Apple: The Remote Disk feature isn’t enough

August 17, 2011 at 5:22 pm Leave a comment

I’m using a new 2011 Mac Mini.  It’s the one without an optical drive.  When I need to use an optical device, I’m supposed to put it in another computer and access it across the network.  The first time I did this, it was to rip a DVD, and it worked great.  I was actually a little shocked by how well it worked, honestly.

A few days later, I went to rip another one.  It didn’t work so well.  I’m guessing it had some sort of copy protection on it or something.  A few days later I tried a different DVD and had the same lousy results.

While you may not need an optical drive to install software often, and the Remote Disk feature may work fine for that, there are still other reasons to have a real optical drive…
