Why Won’t My Thunderbolt™ Express Dock Detect My Apple USB SuperDrive™

The Apple USB SuperDrive™ is only functional when directly connected to the following computers:

  • MacBook Pro with Retina display
  • MacBook Air
  • iMac (late 2012)
  • Mac mini (late 2009) and later

The SuperDrive™ is designed for exclusive use with the above models that do not have a built-in optical drive. It must be plugged in directly to the computer's USB port, and cannot be powered if connected to the Thunderbolt ™ Express Dock.

For more information on compatibility, please visit the following Apple Support article:
