can apple usb super drive work wirelessly through airport time capsule?

If this is plugged into the usb port on the airport just like a printer would be, will the super drive be available to all computers on the network wirelessly?

  • Best Answer:

    Sorry, but No. Three problems: (1) The USB Superdrive is configured to only work with specific Apple computers that have no CD/DVD drive. (2) Network sharing of the Super Drives only works when they are directly connected to a Mac with CD and DVD sharing enabled. (3) The Airports and Time Capsule does not appear to provide power to external USB devices.
