Bought new apple superdrive, plugged it in and it wont work on my imac early 2009 24" HELP
It's not supposed to. It can be gotten to work, but you may be better off returning it and using a third-party SuperDrive.
Looks that way, only i cannot return the superdrive, does anyone know of any 3rd party external drives that will work, i have looked on pc world and some are quite reasonable in price....
I'd personally avoid any Bus powered drives, get one with AC power...
The Apple USB SuperDrive only works with Macs that don't have a built-in SuperDrive.
Whatever optical drive you purchase, get one that uses it's own power supply and isn't getting power from the computer s own powwe supply.
