  • 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, 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 Type-A 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.

      Nothing 'super' about it...

      I bought the superdrive as an essential piece of kit to accompany my Macbook pro (2015 model) as it did not have a built-in drive. The main reason I decided to I bought the superdrive as an essential piece of kit to accompany my Macbook pro (2015 model) as it did not have a built-in drive. The main reason I decided to pay the premium, the best part of £80, was the fact it was an Apple product - a brand I was familiar with and so far had not let me down. Unfortunately this drive is very temperamental, sometimes I have to load a CD into the drive multiple times before it works at all. Sometimes it takes 2 hours to import a single CD and even this is not done correctly as only 30 seconds of the CD gets imported. Apple has moved away from built-in drives and my Macbook pro is amazing. However as apple moves away from USB slots ect., and we have to buy these add ons I expect them to at least work. My confidence in the brand and the products has been severely knocked and its hard to to feel cheated out of so much money. I was lured in by the brand and the attractive design but thats all this have to offer, my advice would be to buy a cheaper drive that actually works and spend the rest of the money saved on more CD's!

It gets near to the the end of ripping a CD and gives up and spits it out. Very disappointed looking to get another cheaper make.

      Outdated.... only has old USB connector

      Bought this to use with my new Mac - which only has USB-c ports. the 'Super'Drive is not 'super' - it has an old style USB connector and needs an adapter to us Bought this to use with my new Mac - which only has USB-c ports. the 'Super'Drive is not 'super' - it has an old style USB connector and needs an adapter to use it with the new Mac. If you try to use it with a hub it doesn't power through it and won't work, so I now need another, USB-c to USB adaptor. Come on Apple - surely if you think USB-c is the future, shouldn't your accessories have the same connector? Waste of money.
