I am having trouble looking for firmware for the product stated in the Subject. The firmware I am looking for is an upgrade for firmware UFS1. I found one on Sony support, and it only works on the VAIO it originally came out of (I think). Can anyone give me a web address with a firmware update that will work on my machine and on the disc drive?

If the firmware matches the model of the optical drive it should work. I don't see how the drive would be linked to the computer.

Why do you need to update the firmware anyway? Are you having issues with recognizing blank media?

Is this a laptop optical drive?

I need an update because I am having the problem where the CD switches itself off at startup (with error IDE #1 Error), and works after waking the system from sleep. It is a laptop optical drive, and the laptop is a TOSHIBA Satellite A40. The firmware update provided actually checks whether the system is a VAIO or not, and quits because the system isn't a VAIO.
