    Can you play 3D Blu rays on a Mac?
    Hi,

    Ive just bought a 3D external drive for my mac and just wondering if the mac has the ability to play 3D? Does anyone know of any software? Any help would be awesome!
    Thanks

    Installing Windows along with either PowerDVD or TotalMedia Theater would do the trick.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    Did you use BootCamp to install Windows?
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    I've not tried either one of those in a virtual machine.

    Doesn't your display need to be 3D capable? I don't believe any of the Macs have 3D support - unless of course, you're using an external, 3rd party display...
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
