Just got a new Macbook pro with retina display and I can't get it to recognize the USB Super drive plugged into the USB port. The disk spins up but never mounts on the desktop. Can't load my software without it..... $3500 paper weight at the moment..... not happy!

G'day and welcome to the forums.

What type of optical drive is this?

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

The one thing I hadn't checked was looking for the drive in the finder app. The USB super drive icon doesn't appear on the desktop but is available in the finder. Can't believe I didn't check that.
