Forum,

Does any one know of an internal Blu-Ray burner which is compatible with Mac Pro?

LiteOn tell me their products are not cmpatable.

Thanks,

Michael.

    This will require some sifting on your behalf.

    I'm not familiar with any of these specific drives. OWC tech support may be of better help.

    Too, I'd imagine shipping to England is going to jack the "total price" right up.

    Hi Michael,
    taking from some of Kevin's suggestions look up on amazon.co.uk to see if you can find a good deal for an LG for Mac?

    Do you think I should retain the original DvD writer in addition to the Blu-Ray burner?


    Yes, you may want to be able to burn standard DVDs too.

    I think all blu ray burners will burn just about any kind of round disk: CD, DVD +/-, re-writable media ad so on.

    The specs on the machines give you an idea of what they can burn. I know my LG internal BR burner does all flavors of cd, dvd, and BR disk including re-writable disks.

    So there is a blu laser and a red laser in these machines afaik.

    Please let us know if it works! I am looking for a BD burner in the near future.
