    Hello I just purchased a Space Grey Macbook. I was trying to install Windows with parallels via an optical drive. The optical drive works perfectly fine on my old macbook air but my new Macbook won't read it. Anyone have any issues similar to mine?

    Is it the Apple SuperDrive? If so, if it is from before 2010 the USB port on the multi-port adapter doesn't draw enough power to run the drive. Try the straight USB-C to USB-A adapter, or a different optical drive.
