If there is a newer firmware for your drive, then it is available from the manufacturer of your computer. Panasonic has been very effective in tying their drives to computer manufacturers.

well Panasonic is no longer supporting the drive, it was easy to go to their site and download it.
There is no computer manufacturer, the drive is standalone.

This drives doesnt exist as “standalone”, only as internal one with the model name “Panasonic SW-5583-C” single drive, SATA or as Panasonic SW-5583".

If it were a standalone, it were featured here: http://www.panasonic.net/blu-ray/

This is still an OEM drive and therefore Panasonic would give no support.
