Sony PlayStation3 usb to Mac

Anybody know if the Sony PSP 3's USB port allows it to appear on the Mac desktop? This could be an interim kludge to mount BluRay disks and, more specifically, AVCHD disks on the Mac until Apple gets around to supporting BluRay and AVCHD natively.

This would be useful for us who are burning Canon AVCHD disks as backkup of our HF100 files on the assumption that Apple will get around to supporting the format.

AVCHD discs are just DVD recordables, pop them in the mac and rip the .mts files then rename into .m2ts and convert.

There is no possible way to mount the Blu-ray drive of the PS3 unless you are in Linux and you somehow got past the PS3's Hypervisor.

Yippeeeee!

Inspite of what I had been told the AVCHD DVD's work just fine for the Canon HF100 on the Mac. Canon told me they weren't yet supported by Apple and the documentation said that just putting one into a non supported drive "could" jam it with a non-removable disk.

On Jack's suggestion I inserted a DVD-R DL and opened it in the Log and Capture window in FCP. No problemo. It acted like inserting a SDHC chip and transfered just fine.

One happy camper here...
