Replace IDE optical with SATA Bluray for data burning
I have an internal SATA Pioneer BDR drive. I have a Power Mac G5 2.0GHz dual with one internal HD.
I would like to dedicate the G5 for BDR data burning.
How can I go about doing this? From what I have read Toast 8 will run on PPC and allow for bluray disc burning. What other bits of hard ware do I need?
Just another note (kind of moot but for posterity I suppose)
The manual also volunteers the following on page 44:
Overview of Making a Data Disc
This section describes the basic process of making any data disc with Toast.
To make a data disc:
1 At the left side of the Toast window, click on Data.
2 Choose the disc format. For example, choose Mac Only.
3 Choose any optional settings.
4 Add files and folders to the disc by dragging and dropping them into the Content Area from your hard disk or the Media Browser, or by clicking the Add button at the bottom of the Media Browser.
5 Optional: Rearrange, rename and remove items from the Content
Area. See Working With Data Content on page49.
6 Insert a blank, recordable CD, DVD, HD DVD, or Blu-ray disc.
7 Click the red Record button, choose a recorder from the list, and configure recording options, such as “Number of Copies.”
8 Click Record to continue.
Toast displays a progress bar and status information as it records your disc.
There is an interesting discussion that I am in the middle of reading, http://macintoshgarden.org/forum/blu-ray...
Is this a good question?
