    Is it possible that Apple will update their External DVD player so that it will play Blu Rays?

    Patience! Give Apple a chance; it's only been eight years since the "committed to Blu-ray" press release...

    :rolleyes:

    There's a greater chance of it being updated to play 8-track tapes

    Well, thanks for your replies, folks. That kinda sucks. I don't see why not but I guess I'll be looking at the Samsung DVD/Blu Ray externals

    If I can draw any conclusions from Apple's behaviour so far, I'd say they are about to steer away from disk-based media altogether.
    I think the attitude hasn't changed since 2008:
    Steve Jobs suggests Blu-ray isn't coming to Macs any time soon
    PS To be honest, in my opinion BD will never take off so widely as DVD did, because "Streaming/downloading of HD killed the Blu Ray star".
