Yea I was going to comment that Apple never released a Blu-ray drive for the Mac. Plenty affordable 3rd party ones that read and write now that will work with a Mac.


dave is right – Apple’s Superdrive doesn’t support Blu-Ray. There are external, USB Blu-Ray drives available but Apple’s is not one of them.


Are you certain Apple’s external Superdrive supports Blu-Ray? I think it’s CD/DVD only.
