    Anyone have a BD Burner that they use on their Mac Books or Mac Book Pro? I am interested in getting one to backup my images, I am a photographer and shoot in the RAW format. I also just purchased a new camera, where the uncompressed images are anywhere from 20-30MB a photo. So projects tend to be quite large.

    Any help with this would be greatly appreciated!

    If its in your budget, why not pick up one of the HP media smart servers to store and backup all your important work. When they release the new version i am going to pick one up to store all my media in one location.

    I have not done much research, what exactly is the HP Media Smart Server?

    Thank you! Interesting.

    The advantage to having a burner would be is I can store the disks at another location.

    or you can access your files remotely via the software :D If you have the budget, get both!

    What are you? an HP sales rep?

    DVDs are still way cheaper per gigabyte. I've been keeping my eye on these things for making HD video discs, but the cost just seems too high right now.

    Actually, I only looked briefly but the cost didn't seem too unreasonable for the burner and discs. I was just trying to find out if they work with a Mac, lol

    i guess you would insinuate that because i didn't recommend the crapple TV. If your looking to store your media somewhere, physical media is one way, and another is a NAS. Pretty simple suggestion if it fit in his work place.
