Apple SuperDrive firmware update kills the drive

OnTheWay (529387) writes "There are an increasing number of reports on the Apple discussion boards that the recent SuperDrive Update 2.1 leaves the drive non-functioning. Users report various issues, such as drive's failure to "pull in" the disc, failure to read certain formats (i.e. DVDs but CDs, or vice-versa), etc. On my Intel Macbook, I can't read data DVDs now, but retail movie DVDs work fine.

Problems seem to be affecting MacBooks and MacBooks Pros, but not the Intel-based desktops. See the MacBook discussion subforum on optical drives here."
