Use the Apple external SuperDrive on (almost) any Mac
Authored by: CyborgSam2011 on Nov 11, '11 01:48:20PM

There's one very good reason to use the MacBook Air SuperDrive vs 3rd party drives: Apple's DVD Player app will ONLY work with Apple external DVD drives.

I've tried VLC and others, they just don't navigate menus & play DVDs as well as Apple's.

I just out an OWC Data Doubler in my MacBook Pro (replaces the SuperDrive with a hard drive/SSD). I bought the MacBook Air SuperDrive to watch DVDs, it stays at home. I put my old SuperDrive in an OWC case and will use it at work where I need to burn, but never watch, DVDs.
