How can I get the USB Super Drive model A1379 to work with my Mac Pro Quad Core computer? I rebooted my computer, searched for drives - could not locate it on the Apple computer. Apple support stated bad drive. I exchanged the drive and started over with reboot. This operation did not help.
Unfortunately, the Apple USB SuperDrive will not work with a Mac Pro. Check the System Requirements here.
There are hacks you can try - but it may be better in this case to get a different (3rd party) drive.
