Apple USB SuperDrive


The Apple USB SuperDrive can significantly contribute to the performance of Mac computers, particularly those models not equipped with optical drives. The SuperDrive can help users create CD- and DVD-based copies of data saved on their non-optical drive Macs. This is the perfect accessory for the iMac, MacBook Air, and the MacBook Pro with Retina display.

Like all Apple accessories, the USB SuperDrive is designed for speed. This external CD/DVD drive can deliver 24x and 8x read/write speeds for CDs and DVDs, respectively. At these speeds, you can create more optical copies of your data in less time. You can burn videos to DVDs and watch them via your home entertainment system, install software to your 15.4 MacBook Pro with Retina display, or even create multiple backup copies of your files.

The SuperDrive is capable of supporting a wide variety of media, too, including rewritable CDs and DVDs, making it more functional for Mac users. For added convenience, the USB SuperDrive is equipped with an integrated USB 2.0 cable that makes the drives easier to connect to non-optical drive Macs. This external USB drive works even when your MacBook is running on battery power.

One of the best features of the Apple USB SuperDrive is its extremely portable size. This device is just slightly bigger than a CD case and weighs less than a pound, so you can easily take it with you wherever you go. It even perfectly fits into most laptop bags and travel bags.

Hi, will a new Apple USB SuperDrive work if it is connected to an older Mac Mini model (1.5 GHz Power PC G4)?

Asked by Ernest Albanese from RI | Oct 13, 2012

Flag as Inappropriate

Best Answer

This will only work with Mac computers which do not have any built-in DVD drives. You may consider an external drive (USB or FireWire connected DVD drive).

USB SuperDrive - Still missing BD & USB3, 2012-07-10
By rabell 
Two missing items with this drive especially in light of it's price.
1. USB 3.0
2. Blue ray Disk reading

DVDs are becoming standard for data, but BD is pretty common for movies.

Also, in light of the new USB 3 ports on the new MacBooks, i would have expect this to be USB 3, at least as an option.

Other than these issue, the drive works ok. I still have not had a chance to try writing data or audio, but otherwise, the bandwidth seems ok and it reads most of the disks I have tried. There are several DVDs that it would not read, but I'm not sure what the reason is. Perhaps something wrong with those disks.

Retired, 2012-08-26
By Russel Yeaman 
I plugged it in to my Mini-Mac and it worked without needing to do anything else. It is just what it is said to be and yes I would recommend it to anyone needing a DVD-CD drive for their Mac.

another win, 2012-08-30
By Dorian 
You just can't beat Apple products for aesthetics! Sure you can get a cheaper drive that functions just as good, but why? Unless you simply can't afford it, there is no reason not to get this drive. Functions great and looks even better.

Quality product!, 2012-10-28
By Michael 
This is a wonderful little superdrive to complement your computer. I bought it for my MacBook Air, which has no CD drive in it. It is nice to be able to watch movies now, import music to my computer, burn CDs or DVDs, etc. Very quality product. Nice and compact (which makes traveling with it easy) and plugs right in to your USB port. Reasonably priced. Highly recommend this drive to anyone looking for one for their computers!

CD on the Side, 2012-11-28
By JCunningham 
As optical discs become less necessary, this device is a good solution for having one on-hand as the need arises. Paired with and powered by my MacMini, I have a solution that sits by without getting in the way and is available to my other Macs.

It’s an Apple--works right out of the box, 2013-01-04
By Plug and play! 
Typical Apple product. No crazy, confusing set-up. No software issues. Just plug it in and it works. Perfectly. Love that this and the Time Capsule are automatically covered by my AppleCare Protection Plan, just in case. I found that you do have to make sure the Apple advisor knows that, though. When I tried to register this under AppleCare, the advisor didn’t realize it was covered. He suggested asking an uninformed advisor to investigate the AppleCare agreement, should there ever be any pushback on whether these accessories are covered
