Does linux support blu-ray drives?


I am planning to buy a blu-ray drive to use in linux, I want to be certain if linux can record to blu-ray discs.

I know linux can't play blu-ray movies, my main purpose is to use blu-ray to backup data?

I be much obliged for any feedback. Thanks

That info is a little outdated. K3b supports burning Blu-ray data discs, and you can watch or rip Blu-ray videos with makemkv.

@ EDDY1 and macemoneta

Hey, thanks for the replies.

@ macemoneta

Not interested in ripping blu-ray discs now, but I'll keep in mind the name of this program.

I meant to label as outdated, but question was support for Blu-ray.
I myself have the LG BH10LS30 and it's recognized it came with a 25Gig disk just haven't tried burning or backing anything up other than cd's.
Also I've been meaning to atleast go rent a movie to see if it has all modules loaded.

Thanks for this. I need to upgrade my system and get the new K3b. Currently I can only use my Blu-ray drive as if it were DVD drive.

growisofs handles bluray, which is the backend to the burning apps like k3b, tkdvd etc.
