    With media prices at 5 $ and burners at 6x it´s about time we can get an external BR burner for Mac both for data and for burning DVDs. Any news about it? Any news about DVD Studio Authoring BR?
    Thanks

    MacBook Pro 17, 4GB Ram, 512 MB Graphics, LaCie Sata Drives

    I suspect you already know some of this, but there are already Blu-Ray burners that you can hook up to your Mac to burn data, but you can't use them for authoring Blu-Ray movies. Quite simply, this is because you can't use them for viewing Blu-Ray movies either. OSX is not currently equipped to decode Blu-Ray. I don't think there's any chance of DVD Studio Pro getting Blu-Ray support before OSX does.
