Power for a SuperDrive to operate with MacBook Pro/ USB C.

I purchased a powered hub for a Macbook Pro with USB-C connection. The question is We needed power for the SuperDrive(DVD) player to work through the USB 3.0 power port, Do you have a product that can provide the power for the SuperDrive to play without connecting to the MacBook Pro.

Thank you for your time

Hello Daniel,

Thank you for contacting Plugable support! I’d be more than happy to assist you.

You’ll need to connect the SuperDrive directly to the MacBook Pro using a passive USB-A to C adapter. The drive should not be connected through a hub or a dock:

Please don’t hesitate to let us know of other questions.

Thanks again for contacting Plugable support and best wishes!
