    Hi,
    What does this update do?
    Will it lower the speed? Make it higher?
    Thanks.

    I don't think this update applies to the *Double-layer* Superdrives in the last rev Hi-res PowerBooks.

    The models with MATSHITA DVD drive UJ-825 will display this message upon opening the firmware install icon.

    The update is for Matshita DVD-R UJ-835 drives only. This is stated in the ReadMe file that comes with the update.

    Hizzle dizzle. Maybe now my drive will recognize all my discs. And burn DVD+R. And burn at speeds greater than 1x-2x. And... well, yeah.
