Repairing

the cable is possible but you might have to cut it shorter and solder it inside the case. Depends upon where the fault is. You can find used Superdrives at reasonable prices for parts, just ensure the one you buy has an intact cable.

I have a similar issues with my Apple USB SuperDrive too. At the beginning of the drive device,the USB cable is little wore out.

Do IFixit have any solution or guide that you can show the Apple end user on how to replace the USB Cable that is attached to the Apple USB SuperDrive?
