    Hi all

    My Mini has a superdrive MATSHITA DVD-R UJ-846 which has stopped recording dvds at higher speeds, and from what i have read there is a firmware update out there (2.1). Anyone know where it can be found, I found loads of links but they are all dead ones.

    My system profiler says that i have firmware revision FM3J. This machine is just out of warranty and it used to burn these disks before which are the same brand as i have always used in the past.

    Any help would be great.

    Thanks in advance.

    It would have been nice to have had some help on this one, but i guess with all the hype over that new stuff, my problems with the drive dont seem important.
    Oh well thanks anyway and i will try and figure it out myself and enjoy looking at all the new imacs.

    Worked fine for me, even on a Windows laptop. The site did take a long time to load. Maybe have someone else download it for you to a USB drive? Good luck.
