    Hi there. I just bought my Surface Pro 4 but I cannot use my Mac Super drive DVD reader yet. I tried to get the drivers in the web but no luck. Can anybody help me with this?
    Thanks

    The Surface can not provide enough power to run the super drive. You either need a dock to provide more power or a different drive. I have an LG which works but the new models detect but as soon as they spin up the power consumption must spike and it drops off.

    Staff corrected a spelling error.
