Question: apple superdrive burner wzg900

When I connect my apple superdrive burner to my Mac book pro, via USB, a message appears on screen saying power is required. The CD is not drawn in even though I attempt push the disk completely in. The eject command does work.

Can you advise please.

Regards

Is it plugged directly to the MacBook Pro? It won't work with a USB hub. Does the MacBook Pro have a builtin optical drive? If so, you need a special Terminal command to allow the external Apple Superdrive to work.

Thanks for that Malcolm. The MacBook Pro has the tiny thunderbolt connectors and does not have a optical drive. The superdrive that I need to connect to the MacBook has a USB connector.

I am trying to use the superdrive by connecting via a hub which has 2 x USB, 1 x HDMI and 1 x HDMI.

Should I buy a different connector ?

Thank You
