Blu-ray Burner for Mac Systems

Blu-ray Burner for Mac If you’ve been waiting for a Blu-ray burner to add to your Mac toolset, MCE has finally brought that wait to a close with their new 6x Blu-ray Recordable Drive for Mac Pro and Power Mac systems. Still no love if you’re using a MacBook, but it’s a good start. Of course, simply having a burner only gets you part of the way, if you really want a useful Blu-ray burning experience with your Mac, you also need a copy of Toast Titanium. MCE offers a Blu-ray burning plug-in for Toast that ties the whole thing together. In theory this also adds Blu-ray and HD-DVD playback to your Mac, although I’m not aware of any software that plays either format on a Mac for now. The standalone drive currently goes for $499, or $599 if you want a copy of Toast with it. There’s also an external drive for $749, but you could likely make your own using the internal drive and a DIY external drive case (which would make the drive function with your MacBook).
