    So my issue is that now that I have taken the optical drive out of my 2011 15" MacBook Pro, and replaced it with a SSD. I need an external optical drive. I was thinking about getting an external Bluray Optical drive and was wondering if the only issue with Mac and Blu-Ray are the fact that Apple doesn't use Blu-Ray, or is it not compatible at all(issue with drivers).

    ie. will I be able to connect it and read Blu-rays in Mac OS X.
    I also have bootcamp, it should for sure work under windows 7 right?

    something like this:
    thanks for the help

    id look around on macsales...theyve got a few options on there, and those should all be very compatible with mac.

    theyve got great customer service if you need to call too.

    On the fence
    You can play Blu-Ray in Windows, however, you cannot play them natively on OS X
