For Mac only?

  • from Forget,SK


This model worked very well right out of the box, until, suddenly,a week later, it didn't. Wont power up, macpro wont recognize it, and it ate my CD master. So no, not recommended

  • from Hamilton, ON


For me this unit plays and burns CD's very well. I like the slim design. For whatever reason the unit will not play DVD's properly. The sound and picture are out of sync. The power cord is ridiculously short. If I can find a way to get the unit to play DVD's well I will write a better review.

Don't buy this if you don't want a headache

I have an old iBook G4. The internal CD drive died on me so I bought a Superdrive. When I hooked it up to my iBook G4, there's no power to the drive. The Superdrive is like dead. So I got a generic external CD drive and it works fine. I expected better from Apple. I'm returning this Superdrive at earliest convenience.

Didn't quite meet my expectations

I received the Apple superdrive yesterday. The cord that is attached to the superdrive can't be removed and it is a little on the short side. Also the drive doesn't support DVD-RAM discs which I use most of the time. Performance wise, it burns DVD's pretty fast. Other than that, it's Ok. Would be more worthwhile if it supported DVD-RAM.

Very nice

Vice nice. Slim design. Would get it again. Be would be better if they would still come built in.

  • from Surrey, BC

5 stars across the board!

The reader is fast in my opinion, (I only use it a few times a month) No installation required, you just had to plug it into your macbook I tunes automatically asks you if you would like to import the songs on the cd to itunes
