    are you aware that Blu-Rays do not play natively within any Mac OS?

    I don't believe any available Bluray drive will fit in the MBP.

    From what I read when I was helping someone out with their blu ray drive in a new windows desktop, Windows 7 doesn't have native support for blu ray either, in the sense that it won't play in Windows Media Player.

    That being said I doubt there is a blu ray drive that will fit. I don't know of anyone that goes out and puts a new drive into a MacBook Pro. Could have to do with custom slimmed drives in Apple's notebooks.

    You need ArcSoft TotalMedia or PowerDVD's product. It plays perfectly in Windows Media Player then.
