Identifying the firmware in your Apple Mac
This is Duncan Clarke from Retrodata posting this. I've been inundated with requests on how to identify the firmware revision of the hard drive without stripping the computer down.
You can easily identify the firmware revision with Mac OS X.
First go to "About this mac" and then click on "more info"
Then select Serial-ATA.
The firmware is shown as "Revision"
If it's 7.01, I suggest you backup and replace immediately.
