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 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.

    It's well documented that the SuperDrive won't work if connected to a hub! One hub I tested even stated that, in it's manual. And It's well documented that the SuperDrive won't work if connected to a hub! One hub I tested even stated that, in it's manual. And yet I plugged it into my 2nd monitor (27" LED) which is plugged into my iMac (so acting as a hub) - works!

    Plugged into Belkin 4 port USB3 connected to iMac - nothing.

    Plugged the drive into 27" LED; which is plugged into Belkin hub; which is plugged into iMac - Works brilliantly!!! Go figure! But in this config. the SuperDrive is getting power from the LED's USB port, not Belkin's USB port! I.e. The Apple LED is supplying power, the Belkin is suppling signal (from the iMac).

    I purchased the Apple USB SuperDrive and after just a few months it broke and the drive just kept spinning. If you want a drive th I purchased the Apple USB SuperDrive and after just a few months it broke and the drive just kept spinning. If you want a drive that actually has blu-ray capability and will last go with something else. Please don't waste your money on this.

  • Nice external drive but upside down cable issue

I don't have an issue with the length of the USB cable but I do have an issue with its orientation. It is upside down. I have to twist the cable in order to slot it into the mac book pro. Now maybe if you have an iMac then it sits nicely under the computer and the cable loops over the superdrive (like a scorpions tail) into the back of the machine and so is the correct way up, but with the macbook pro you have to twist the cable uncomfortably to get it in. Is it meant to be this way? It seems ridiculous to take issue with such a thing but it just doesn't feel right.
