Accessory outfitter Other World Computing announced today the release of its Apple/Mac compatible firmware updater for SandForce-Driven Solid State Drives. The fully Mac bootable updater is freely available from OWC for use exclusively with select OWC Mercury Solid State Drive models manufactured since January 2010. This new Mac compatible firmware updater is in addition to firmware update support OWC previously made available for Macintosh computers via the use of Boot Camp, as well as for PCs running the Windows OS.

To run the updater, Mac users only need to download the updater from OWC’s site, obtain and burn a DVD, and then boot from that DVD to launch an easy to use, point and click GUI for installing the latest firmware revision to their OWC Mercury SSD.

If you’ve tried the updater and have any feedback to offer, please let us know via the comments and thank you.
