SuperDrive firmware update
Apple today released SuperDrive Firmware Update 2.0, fixing burning speeds when writing to certain recordable DVD media. The update requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later, and is offered as a one-click installation. Users who meet the system requirements but who cannot update the firmware are encouraged to contact their local Apple Authorized Service Provider or an Apple Store retail location. Apple also warns users not to reset, shut down, or turn off power to a Mac while updating the firmware, as doing so may damage the SuperDrive. The update is available as a free download from Apple.
