The drive door problem- you got to close the door and hold it a several seconds for the drive to register that the door is closed.
and NO! You DON'T need to buy Macgo Blu-ray Player for $39. JUST USE VLC PLAYER 2.04 and download 2 files to get your VLC 2.0 to play encrypted blu-ray discs.
You'll need two files: keys database and AACS dynamic library.
you get these 2 files from:
and followed their instructions on the site where to place the 2 files and blu-ray will work.
Thank you to the Mac developers of the VLC project, their website:
I am now watching The Avengers on Blu-Ray on my intel Mac.
VLC Player 2.04 is opensource freeware and you can donate to the project if you like.
here's how you play blu-ray discs on vlc:
1. launch VLC
2. Click File on Menu and select open Disc
3. click open BDMV folder and select the directory in the blu-ray with the BDMV file
4. click open
5. blu-ray movie should be playing at this point.
6. press cmd f for full screen
Sorry hackers, VLC just won't cut it, you really have to spend the money.
That's it. I recommend the product. It works. I don't really understand the complaints. It works as advertised... NR.
So all I have to say is that this is an exceptional value and it is, in fact, burning as I type this.
In an aside: If you need to break up files in excess of 100GB to 23.31GB for archiving- USE RAR. Makes a nice clean envelope for the file's future concating and does it in one step.
So I just hooked it up to a 9 year old Mac twin G5 tower running OS X 10.4 (with toast 9 HD plugin) and held my breath- Burning and verifying without a hitch on old computer with only main USB connection in. I'm even more pleased than before.
I use it with a 5 year old Dell Latitude laptop with a 2.3Ghz processor and 2 GB of RAM. I use Windows XP Home on that computer.
One thing to be aware of -- the Blu-Ray drive requires TWO USB ports to operate. You will either need two open USB ports next to, or on top of, each other, or you will need to buy a USB extension cable to help the drive's cables reach your 2nd USB port. I only plug this Blu-Ray drive in when I need to burn a disc. So, when I am not burning anything, I disconnect it and keep it in a drawer....that way, it does not use up my available USB ports for everyday use.
So far, I have only tested this drive with BD-R discs (I use Verbatim 6x BD-R discs). It works perfectly with those discs.
Highly recommended if you need or want an external Blu-Ray writer.
There is nothing this item does not do, even the small DVD-RAM discs.
The Black Friday Price of 99.99 was a steal and the delivery fast and furious.
I was hoping not to disappoint my son , by not getting it on time as an X-mas
gift since the delivery window would have allowed 4 it.
Came it 5 days.Sturdy and needs no power adapter.Five Stars for this General
