Usage of USB DVD-Drive on the ActivPanel Touch 86'' version 5

Is it possible to connect and use a portable USB DVD-Drive (such as the Apple SuperDrive USB device) via one of the 2 USB connectors on the Promethean ActivPanel Touch 86'' version 5?
Thank you for your reply.

    Hi Adam,

    OK, thank you for the prompt reply :-)

    At your knowledge, is it possible to have a similar (other manufacturer) USB DVD device to connect to thePromethean ActivPanel Touch 86'' version 5?
    Eventually, to the ActiveConnect Series-G 1.5 GHz, 2 GB DDR3 RAM, 16 GB Internal device it self?

    The need we have is to be able to play DVD movies on the board without the need to have a personal computer nearby and connected to the board to streaming content or duplicate screen.



  • Hi LC_ENSR,

    Thanks for posting.

    For the devices such as Apple SuperDrive USB device, this is designed to be plugged into MacBooks that do not have physical CD/DVD drives, not other devices such as the ActivPanel.
    Please refer to Apple and the specification sheet for this device:
    A lot of other manufacturers of DVD drives do require this to be connected to a computer/laptop in order to use these too.
