The first Blu-ray DVD Drive released in Australia is Sony's BWU-100A Blu-ray Drive. The Drive can read and write both 50GB and 25GB BD-R (write once) and BD-RE (rewritable) discs, as well as 4.7 GB DVD+R/+RW/-R/-RW/-RAM, 8.5GB DVD+R/-R Dual Layer, and CD-R/-RW discs. The first generation drive will not be able to playback Blu-ray movies, which is not so important as there are no Blu-ray movies available in Australia yet. However, you will be able to write HD video to Blu-ray media and play it back in the drive.
