I would agree with Steve R Jones, if you are not having issues with the optical, no update is necessary.
What many users do not realize, blank media constantly changes. This is very common in blank DVD media. As manufactures change dyes and or speeds (coded to the disk, tells the optical max burning speed) DVD burners require frequent review of firmware to address new blank media. Since you do not have any problems, NOT burning DVD's, I would leave it alone.
For future reference if any of the following conditions arise, you may need to update the firmware.
