The only 'update' released so far is the DLA patch specifically for Dell computers to cure a problem with Drag to Disc. However, most of us here uninstall D2D as it's reliability is almost as good as that of an igloo on the equator, especially for back-up purposes

 

There is an update due out any time now but it hasn't been released just yet. Just keep checking in here

You can uninstall it from the programs section of the Vista control panel.Another thing you can do is go to Accesories,Run and type msconfig.When it comes up find D2D and uncheck it and reboot your computer.When Vista reboots you'll get a balloon that says programs are blocked.Click on it and then check the little box in the bottom left corner.This will stop D2D from loading at boot and also stop the message.

I have no direct to-do list for you......but I have a new XPS M1710 notebook with Vista Home Premium and the Blu-Ray drive works fine with no "updates". Cyberlink PowerDVD-DX plays commercial BD-ROM titles and my own from Roxio DVDit Pro HD BD-Rs made on my desktop. The drive sees and reads the directory of the BD-RE/DL/50 backup I have made on the same desktop w/ Sony BWU-100a and Cyberlink suite. Perhaps the Business version lacks some pieces and either Home Premium or Vista Ultimate may have been better in 20-20 hindsight.
