    Anyone know if a Blu-Ray drive from a DELL XPS M1530 (Slot Loading Drive) will work on the new MacBook. The model number is (Panasonic) Matshita BD-RE UJ-225S. Really I just need to know where I would be able to find drivers for this drive to run on Mac OS X if it needs it. I am guessing the SuperDrive drivers are avaiable since you can use it in bootcamp.


    Thanks

    1. I don't think it will even fit.
    2. Toast is about the only thing that will give you Blu-ray data read/write support.

    I already have Toast so thats not a big deal. Why would it not fit? I thought all drives were the same size.

    There are 12mm and 9.5mm drives. Current Blu-ray drives only fit in the 17" MacBook Pro.
