Laptop SuperDrive firmware

Apple today posted an update to its SuperDrive firmware for its laptops. The 12MB SuperDrive Firmware Update 2.1, which is installed in the '/Applications/Utilities' folder, improves readability of certain CD media on most its MacBook laptops (all but the currently shipping models), according to the company. It requires Mac OS X 10.4.4 or later and either the original MacBook Pro Core Duo (15 -inch 1.83GHz, 2.0GHz, or 2.16GHz) MacBook Pro Core 2 Duo (15 -inch 2.16GHz or 2.33GHz); MacBook Core Duo (13 -inch 1.83GHz or 2.0GHz); or MacBook Core 2 Duo (13 -inch 1.83GHz or 2.0GHz). In concert with updates to all of the Final Cut Studio applications, Apple also released Final Cut Pro 6.0.1, which delivers improved stability; support for the AVCHD format through the Log and Transfer interface; FXPlug improvements with Motion and third-party applications; improved master template support and resolution of issues with long filenames.

    Not needed?

    This firmware update showed up and downloaded as usual on my MacBook C2D 2.0, but when I went to run it, it said there was no hardware found that needed the update.

    The update started running by itself after I chose shut down from the restart menu. To my horror, the system powered off in the middle of the update. SuperDrive was destroyed. Apple did fix it for free but never admitted they had caused the damage. Oh well, still love those Apple goodies!
