MacBook 8x SuperDrive

Hi

Ordered a replacement superdrive (MATSHITA DVD+/-RW UJ-857G) for my MacBook in november from you. Installment was easy but cant get it to run, need to upgrade my superdrive firmware.

I need help find out what firmware its compatible to my OS (OSX 10.4.11) and the superdrive i bought from you.

What I found so far:

SuperDrive Firmware Update v2.0 (not working on my OS compatible up to 10.4.6)

SuperDrive Firmware Update 3.0 (does not work on my System Requirements Mac OS X 10.5.7 or later)

The only firmware that seams to work with the drive shipped to me is the notorious v2.1

This is a good question, As you can see, Apple no longer offer a download of it.

Other sites I have looked at without success

  • MacUpdate
  • FindMySoft
  • MacOSXHints
  • Wareseeker

Basically, I can't find it. But you might want to read this if you do find it.
