The Apple SuperDrive was a floppy disk drive that offered high-capacity storage to owners of Macintosh and Apple II personal computers. Using high-density, double-sided 3.5-inch floppy disks, the Apple SuperDrive offered twice the storage capacity of standard 800K disk drives. It also enabled exchange of information between Macintosh and MS-DOS, OS/2, and ProDOS systems. Read the original specifications of the Apple SuperDrive at the Apple Support site.
