iMac update targets ATI video card problems

Apple has posted two new firmware updates, addressing separate pieces of hardware. The iMac Graphics FW Update 1.0.2 fixes stability problems on iMacs running an ATI Radeon HD 2600 Pro video card, or else the Radeon HD 2400 XT. Systems must also be operating on Mac OS X 10.5.2 or later.

The Apple RAID Card Firmware Update corrects a larger number of issues, including poor reliability during boot and power fail recovery. Also fixed is a bug in rebuilding a degraded RAID 5 configuration, and another that can lead to filling up the flash file system. Separately, battery handling and reporting is said to be improved.

The RAID firmware is a 26MB download, and requires Mac OS X 10.5.8. It is suggested for all Apple RAID-equipped Mac Pro and Xserve systems from late 2006 or early 2008.

    Not for me

    I have an ATI Radeon HD 2600 Pro video card in my 24" iMac, but the update says it is not for my iMac! Strange...

    Doesn't work for me either Radion HD 2400 XT

    I downloaded the updater directly from Apple for my iMac 20" which system profiler tells me has the ATI Radeon HD 2400 XT mentioned in this article and at the Apple site.

    When I launch the updater, it tells me that my iMac doesn't need it.

    More good coordination out there at Apple.
