Product Information

The sleek, compact USB SuperDrive.
  • Everything you need in an optical drive.

    Whether you’re at the office or on the road, you can play and burn both CDs and DVDs with the Apple USB SuperDrive. It’s perfect when you want to watch a DVD, install software, create backup discs and more.

    Take it anywhere.

    Only slightly bigger than a CD case, the Apple USB SuperDrive slips easily into your travel bag when you hit the road, and takes up little space on your desk or tray table when you’re working.

    The essence of simplicity.

    You’ll never have to worry about lost cables with the Apple USB SuperDrive. It connects to your MacBook Pro with Retina display, MacBook Air, iMac or Mac mini with a single USB cable that’s built into the SuperDrive. There’s no separate power adaptor, and it works whether your Mac is plugged in or running on battery power.

    For some reason, the burning speed is much faster on this SuperDrive than other standalone DVD drives you find on Amazon. I tried For some reason, the burning speed is much faster on this SuperDrive than other standalone DVD drives you find on Amazon. I tried the Amazon Basic DVD drive, but the speed is so slow that I had to return it. The Apple USB SuperDrive doesn't have this problem, though.

Seriously. The retina display has a resolution of 2880 x 1800. I think it's time for 1080p viewability.

Although it s I recently bought this to install software on my new MacBook Pro with retina display and it does its job quite well. Although it still irks me that such a device is even necessary in this day and age. Sure improved portability is a nice feature but taking away the optical disk drive to do so seems silly. Overall no complaints, however.

I found after only several uses it had serious mechanical issues accepting discs. I only used the superdrive several times and now won't work. I used it twice for software installation, and once to a burn disc. I had trouble inserting the disc to be burned, and then had terrible trouble inserting any more discs. Seems like it has serious mechanical issues or just wouldn't read discs. The last attempt left the blank disc that I tried to burn scratched and unusable. Tried inserting more discs and it just kept scratching them! I could understand two years or so down the road this happening, but not straight out of the box. Now I have to figure out how to either return it, or get it fixed. Pain!!!

I used to store my images on DVDs so that I could free-up space on my iMac hard drive. However, after one OS upgrade (to Leopard?), 12 of my DVDs started to get read errors. I tried using several iMacs and Windoze machines to copy the data from these disks but it appeared that the DVDs had died of cosmic ray bombardment or something.

    I tried again today using my new Apple USB SuperDrive and iMac (running Yosemite) and I can now read all of these DVDs without errors.

It would sometimes not eject CDs and would skip when playing and ripping CDs and DVDs. Somthing with an Apple brand on it should not be so unreliable.
