how do I hook up SuperDrive to iMac
Just got the new 27 inch iMac and purchased SuperDrive. Nothing happens when I plug in USB to Mac. What am I doing wrong?

Plug and play. There will be no Icon on the screen until you insert a DVD, CD, Install disk. That is my experience and I have two different Mac computers I use it on. Hope this helps!

Just FYI for anyone else who has this question. The SuperDrive was connecting to the iMac, but wouldn't accept CDs. There seems to be some kind of issue with the SuperDrive and the new iMac. We tried 2 SuperDrives and finally had to exchange the iMac itself. SuperDrive still didn't work. Returned it. Bought an LG at BestBuy - works perfectly! It does need to be plugged into a separate power source - maybe that's the problem with the Apple SuperDrive?? Not enough power?

Through the one of the 4 USB ports available on the iMac.
