are you desperately short of hard drive space and looking to install COD on a directory on your BD, then play from that directory? It sounds awfully slow, and chancy. | Report abuse jonboy79 May 3, 2012 8:51:46 PM Hi cheers for the quick reply, just wiki the transfer rates so king have answered my question, but also trying to justify getting a blu ray instead of a dvd drive.
