How to install a Superdrive Apple USB drive on my 1MAC who uses ElCapitain

How to install a Superdrive USB drive on my new iMac that uses the ElCapitain operating system?


If your computer came originally with a SuperDrive drive, simply plug.

If so, Apple's SuperDrive USB is not intended if you wish, you can operate in editing a plist in the computer files.

  • Superdrive Apple USB drive problem

    Situation: The internal superdrive on my MacBook 2009 stop working while I bought a new USB Superdrive.  And only after I plugged it in, has indicated that it is incompatible with my computer.  After reviewing the advice here, I said that most of the optical USB drives on the market are compatible with my computer, so it's something to look at.  However, this year I plan to get a new MacBook, date at which I will need an optical drive that works with newer computers.

    Question: Will be one of the current after the market of optical drives work with the new MacBook? Or should I just keep the Apple Superdrive that I currently have to use?

    Thank you in advance.

    No first hand experience, but I think that number of external optical drives from third party works pretty much any computer that has USB (and much less expensive than the Superdrive).  The only glitch, I know is that application Apple DVD Player can bother but there is a harmless hack that gets around that, or you can use an alternative player such as VLC (I never use DVD player).

    You can browse the web site OWC/mac -  If you know exactly what you want and need no support there are many places to watch it's maybe a dollar or two cheaper but every time that I'm not sure I call them and ask and am happy to spend the little extra to support the customer.

  • Pouvez the Superdrive Apple USB used with windows computer

    Can I use the Superdrive Apple USB with the windows computer

    Only on a USB Bus, which can provide more standard power 500 milliamps.

    Apple computers that support this drive directly have a USB function that allows it to attract more of the standard.

    Drive sharing

    If your Mac is not a built-in optical drive, and you must use a CD or DVD, you can connect an external drive as the SuperDrive Apple USB.

    You can also share disks of the optical drive of another Mac or a Windows computer that has the DVD or CD sharing Setup installed. Sharing of CD or DVD allows you to access documents stored on these disks and allows you to install some software.

  • No Apple USB driver in Windows 10 Device Manager

    Is there a way to retrieve the Apple USB driver in Windows 10 Device Manager.  I downloaded the iTunes 12.3.3 yesterday and now he is gone.

    I tried

    • plug into each of my Apple devices (iPod, iPad, iPhone, iPhone 4S 6)
    • restarting my computer
    • disabled my virus protection software
    • synchronization with different strings (some Apple, others not)
    • my devices restart and try again
    • Uninstalling iTunes and reinstalling
    • Uninstalling iTunes and goes back to and older version
    • make a Windows system to a restore point when I could synchronize my devices

    My main problem is that I need to sync my devices and iTunes does not detect them without the driver.  Windows can detect my devices and they appear in the file Explorer.  I am also able to get pictures and videos I've taken off the power unit and on my computer with no problems.

    Anything else I can try?  I'm out of ideas.  Thank you!

    This can help:

    If iTunes does not recognize your iPhone, iPad or iPod - Apple Support

    Refer to the section:

    If you are using a Windows PC

    and read carefully.  Depending on your version of Windows the Apple Mobile device driver may appear in different places.

    You should never get too low on your space of hard drive as the OS needs a minimum 10-15 GB of free space at any time to work properly. So, if you do any movie or image/photo, rendering and editing editing works best if you have at least as much vacuum you have temporary files in your project. I can easily raise 100 GB or more temp. files for a one hour film HD, so I keep a lot of empty hard disk space.

    In order to get a few things on your hard drive, the usual space hoggers are therefore, movies, photos, etc. You can move all those who in their library on an external hard drive, and after having checked they are working, delete them from your hard drive.

    Generally, the application work better if they are installed on your internal hard drive; I'm not a gamer, so I'm not familiar with the specifics of the game you're talking about.

  • How to install windows on the new drive?


    I have a HP Pavilion dv7-3080, which came with Windows7. Now, I bought a 120 GB SSD. I tried to install Windows on the SSD by selecting Factory Reset. However, I get the message that the size of the hard drive has changed and that's why I can't use Factory Reset.

    Is there a way how can I use the Windows7 that came with my laptop and install this on my new drive!

    To my knowledge, I am not break everything right since Windows7 came with the laptop and was part of the price I paid for the laptop.

    Kind regards



    Partitions or recovery discs do not work on a smaller hard drive.

    You need to install a simplified version of windows 7 on your SSD. You will not break the laws or rules of license by using the product key on the bottom of the PC to activate the installation.

    However, if you can not read all 25 characters of the product key you are flat out of luck and will have to buy a new operating system.

    Here's how to make your own simple Windows 7 installation disc if you have not already.

    If you can read the Microsoft windows 7 25-character product key, you can download simple Windows 7 ISO files to burn on a DVD for the version of windows that is installed on your PC, and which is listed on the Microsoft COA sticker on your PC case.

    Burn the ISO with the option to burn the ISO on your DVD burning program and burn it at the slowest possible speed that will allow your program. This will create a bootable DVD.

    Or use the installation of Windows 7 USB/DVD tool to compile the ISO file that you download from Digital River. Link and instructions below. You need a 4 GB flash drive to use the USB compilation method.

    Use 25 characters on the PC product key to activate the installation.

    The key will activate a 32 or 64 bit installation.

    Then go to the support of the PC and driver page to install the drivers you need.

  • Dell laptop, cannot install the drivers for USB drives.

    Although the fans more of my family and the power of Google, I can not solve this problem is to have my sister.

    Each USB key she inserts into his laptop computer are, although recognized, never installed.  For example, when I install in another computer USB flash drive, the typical action should be that either the system operating rises automatically the drive to a letter on my computer, or invite an Assistant saying that it will try to install the drivers for the flash player and do it automatically.

    When I insert a flash drive into this laptop, however, it will prompt me to find the location of the folder where the drivers for the USB key is installed.  When I ask for an alternative, he will try to find it through Windows Update for drivers, then answer he found nothing.

    I tried to assign the same flash as a generic device drive in Device Manager, but nothing helps: the flash player still will not mount in my computer properly.  Windows Update, moreover, indicates that the system is up-to-date.

    Any ideas on how to fix this, so that the laptop in the world will recognize volumetric flash drives and devices entry without asking for the location of the driver?  That is, a system of 'plug & play' with all USB devices?

    "Windows Update, moreover, indicates that the system is up to date."

    You get the manufacturer's operating system hardware drivers: Dell.

    Go to the website of the manufacturer of your computer/laptop > drivers and downloads Section > key in your model number > look for the latest Vista drivers > download/install them.

    See you soon.
