    Can Parallels please make it so that if you are running Parallels Desktop with Windows on your Mac and have an internal or external Blu-ray drive capable of Blu-ray movie playback, you can watch a Blu-ray movie on the PC side?

    MCE Technologies makes an internal Blu-ray drive found here: http://www.mcetech.com/blu-ray/

    for the Mac Pro which works only with Boot Camp running Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7 and plays back Blu-ray movies. This drive is recognised inside Mac OSX and allows you to burn data Blu-ray disks, but unfortunately Mac OSX does not allow Blu-ray movie playback. I would like to be able to have this internal drive and while running Windows 7 with Parallels Desktop on my Mac, be able to watch a Blu-ray movie.

    Please work along with MCE to get this to happen. I am really tired of being unable to watch Blu-ray movies on my Mac.

    I have found LaCie Blu-ray player/burners which should work, but again OSX does not support playback. I fid find an article on MacWorld:
    http://www.macworld.com/article/160977/2011/07/blu_ray_movie_playback_comes_to_the_mac.html

    about the Macgo Mac Blu-ray Player, but it has major playback problems.

    Thank you!
    Jeff
