Apple usb Super Drive

My super drive has stopped working. When I plug it into the computer it is not recognized. Checked it in a different computer and it works. I have a late 2012 iMac running the latest OS. Is there some way to get the computer to recognize the drive


Had a friend try the drive and it worked on their computer. Borrowed their drive and it worked on my computer. They were kind enough to swap drives so now I have one that works. Weird.

Super Drive not Recognized

Did you happen to look at "About this Macintosh" and then look at the "System Report" and see if it sees the drive. Sometimes a restart works. The only other thing I would have tried is switching USB ports to see if there might be a dirty contact in the computer. Glad you found a solution.
