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 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 purchased my first APPLE COMPUTER since the MAC PLUS. PLUS a NEW USB SUPER??DRIVE.
    DRIVE WORKED WELL for ripping 15 cd's to iTu I purchased my first APPLE COMPUTER since the MAC PLUS. PLUS a NEW USB SUPER??DRIVE.
    DRIVE WORKED WELL for ripping 15 cd's to iTunes.
    Then the PROBLEMS STARTED.
    Now if I put in a disk it spins, clunks and clunks then spits the disk back out.
    NOW I UNDERSTAND why APPLE PUSHES the EXTENDED WARRANTY.
    I have spent more than 6 hours on line with Apple Technical support. (They have been very professional, patient, and polite)
    BUT obviously they don't read these reviews. (This is a bad product and Apple should be embarrassed to put their name on it.)
    NOW I know why THEY REMOVED IT from the MAC MINI.
    I'm taking it back to the Apple store tomorrow.
    SHOULD HAVE STUCK WITH a WINDOWS PRODUCT; At least in my experience they work past the warranty period.

    didn't I bought my iMac in December 2014 and shortly thereafter bought the USB SuperDrive. I have been busy doing other things so
    didn't try to use it until today. I plugged it in to the port on the back of my iMac then put in a photo cd. It accepted it, made a few noises for a few second and then automatically ejected it. So I tried a dvd and it also ejected right away.

    It is a pretty simple program and there isn't much that I could do to mess it up. It is messing up all by itself.

I have hundreds of music CDs to upload into iTunes. It works flawlessly and I highly recommend it. Disregard the folks who don't know how to eject it...that's a user problem, not a hardware problem. I like the fact that there is no drawer to slide out and in for loading my CDs. I realize that hardware can sometimes have a bug; I'm sure the Apple store would fix the problem if the user were to return it. They've been most helpful to my friends, one of whom had an issue with her iPad. I could not believe how helpful and generous they were to her. I will update my review if anything changes; however, I have educated myself before using my hardware to ensure proper use of it.

    I love the SuperDrive. It is worth every dime I spent on it. I love all my Apple products (2 iPads, 1 iPhone 5, 2 iPods, my MacPro 13.) High quality and outstanding performance. You won't go wrong with Apple. It may be expensive at the outset, but in the long run, it will last much longer than its competitors products.
