    Hi people,

    Running up & down my cave and thinking about for buying the ASUS BW-12D1S-U blue ray with USB 3 with extra powersupply...
    http://www.asus.com/Optical_Storage/External_Slim_Bluray_Drive/BW12D1SU/

    But will it work?
    I hear sometimes that Mac not support Blue Ray and that it not will work’s on Mac’s to view or burn?

    Any experience is welcome or telling what you use for the moment...

    I thank you all,
    Trogledyte.

    Its the software and drivers that give Mac compatibility, not the drive itself. Toast will, I think, see most drives, but the bundled version might need to be upgraded to get all of the features that you need. Your best bet, I think, is to buy a drive that includes Mac support, and have the manufacturer (not a salesman) insure that it will meet your needs.
