      This utility will examine your system configuration and detect all SATA optical drive (ODD) installed in your ThinkPad. SATA (Serial AT Attachment) is a new interface for storage devices.

      The utility will then check the firmware revision of the ODD and judge whether your system requires a firmware update or not.  If required, it will prompt you to run the appropriate firmware update program for your drive.

      This package will run on the Microsoft Windows XP, Windows 7 (32-bit, 64-bit) and Windows 8.
      (Refer to marketing materials to find out what computer models support which Operating Systems)

      There is no ISO format release for the SATA ODD firmware update.
