Any suggestions for a Blu Ray drive? I have a MacPro tower. Want to archive footage aquired on P2.

I have an OWC external with FW800. Works great.

I put one of these in a client system. Mounts easily in the lower optical bay of the Mac Pro tower. The tower has the mounting screws in the frame already. Cables are ready to go as well. About the only thing you will have to do is remove the cover plate from the drive before you install it.

OK. Went with the Vance plan. I have an older Mac Pro which has an IDE superdrive. This means that there's a little more to installation. There is a SATA connector on the mother board under the fan housing. Not too much trouble to remove, however apple did a good job of hiding a screw under a lip on the fan housing by the heat sink for the processor. Not mentioned in the directions I downloaded. There's also a plastic cover plate on the front of the drawer that has to be removed by sliding it up. This plate hits the nifty opening on the front of the computer. All in all a fairly easy project.
