    LaCie today introduced the first external Blu-ray burning solution for Mac OS and Windows called the LaCie d2 Blu-ray Drive. LaCie's d2 Blu-ray Drive is addressed to proffessionals or video editors who need to distribute HD content while retaining quality of picture and sound. The drive does not support playback of protected BD-ROM movies. LaCie d2 Blu-ray Drives come with full-featured Roxio software including Roxio Easy Media Creator 8 for Windows, and Toast 7 Titanium for Mac - both with new support for Blu-ray. The drive also comes bundled with a 50GB BD disc from Panasonic. LaCie d2 Blu-ray Drives are available immediately online and widely available via LaCie's specialized dealer network later this month at the suggested retail price of $1149. In addition to Roxio burning software, drives ship with CinePlayer 3.4 for HD playback on Windows.
