“How come a blu-ray movie won’t play in my iMac? i got BD drive from amazon and hope something isn’t wrong with my optical drive, or did something i was missed to make blu-ray working on iMac?”

Since Apple does not support Blu-ray playback, even if you have an external Blu-ray drive, iMac can not play back Blu-ray movies from the original source discs. Blu-ray discs are encoded with programming beyond that of a normal DVD, so you must have proper software on your iMac that decodes it properly for the movie to play and a third-party software that allows an external Blu-ray player to communicate with your iMac. With UFUSoft Mac Blu-ray player, you can play Blu-ray movies on iMac easily.
