I've used terminal to change the file, and those changes appear as they are supposed to, but it doesn't have the desired effect, i.e., the computer still won't allow operation of the superdrive. Other people with similar systems and OS are able to make it work.
Does anyone know why on my system, "system" has read & write permissions, but I, as owner, am not even listed in the permissions list for this file? (I haven't checked to see what the case is on other files.) This doesn't seem to be the case for others, where the owner has read & write permissions, and "system" isn't even on the list. It may be irrelevant to why this isn't working, but it's the only thing I can think of at the moment.
BTW, it doesn't seem to matter if I change the permissions or not. It doesn't work any way I do it.

The permissions of the file are correct. Don't change them. You're trying to hack your system based on information from some random website. That's a bad idea in itself. If the hack doesn't work for you, just don't do it.

Thanks-- you're probably right. Just making sure that it isn't something simple that I can do to make it work.
Wish Apple could do something to make this device work with all their machines, but I guess there are copyright issues that prevent them from doing so.
