Q & As

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 106 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by A really neat addition to the iMac computer Very easy to install with a simple single usb connection. Once you get the correct menus very easy to use either to upload or download. My only comment is why it could not be integral with the computer in the first place? I guess its obvious because of iTunes 12 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Apple CD reader / writer Easy to use. Mainly used by grand children. So simple to them. 12 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really useful product. Found this a useful extra to my MacBook, very simple to use once I had found more detailed instructions for the task I first wanted it for. 09 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Apple DVD writer Bought this as I have a Mac Air with no DVD writer this is excellent 05 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Does what it should A simple to use product just plug it in Worked strait away as expected not at all complicated as some other Apple products also looks good 05 April 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Uncertain Have predominately used this drive to download CDs to my iMac. Some CDs have only partially loaded despite being capable of being read by other CD players. Otherwise a nice bit of kit in terms of size and connectivity. 04 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really easy to use Delivery from on line order was quick and packaging was protective without being excessive. Simple to follow instructions and instant 'plug and play' use. Very pleased with this purchase. 22 March 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good but could be better? Having got used to the excellence of Apple products in terms of everything from the packaging to the product performance, I must say I was slightly disappointed in this item. Don't get me wrong it does do the job, probably in the best way possible, giving Apple their due. For me however, they could improve the way the machine takes the disc and pulls it in. This is not very smooth and the disc goes in at an angle. Also there is some sound as the disc rotates, again I may be being too picky and have no experience of similar machines as a comparison. 22 March 2016
