I've just purchased a 13" MacBook Pro (not Retina) with an internal SuperDrive. I wanted to use a second SuperDrive so purchased an Apple USB SuperDrive but my MacBook cannot find it. I have also tested this on my friends MacBook Pro and on another 2008 MacBook and on all three MacBooks the USB SuperDrive cannot be found.

 

I then tested it on a friends driveless iMac, and the USB SuperDrive is picked up fine, even when another is connected. This leads me to believe you can not run an addiotnal SuperDrive on MacBooks with an internal SuperDrive but is there anyway around this?
