    Terrible product

    I recently bought the apple super drive and used it successfully just once. The next time it would not recognize my DVD and would not eject it. A repair store was able the take the drive apart to retrieve my disk but the drive only made grinding noises when I plugged it in later. I called apple and after half an hour identifying that it was indeed an Apple product, they could only direct me to yet another repair shop. Not worth the effort.

    Super Drive?

    Took back last nite. Drive took 5 minutes to read 5 photos on DVD took only 3 minutes to read 50 photos on my old 2007 iMac drive. Sad that Apple would make something this bad. Took 3 taps on eject key to get disc out. Looks nice.

    What's Up?

    I've had this SuperDrive and have been using it heavily for a long time. It has never missed a lick. It is great. I couldn't be happier with it. It's a workhorse and totally dependable. I'm not sure how to account for all the bad experiences that others have had with this model of drive, but I have had a purely positive experience using it. I can only relate my own experience, which has been purely positive.

    Ate My Dvd and Won't Return It!

    Inserted a DVD-RW disc into Superdrive. Device not recognized by Disk Utility. Can't eject since it's not recognized. Twenty minutes on phone with Apple Care, no luck after many SWAG's. Finally he tells me 'it only reads discs, can't burn them'. He didn't read the Apple website selling the device. Now a trip to the 'Genius Store' where they will rip it open and take out the disc and hopefully tell me what will work in the device.

    Don't buy unless they prove it works at the 'Genius Store'

    Excellent.

    I've had this since 2011 and it hasn't missed a beat. Still works with my brand new MacBook Pro.

    Apple SuperDrive

    I was a little leery after all the negative reviews but found the drive performed well. An eject button should be added to rate it five stars. The drive did fail to eject discs when the keyboard command was used on several occasions, but the HELP instructions to restart and hold the mouse button down always ejected the disc during startup.Apple should work on getting the EJECT function to work on command.

    Slow and unreliable

    I've had this for a couple of years, and I have several occasions where it wouldn't read the whole of an audio CD. The local Apple store tried other ones from stock with the same result, yet the CDs read fine on my 14 year old Apacer Disk Steno. It is also disappointingly slow. Expensive, waste of money.

    Not the best

    I expect Apple to be the best. I bought this product 3 years ago and now conclude that there are much better options. It looks like an Apple product - smart and sleek - but it doesn't work to my expectations. It is very sensitive to the slightest mark on a disc. It refuses to download - and hangs so that the only way to eject is to switch off and restart the drive. It also does the same on play. No amount of cleaning makes any difference. These same discs play well on my other independent equipment (Hifi,DVD/BluRay) drives. When it does work it is ok. Note that it also doesn't do BluRay video.

    Super pleased!

    Brought this yesterday, already had the adapter necessary to link up to USB-C. No problems, uploaded 25 CDs straight to iTunes. Okay, expensive I suppose but if it works, I don't mind!

    Extraordinarily inconsistent and useless

    This is one of the worst Apple products I've ever owned. About half of the time when you try to eject a disc, the machine thinks it's ejected, but it's not. Force eject doesn't even work, and there's no physical way on the drive to eject. The only solution I've found is to restart the whole computer; then the disc becomes visible again. On top of all that, why on earth is Apple making a drive that doesn't read blu ray in 2018?

    Dud

    Worked for a while, maybe 6 uses. Now just spins and won't eject a disk. iMac and MacBook Air only recognize it intermittently but still won't eject disk for first 30 or so attempts... Apple fail.

    Apple super drive not up to par

    Not really pleased with this device. It worked for a while (not the fastest, but it did work) final straw, was when I was totally unable to eject a dvd from inside of it. Paid a serviceman to extract it, after all my attempts failed. He got the DVD out and then told me that it probably was not going to be reliable anymore. Very disappointed; it was an expensive expenditure and the results were not up to what I paid for it.

    Junk

    I've kept this item in its original box since I bought it in 2015. It's in perfect condition. It was fine for a while. Over the last year it now decides to spit out CDs mid import and its almost impossible to make it work properly now. Don't buy this.

    Very disappointed

    Unable to get my USB Superdrive to work. My iMac doesn’t show that it recognizes it, and it just reads my discs and ejects them, whereas my MacBookPro, and my Windows laptop have no problems with any of my disks

    It's awesome

    I use this with my Windows computer, and it works great! I just installed the bootcamp ODD driver from Apple, and I can read and write onto discs. Would highly recommend

    awful

    I'm having all of the problems other people mention. It used to be I could insert a CD and the music would automatically download to iTunes. And this is MY CD. I'm not hijacking anyone's music. It's downloading the disk but going to a file called Delicious Library 3, but I can't play music from there. I've also had many problems trying to burn disks. So, where can I find a player that will work? This is not it!
