Specs first: 12" powerbook, 1.33ghz

How can I tell if my superdrive has been upgraded? I bought my powerbook used.. didn't really pay attention to it til now, but when I looked up the superdrive model that's installed, it came back with these capabilities:

The official capabilities of the drive are:
5X Speed DVD-RAM Writing
8X Speed DVD-R Writing
4X Speed DVD-RW Writing
24X Speed CD-R Writing
16X Speed CD-RW Writing
8X Speed DVD+R Writing
4X Speed DVD+RW Writing
24X Speed CD-ROM Reading
8X Speed DVD-ROM Reading
Buffer Under Run Protection
+R Dual Layer Writing

This differs from the specs on lowendmac.com.. so...?
