Save this file to /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist
This will enable the Apple MacBook Air SuperDrive on more Macs than just the MacBook Air and Mac Mini.

You may also have lines like these:

I tried adding those lines in but it won't let me edit and save the file... how am I supposed to get around that?
@samuelslaughter you need to open the .plist with superuser/admin privileges. try:
sudo nano /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist
forgot to mention, that command would be in the Terminal.app, found in Applications/Utilities folder.
