I have a bluray drive on a linux box that I have shared across the network via SAMBA. I can access this easily from my Macbook Pro but there is a program I have that won't access it because it will only open optical disks. Is there a way of mounting this folder in OSX so the drive appears as an optical drive to this program? (The program in question is makemkv)

You might be able to with the mount command. The file system could be an optical type, but the URL or location would be your smb:// string.
