Using an Apple Superdrive on Fedora



Tags: superdrive apple

As described on, in order to use the Apple Superdrive on Linux, you need to add a custom udev rule (/etc/udev/rules.d/99-superdrive.rules).

# Initialise Apple SuperDrive
ACTION=="add", ATTRS{idProduct}=="1500", ATTRS{idVendor}=="05ac", DRIVERS=="usb", RUN+="/usr/bin/sg_raw /dev/$kernel EA 00 00 00 00 00 01"

However, by default Fedora doesn’t ship with sg3_utils installed by default, so you’ll need to install it.
