    So I've done some homework and chatted with the guys at OWC, but wanted to float this to see if anyone had any further experience/advice. I am looking for a burner for my Mac Mini. I would mainly be using it for ripping CDs I've purchased (yeah I'm old school like that) and importing to iTunes. But this set up also doesn't have a DVD or Blu Ray player connected to it, so I thought two birds/one stone. Since blu ray isn't natively supported, it seems I would need a drive like this one:

    OWC OWCMRF8UEBDW12 Mercury Pro 12X Blu-Ray... in stock at OWC

    Plus software like this:

    The First and Best Mac Blu-ray Player Software, movie/DVD/video player

    If I do this, I should be able to do everything I want to do including watching blu ray movies, correct?

    Thanks in advance. Also if anyone has better suggestions for drives or software, feel free to chime in.

    Yes. Certainly not inexpensive since the software alone is $59.95 if memory serves me correctly. However, our members who have gone that route seem to be satisfied with it.
