I am fairly new to Blu-Ray technology and understanding.  Basically I am seeking blu-ray compatibility standards and system requirements information before purchasing.

I own a Mac Book Pro originally released in Feb 2008 (last titanium just before the 1st aluminum Mac book pros). It has the Intel "Penrion core 2 duo processor running at 2.5 Ghz. I am running under Snow Leopard 10.6.7, plus I have Win 7 Pro running under bootcamp. I am planning on purchasing an External Blu-Ray burner (possibly a LG or HP brand).  I have attached 2 examples of LG brand blu-ray burners to this post (see attachments).

Originally the tech spec requirements mention only Win PC compatibility and PC software which does not surprise or alarm me because I have Win 7 as a dual boot under bootcamp. Optional question - Do you think this scenario will work even though it is not a dedicated WinPC with Win 7?

My main question is; can I still functionally burn back up data discs (if not able to play a rented blu-ray movie) on the Mac side of things using Toast? Note - I am not running Toast 10 or 11, but I am registered as a version 8 user which was the 1st Toast version to support Blu-Ray. I will possibly upgrade, but still want to know if Toast 8 can still function for basic data burning capabilities with any Blu-Ray burner sold on the market today?

Thanks,

higherthani
