    Possible to install a HD DVD Drive or Blu Ray?
    Seeing as you can buy them now, would it be possible to put a HD DVD Drive or a Blu Ray drive in a Mac?

    We are thinking of using them in the studio, on one of the Mac Pros.

    I would think so, toast 8 now supports blu-ray.

    I'm pretty sure DVD studio pro supports HD DVD. But I don't think OSX supports either yet as far as burning in finder.
    Overall I think support is kind of bad, but will probably be much better and clear in 10.5.

    Cool
    DVD Studio pro does have an option for red/blue laser.
