Questions about this item:

Porter B  Is the BW-12D1S-U compatible with iMac computers? Porter Baldwin
MICHAEL G  Don't know if compatible with all iMac systems. The software that came with this ASUS drive is very critical of system specs. My Toshiba Laptop w/2ghz dual core proc, 4gb mem, 200gb HD, & Windows 7 (64 bit) was good enough to read/write to Blu-Ray discs but NOT GOOD ENOUGH to play Blu-Ray movies.
Murali R  Can we use it with Roxio Toast 11 Titanium on Mac?
Andrew R  Unfortunately no, this unit does not appear to be Mac compatible.
Shopper  Is this compatible with Mac OSX?
Andrew R  Unfortunately no, this unit is not Mac compatible.
