Firmware update

Guess I didn't search hard enough...

Do they make Mac updaters available? I really don't feel like moving the drive to a PC to install it. An alternative would be to run the updater in Virtual PC, but I'd be worried what would happen if it didn't work...

Firmware update

The updater won't work in Virtual PC without some extra hardware. VPC doesn't have direct hardware access to an ATA drive such as your Pioneer drive (I have the same one.) But for some reason VPC does have direct hardware access to the drive if its connected through USB. This means that if you have an external USB case and you install your Pioneer drive in it you should be able to run the firmware updater in VPC.

Note: external firewire will not work. Only USB will work.

That latest firmware version for the A06/106 is 1.07. There is a cracked, region free version available out there if you know where to look. Also, there is no native Mac firmware updater for this drive.
