Hi,

I just bought a New MacBook recently, and I couldnít 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 donít have a Blu-ray drive, I canít play a blu-ray disc via my new MacBook.

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

By the way, I've got a Blu-ray player software trial version from Macgo so this is what I can use for test.

Thanks guys.

This si what I use for an internal. I just bought my second one. Works fine for me, but I don't use it to play movies and don't know which software you would need to do so.
You can buy this model in an external version too.

LOL.. I even went to Amazon and copied the link but forgot to post it. Here:

This is also one of the same models listed at OWC.
OWC has some externals but they are either slow or expensive. You could buy the LG at Amazon and add an enclosure for bout $25.00

The first LG I bought worked great for 6 years... but then the tray started having a mind of its own and I gave up.
