Hi DS, Thx for the reply. I had sent a follow up yesterday, but it seems it did not go through. This is what I had feared regarding the Mac Mini's optical drive. Is there any other device which I can connect to the Mini in order for it to read HD DVDs and utilize MakeMKV on the Mini to rip the disc?
Answering just on the question of reading an HD DVD disk on a Mac, to the best of my knowledge there are no drives available from any source that can mount an HD DVD disk on a Mac.
You would need to find an external drive that allows reading HD DVD's.
This may be hard to do since HD DVD lost the format war to BLU-Ray.
I have heard that the Xbox HD DVD add on (no longer produced or sold) works with Macs-at least it is recognized. I do not believe it will playback the HD DVD, but may allow read access to it.
