    the superdrive uses the USB 2.0, but it's anyways more than you need when burning a CD / DVD, due to burning restrictions concerning media speed (for example, you cannot burn a DVD at very high speeds, and the highest speed at which you can burn a DVD is way below USB 3.0 data transfer speed, so you don't need it anyway). hope that helps :)
