    Hello everyone. Just a quick question.

    I currently have a standard MacBook which only has the Combo Drive and I'm now considering making and burning DVDs.

    My question is whether I could buy and use the external USB SuperDrive that is made for the MacBook Air with a standard MacBook?

    If this is possible, I would anticipate this to be a cheaper option than having the drive replaced internally, which I'm not even sure is possible.

    Any responses would be appreciated.:)

    I know for a fact that the Macbook Air Super Drive only works for the MacBook Air. Sorry, I know. I guess Apple wants to keep it for only the Air.

    Just found out on Engadget too.

    Thanks for the response anyway.

    Not a problem at all, I too wished it would work with an older mac that I have.
