Tricky situation ... Technically, is should be able to, (with minor Hardware modifications) as it is using a USB as a Connector, but, thou mentioned as MINOR modifications, its not so easy as it is made out to sound. But Apple have encoded the drive so it should be able to identify and reject any computer if it is not on the "APPROVED" list, which ironically include certain MAC computers as well.
It can be setup to be 'SHARED' over a WIFI Network as well.
But to be on the safe side, IF you intent to connect it straight to a Windows PC, 3.1 --> 8, I would have to say NO, it will NOT work with default Factory Settings.

No the super drive is meant for MACS that do not have a inbuilt cd drive.
