Sony has released an updated version of the PDWU1 utility software which contains a new firmware package for the PDWU1 drive. The software supports snow leopard and amongst other things Sony says it gives “greater USB stablity” when transferring data. While that means little to me at a technical level, at a practical level I have noticed a significant improvement in the rate at which data is read and written to the drive. Now that’s something to smile about šŸ™‚
