Use the Apple external SuperDrive on (almost) any Mac

Thanks! :-) Regarding DVD player - I've long replaced it with VLC, which works fine to play DVDs from any drive (internal, external, originally Apple or not) connected to a Mac. And it plays many other video formats as well.

I use VLC, but I find that it doesn't update the screen as smoothly as possible. It also stutters a bit too much, especially after being paused.

i found a hack to modify DVDPlayback.framework to work with external drives, I'll try that soon and report back if it worked.
