16X 5.25" Internal Blu-ray/DVD/CD Writer
Complete Kit for 2006-2012 Mac Pro models
Includes Toast 17 Titanium + HD Plugin

Mac / PC / DVD Multi Recorder / Rewritable
Read and write Blu-ray discs at 16x with the WH16NS40 that allows you to record up to 128GB of files, photos, or documents onto a quad-layer BD-R disc. SATA interface technology allows for easier integration and faster performance while M-DISC™ provides superior reliability in data storage that is perfect for archiving important data.
Mac Pro Kit
No mater which Mac Pro you own, this kit comes with all the cabling and full-color instructions you need to add a second optical drive to your workstation.
Can't Find an IDE/ATA Drive? No Problem.
Just because IDE/ATA optical drives are no longer made doesn't mean you shouldn't be able to upgrade your 2006-2008 Mac Pro model. These Mac Pro models actually have two factory open SATA ports that go unused. So we provide all the cabling and instructions in this kit that you need to utilize one for your optical drive upgrade.
Roxio Toast 17 Titanium + HD Plugin Included
Enjoy your digital media without limits-at home, on mobile and online-with Roxio Toast 17. With support for popular social media platforms and devices, renowned capture, copy, convert and share capabilities, enhanced HD burning options and new Live Screen Capture, Roxio Toast is the ideal companion to iLife and the one-stop digital media toolkit for Mac.
Reads and Writes Blu-ray discs
Although commercial Blu-ray movie playback not supported in OS X, Blu-ray discs do mount on the desktop and can be backed up to the computer or played via third party software options.
M-DISC - Write Once and Read Forever
Compared to other recordable DVDs on the market today, M-DISC offers superior reliability in data storage that provides the permanent optical data storage solution. Once written, the M-DISC can be read or played on any quality DVD drive that supports the common DVD+R/RW format. M-DISC Media sold separately.

Rating: 5/5 Great deal! October 31, 2018 I was shopping for Toast 17 and found this package deal at Macsales for what Amazon is charging for the software only. The drive was a snap to replace in my Mac Pro 2012 and I was able to burn a Blu Ray image quickly and easily that I created with Adobe Encore.
