    I did a software update and downloaded a superdrive update. Now every time I restart i get a message that i don't need this update and at this point i just can't find where this file is to delete it. I don't want to restart every time and get this message. I thought I had a superdrive. I can burn dvds. Its a macbook 2.0 with a dvd/cd burner a MATSHITA DVD-R UJ-857:.

    I believe you can remove the update program if the update was applied successfully. First go to System Preferences > Accounts and remove the update app under "Login Items." You can then trash the actual updater app. It is located in Applications/Utilities.

    I went to what you said and I checked the superdrive app and it still comes up after a restart. This is getting lame.

    The check does not actually remove the item. I had to select the app entry and click the minus button to completely remove it from the list.

    That Worked For Me

    Thanks. Removing the SuperDrive Update 2.1 file from Applications/Utilities got rid of the annoying dialog. :)
