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).

This unit does NOT solve the problem of playing DVD's that won't play on the interior iMac player.For this you need a "SLIM PORTABLE DVD WRITER"

Short cord but works fine

2015-03-15
By Mary B. 
Just plugged my new Apple SuperDrive into my new iMac running Yosemite. After confirming that I am in Region ! for DVDs, it started right up and played both a DVD that I had created and a commercial CD.

My only criticism would be that the USB connector cable is extremely short - only 12 inches long, so you need to have space on your physical desk top very close to your computer. I have my drive sitting on the "foot" that supports my iMac. (I suppose you could plug it into a hub but I don't know how that would affect the transfer speed.)

I was disappointed that I couldn't have a built-in DVD drive in my new iMac but this external one will do the job and, as it is an Apple product, I expect to it run well for years.

It's a good product

2015-02-14
By Cecil Brooks 
At first I didn't think it worked because the insignia is on the bottom so I thought the bottom was the top, therefore I was putting the CD's in upside down. When I called support and they explained the problem it worked fine, LOl. Thought I would explain that incase someone else might make the same mistake.

Great product!!!

Happy with the Superdrive

2014-08-22
By Ted isbell 
Being my first Mac I wanted to buy all Mac accessories so I purchased the SuperDrive. Looks good and matches the iMac. Performance is good and in general no issues. However, I recently helped my sister purchase a new iMac too and she purchased an LG drive that is working great for only $24... a huge savings from the $79 paid for the SuperDrive. Hmmmmm....... we will see which one lasts longer.....

USB Super Drive

2014-08-14
By Bob Jeffery 
the usb super drive comes packaged up side down to the way you are to feed the disk into it. the way it is packed the black plastic part with the apple in it is the top part of the super drive which makes you think that is the way it should sit to feed the disc into it. there is no instructions telling you how this is to sit to feed the disc so it can be read by the super drive. Plus the imac I purchased had to have some settings changed to accept the super drive. now that the setting have been changed and the alum side of the super drive is on top. the discs go in properly and the imac reads them and every thing works fine. I had to call apple to get all of this straighten out for you tech people did not know this. now everything works fine I am very pleased with my new set up.

Solid built, sleek and compact. Fast. Highly recommend as an add on to a purchase of an iMac if your still one of those, like me, that likes to burn a cd with your music or make a dvd presentation. Not that expensive.
