Hi! I tried to use the Disc Remote function yesterday to install Logic Studio on my iMac via my old MacBook. But it takes FOREVER to install it! I was at disc 3/7 after six hours! Now i wonder if it's possible to connect my MacBook to my iMac with a thunderbolt cable and use Disc Remote that way, so it won't go over the internet. Is that possible?

    Unfortunately, Remote Disc doesn't work connecting both Macs with Thunderbolt or another connector, so you have to install Logic like you are doing it now or buy the USB SuperDrive

    ***!  I bought a Thuderbolt cable hoping to do the same thing with Adobe Creative Suite.  From the DVD burner on my iMac to my new MacBook Air!  Why on earth doesn't this work?!


    Can I use Migration Assistant to move the Adobe Apps I want from my iMac to my MBA?


    Why should I need to buy a USB super drive when I have a perfectly good DVD drive on my iMac.


    I hope Apple fixes this.
