Yes the superdrive is compatible with iMACS through the USB drive. You can find out more through apple.com/support/iMACS.

To the best of my knowledge it IS listed as compatible with laptops like Mac Air. That is, machines WITHOUT a dvd drive. It IS a bit ambiguous, that's how I made the mistake myself when I wanted to use it with my MacBook Pro--not compatible.

I believe it is only supposed to be compatible with Mac computers that do not come with an installed disc drive already.... Mac Mini and MacBook Air come to mind...

I believe Raymond is correct... however, if you're willing to tinker it might be able to be made to work. Google it a bit and you should be able to find instructions for changing a .plist file which might allow it to work. It worked for me on a 13" MBP. I think this is what I used -- http://www.hardturm.ch/luz/2011/10/how-to-make-the-macbook-air-superdrive-work-with-any-mac/

My assumption to this question would be that the iMac has a Drive and they didn't make it for the iMac.
