  • Overview

    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.

      Perfect DVD drive for Macbook Air Users

      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, bu 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.

      Good idea, but limited.

      This is a good idea when it comes to improving the design of the MacBooks, but for the hassle and the cost, you'd think it could be blu-ray capable. 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.

      This SuperDrive works great!

The f I received shipment of my driver a week ago. After a simple plug and play I was ready to go. First off I had quite a backlog of CDs to transfer to iTunes. The first minor glitch was the method of ejection, which is not on the drive. A quick search of online manuals solved that quandary. A simple tap on the f12 key releases the CD smoothly and silently. I've already, in three days, imported over 75 discs without a single hang up. Mind you, these discs were in every quality grade imaginable. The small size of the drive is appreciated and being able to burn as well as import makes its versatility a real plus. I know that I could have bought a less expensive drive but I trust the Apple brand and I love the way it looks with my Mac mini in their brushed steel cases. Definitely a five star purchase.

      Piece of Scat!

      I probably should have known better than to buy this product about a year ago, after reading the substantial number of really bad reviews. But, as a long time I probably should have known better than to buy this product about a year ago, after reading the substantial number of really bad reviews. But, as a long time fan of Apple products, I convinced myself that mine would not be a lemon. For about 50 uses (mostly importing music CDs into my iTunes library), it worked flawlessly, and I thought those reviews were incorrect. Now, every time I import a CD the music skips forward in high speed zzzzts. So, I'm in the market for another drive and will not be buying another version of this from Apple. Sad that after all the bad reviews there is no (apparent?) response from the company. If anyone knows of a reliable drive, from another company, please post here.

      OK, but not the best

      I don't use the SuperDrive on my 2013 iMac much, but recently I tried to import a CD. The import failed on the SuperDrive ("not available" error message). I i I don't use the SuperDrive on my 2013 iMac much, but recently I tried to import a CD. The import failed on the SuperDrive ("not available" error message). I imported the CD with no problem on my MacBook Pro, and burned a copy of the CD on the MacBook. I was able to import the copy with the SuperDrive on my iMac. Sometimes when I've imported other (new) CDs, the SuperDrive makes a lot of noise and takes a very long time. If it croaks I will not replace it with another SuperDrive.
