Apple Super Drive [Solved]

Post by shade304 » Fri Jun 28, 2013 13:45

From a command line "lsusb" shows the following information but is unable to use drive:
Bus 002 Device 007: ID 05ac:1500 Apple, Inc. SuperDrive [A1379]

Entering the following command makes the drive usable:
~$ sg_raw /dev/sr0 ea 00 00 00 00 00 01

As long as the drive remains powered it will continue to work, so you can reboot and install Sabayon from the drive
