Hello Scott San Bruno,

Thanks for visiting the Apple Support Communities and asking your question. This help article has the information you seek: Mac computers that can use the Apple USB SuperDrive

The Apple USB SuperDrive and MacBook Air SuperDrive are compatible with any Mac made after 2008 that doesn’t have a built-in optical drive.

You can connect your Apple USB SuperDrive to the USB port on your Mac, or to the USB port on a Cinema Display (24-inch LED), LED Cinema Display (27-inch), or Apple Thunderbolt Display (27-inch) that's connected to your Mac.

To connect your SuperDrive to your MacBook (2015 and later), or your MacBook Pro (2016 and later), you can use one of these adapters:

*If you're using a MacBook Air SuperDrive manufactured before Fall 2010, it won't work with the USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter or the USB-C VGA Multiport Adapter. To identify these drives, plug in the drive and open System Information. Click the Disk Burning tab in the System Information window. If your SuperDrive displays 1CHQ or 2CH9 as its firmware version, it's not supported with these USB-C adapters.

Thanks and have a great evening.
