Thanks for contacting Plugable support!
The biggest thing to be aware of is that unfortunately, Apple “SuperDrive” requires a direct connection to a supported Mac. From http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2801
"The SuperDrive is designed exclusively for use with MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and Mac mini’s that do not have a built-in optical drive. The SuperDrive must be directly plugged into the computer’s USB port, and cannot be used if connected to a USB hub.”
This is because SuperDrive requires substantially more power than is allowed by USB specifications, and thus won’t work on hubs which are designed to comply with standards.
Many users are also reporting trouble with USB 3.0 external drives not working on Mavericks where they did on Mountain Lion. Currently these seem to be OS level issues, not something we can resolve:
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
