    If a card CAME with the Mac (meaning that you did not go out an BUY it and then install it) then this update is NOT for your Mac.

    It is for RETAIL cards, that means cards that you bought at a store and installed in your Mac yourself.

    Installed ATI Radeon ROM Updater Sept2004 on ATI 9000 Pro Mac card and my video resolution isn't always retained when coming out of sleep mode. Have to reset almost every time.

    Can this update be applied on iBook G4 800MHz?
    The iBook got a Radeon 9200, I think...

    NO.

    This update is for RETAIL cards only. That means one that you bought and installed yourself (or had someone install it for you)

    It's also a MOBILITY RADEON, not a radeon card. More importantly, it's not retail. they don't sell mobility cards in stores.

    I applied this to my Radeon 8500. I everything went fine, but my card still only has 32 MB ram.

    I thought this was going to update it?

    Are you serious?

    Do you know the difference between ROM and RAM? Look it up. You happen to have a repository of information at your fingertips. Use Google or something and educate yourself to basic somputer terms.

    wow. genius. perhaps maybe you shouldn't be using a computer if you don't know the difference between rom and ram.

    Maybe he said it in jest and the joke is on you?

    Maybe he meant his Mac is saying his 8500 card only has 32Mb Ram (ie an error that he hoped new firmware would fix) The 8500 has 64MB.

    I suspect one of 2 things:

    It either isn't an 8500

    or (more likely)

    It is splitting the available VRAM between 2 monitors or 'thinks' there is another monitor or TV attached even if their isn't or it is switched off and hence 32MB is only available to the main display. If you go into ATI Utilities there should be some option to turn that off.

    My DP 2Ghz G5 has a stock OEM ATI Radeon 9600 pro plus a retail Radeon 7000 PCI Mac Edition card. This firmware updater will update the 7000 only.

    Now It was foolish of me to use this firmware updater since nothing is broken, but I felt like trying this firmware updater anyway. Besides there is one new feature:

    Added Advanced display controls - requires ATI Displays 4.4.x

    It froze my system while appying the firmware update, but to no ill effect since the old ATI Displays tells me the Radeon 7000 firmware is at 113-85501-226, which is current according to the installer.

    The installer README warns not to allow the computer to shut down during the firware update process, but I did not expect the updater to freeze my computer itself.

    So I dodged a bullet. The Lucky angel protection policy worked!

    If you are not having any of the issues addressed in the README, then why apply this update?

    Says CLEARLY that it is for RETAIL cards only, not stock/OEM cards.
