Hi,

I just bought a New MacBook recently, and I couldn’t wait to play my recently favorite movie Big Hero 6 with it, I got its Blu-ray disc from a friend. Well... here comes the problem, since I don’t have a Blu-ray drive, I can’t play a blu-ray disc via my new MacBook.

I’ve looked up on the Internet, but I still am struggled... I need a light and portable one, and it’s even better if it can burn blu-ray discs, any recommendation of this blu-ray drive/burner would be appreciated.

Thanks guys

Btw, you joined over two years ago but first posted a month ago, only to resurrect a zombie thread to link to that very piece of software and explain some about Blu-Ray on Mac, and now you're telling us that you don't even have a player?

Tall story.

I just wanna know which external drive is better for me to play Blu-ray on computer. I know Blu-ray disc is high quality so borrowed one from friends. I don't know what are you talking about.
By the way, thanks for @Mike Wuerthele
