I have a SuperDrive that does not draw enough power froma  pwered USB hub or from the USB port on my 30" Cinema Display or from the USB port on the back of my Time Capsule.  The ONLY thing I have that's powerful enough to power the SuperDrive is my MacBook Pro.  The problem with that for me is that my MBP has only two USB ports - one is taken up by my Cinema Display, and the other by the powered USB hub that connects (among other things) my speakers.  So if I want to watch a movie, I have to disconnect either the Cinema Display or the speakers.  Bummer.


So here's my question ...


Exactly how much power does the SuperDrive require, and is there any other hub or device that will supply that much power so I can have the SuperDrive plugged in without disconnecting either the monitor or speakers?

MacBook Pro with Retina display, iOS 6.0.2
