Just a comment... all flavors of Premiere do not work well with direct access to USB devices due to the slow usb speed and timing issues
You MAY be able to create your disc image/folder on your hard drive and then use the FREE http://www.imgburn.com/ to write the disc

One problem with BD and PrE is that PrE cannot Burn to Folder for BD. Now, some here recommend Virtual Drive (I think that is the correct name) for doing the Burn to Folder. I have not tried it, so cannot comment on how effective it is.
With Adobe Encore, I occasionally use a USB DVD burner, and it has not complained. That however is NOT BD, so there could be issues.
Though I had major issues with USB external HHD's and editing, my two USB external burners have not failed yet, for either DVD-Video, or DVD-Data.
Do not know this particular burner, but one of my many internal DVD multi-drives is an LG, and it has been 100% over about 5 years, and many hundred (if not thousands) of DVD-Videos.
Thanks guys. You have made my mind up for me, I will buy a SATA Blu Ray drive such as the Pioneer BDR-202.
Just off the top of my head, I think that you will remove some potential problems that way. Pioneer is highly respected too, and used to rate at the very top of the list. Have not seen anything of that type lately, and there are some "new players" in the game. Still, if Pioneer WAS the best for a long time, I would feel that they are still very, very good.
PS - I'm going be shopping for a BD burner for my new workstation (still in the planning stages), so if you have great luck, please report to this thread. Others WILL be watching.
