This comes up a lot because of the HD DVD option in DVDSP. It's not Blu-Ray. HD DVD is a dead format and shouldn't be used. To be clear, there is no Blu Ray authorring capability in DVDSP.
There is limited Blu-Ray capability by creating BD disks directly from either FCP or Compressor, You can also use the properly-encoded output files in Toast. How well your LG drive works with Mac's is another story.
FCP X won't give you anything better for what you're tring to do.

I don't think you can "play" blu-ray movies on a mac (I could be wrong on this). Do some googling for mac blu-ray software players and see if you find anything.
Have you tried playing a blu-ray you've burned on a blu-ray settop player?

Yes , I can burn the bluray disk with Toast and the disc is readable without problem on a settop player, I can not play the disc on my Mac. the burner is grayed out in Finder.
I tried it on a PC and then, the disc is readable with VLC. LG is certainly not compatible with Mac , although they say otherwise on their site. They have not answered my question.
