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 movie, 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 adapter, 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 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?) 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.

Hasn't burned discs properly for years compared to the four other Apple computers I've owned with built in drives. It's recently decided that it can't find disc burning software at all.

    I use this with my 2011 Air and have a fairly new 2014 Pro with built in drive to hold me for now, but worry about compact disc support going forward.

    I feel Apple has ignored possible quality control issues with external CD support in their move to all things iCloud, but until CDs are extinct I expect the same attention to detail that I experience in all my other Apple products.

    A one star review from an exclusive Apple user because I know they can do better.
