    I have an Apple dvd drive which I'm trying to get to work with my SP4.
    Based on advice and what I'd read I had assumed the problem was lack of power to the USB port, but I've just tried it with a powered USB hub and it still doesn't work.
    Any ideas?
    thx

    The Apple Superdrive DVD is a USB 3 device, which will work with Windows 8 or 10, provided you install the appropriate driver.
    I use mine with the Surface Book and the Surface Pro 3.

    Search the Internet for PC driver for Apple Superdrive DVD Windows 10. Beware of malware.

    Thanks. I've installed AppleODDInstaller64.zip and at least now it is accepting the disk (a step forward from before). But it is unable to read it and spits it out soon after.
