Apple USB SuperDrive
Apple USB SuperDrive
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.

Will this drive play NTSC DVD

Yes, it will play DVDs. But read on... That said, I notice you're from London. What you need to k Yes, it will play DVDs. But read on... That said, I notice you're from London. What you need to know is that this drive will allow you play any region DVD -initially-. After the fifth time you play DVDs from different regions, the drive assigns the last region permanently. The UK is region 2. Let's say you play a UK disc, then switch to a US (region 1) disc. You'll be fine. But after five swaps, you'll end up with your drive set to the last region.
