    I want to buy an external DVD-drive for my MBA but since I will only use it from time to time, I don't want to fork out that much money for a genuine Apple drive.

    So I started looking for alternatives and found this :

    According to user reviews, it works on Mountain Lion no problem. My question however is whether it will work when I plug it into my USB2 hub instead of directly into the MBA. I've heard that Apple's own drive only works when you plug it into the USB-port on the right hand side of the MBA.
    Can anyone confirm this ?

    I can't confirm it will work but it should.

    Coincidently I bought this yesterday for my MBP!

    So far I am very impressed with it for the cost!
