[QUOTE=UTR;2730470]I am not familiar with Macs but can a BD drive be swapped into them like a PC or are they proprietary?[/QUOTE]
Any standard BD drive is supported & can be added in/upgraded by the user. No special drivers are otherwise required; all modern versions of OS X that can handle CD or DVD drives not originally provided by Apple should be able to handle a BD drive. (So that means versions of the OS from the past 5 years or so will be fine).
However, Apple’s stock software doesn’t have any real support for it. Third party burning and playback software, however, does exist.
No special software would be needed to just read a data disc.
