Does anyone have an alternative for the Disc Info tool from rpc1.org? I used to use it quite successfully. However, the last update to that tool was in 2008, and it doesn't work any more with the newer OSs.
What I am looking for is a tool that
(a) checks the firmware of the optical drive, and
(b) searches the rpc1.org database to see if there is a newer firmware update available for that drive.
