New update, only applicable to some superdrives (namely the MAT****A UJ-835E and UJ-835F it seems). Update info from apple's site :

Quote:
The SuperDrive Firmware Update fixes burning speeds when writing to certain recordable DVD media.

You can print these instructions and refer to them while you are updating the firmware.

System Requirements

- Mac OS X v10.3.9 Panther or Mac OS X v10.4.6 Tiger

- One of the following products:
PowerBook G4 (12 -inch 1.5GHz)
PowerBook G4 (15-inch 1.33GHz, 1.5GHz, or 1.67GHz)
PowerBook G4 (17-inch 1.67GHz)
iMac G5 (17-inch 1.6GHz or 1.8GHz)
iMac G5 (20-inch 1.8GHz)
Mac mini G4

Installing the SuperDrive Firmware Update

Follow these steps to install the update:
1. Save all open documents and quit all applications.
2. Double-click the SuperDrive Firmware Update icon.

If you meet the system requirements and cannot update the firmware using this program, contact your local Apple Authorized Service Provider or an Apple Store retail location.

Important: Do not reset, shut down, or turn off power to your computer while updating the firmware. Doing so may damage your SuperDrive.

Ya, I tried installing the thing and it wouldn't install. I'm going to have to go to an Apple Store and see what's up with my computer now...
