Peripheral Pick: Pioneer BDR-XD05B USB 3 Blu-Ray drive
Andy Ihnatko's pick of the week on MacBreak Weekly 566 is the Pioneer BDR-XD05B USB 3 Blu-Ray drive. This will read and write CDs, DVDs, and Blu-rays at USB 3 speed. Most importantly, it works with all of the third party tools that Andy uses for converting CDs and movie discs into files on his server.
Jason Snell has a great guide at sixcolors.com on how to rip DVDs and Blu-rays.
