With the exception of the MacBook Pro (without Retina Display) all new Macs no longer feature DVD SuperDrives (Apple’s optical disc reading and writing technology). There’s no physical drive for you to play CDs or DVDs on.
This makes playing DVD movies on a Mac somewhat more challenging. However, there are some options available to you.
Method1：Buy a Apple USB SuperDrive
Apple sells a USB SuperDrive for £65 that connects to a iMac, Mac mini, MacBook Pro with Retina Display or MacBook Air.
Method2：With Mac DVD ripping tool
