Mac Superdrive Manual Eject

Posted on

Launch the application and use the eject command to eject the CD or DVD. Use the Eject menu applet located in the Mac's menu bar. If you don't see one, you can add a menu bar item to eject a CD or DVD. When all else fails, click and hold the mouse or trackpad button while restarting your Mac.

With this change I am without issues able to run the SuperDrive, lying conveniently in my bookshelf, connected to a Belkin ThunderBolt Dock. It is a powered Hub, so YMMV if you try with an El Cheapo solution.
