Installing Pioneer-bdr205 on a Mac Pro
on Apr 5, 2010 at 5:19:14 pm

Hi,

Can't find the answer to this question anywhere.

There seem to be two possible ways of hooking up this Blu-Ray burner if installed internally.

1. Getting a Serial ATA to IDE converter.
2. SATA cable hooked directly into the motherboard and a SATA-IDE power converter.

Has anyone done this (or similar) installation?
Thanks!

Alec how old is your Mac Pro? Does it not have a SATA interface for the optical drives?

I have the Mac Pro (2008) and OS X 10.5.8 and I did the directly SATA conection and power ide converter, but the OS X identify the Blu Ray drive (BDR-205) like a DVR-112D and it isn't read a Blu Ray disc.
What I have to do?
Thanks!!!

" and it isn't read a Blu Ray disc."

in truth, the disck as recognize, the real problem is playback the disc. I've been searching on the web and I noticed that it cant happen on Mac OS X. Do you know some trick to playback Blu Ray on Mac?

thanks!!!!
