    Does anyone know if anyone is putting out blueray readers that I could install in my powermac g5 or a reader that I can use externally?

    while apple backed the blu ray development, they haven't officially supported either format. However, i did manage to find this external blu ray drive but it will cost you over a thousand bucks, and the system requirements only list powerpc G3, G4, and G4 dual (i just assumed that it would work with G5s and intels)
    EDIT: if you are looking for more, just search external blu ray drive on google, and you will get a lot of results which say that they are mac compatible at the very bottom.
    EDIT 2: There are some internal blu ray drives on google, but i don't know if the interface would work...Sony Internal blu ray drive, but its $700-$800.
