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.
Alternatively, you can use a driver update tool to scan your system for outdated drivers and install the latest ones for you. Either way, keeping your drivers up-to-date is essential for a well-running computer. So make sure to check for updates regularly and install any new drivers as soon as they become available.
If you are running a Windows 10 or Mac operating system, you may occasionally see an option for a beta Mac or Windows update. This is usually when the manufacturer is in the pre-rollout phase and is extending access to newer, less stable operating system drivers to developers or people who want a crack at the latest features. 7211a4ac4a
