I was wanting to watch a movie on my Sanyo 18.5′ LED HDTV and I was wondering if I could use a ASUS external optical drive SDR-08B1-U?

Is this possible? Fingers crossed!!!

    I agree with James, you cannot simply attach the optical drive to the TV.

    Your best alternative is to attach this drive to a laptop and connect the laptop via HDMI to your TV.

    You would need drivers. Can't install drivers on a tv.
