Compatible with all recent Macs?

Is this compatible with all recent Macs, or is it like earlier USB SuperDrives in that it is modded to only work with Macs that don't have an optical drive (MacBook Air, Mac mini Server, and now, the new MacBook Pro with Retina Display)?

  • It only works with devices that don't have a SuperDrive.
    Don't misunderstand, it's not "modded" to only work with those devices, those devices are the only ones with drivers capable of communicating with it. Devices with built in SuperDrives have no need for those drivers, so they aren't included.
