I have looked myself & the only Firmware I have found for a WD Raptor is on the HP website.
It is for the 36GB one and it is old 2004. I wish WD would let us update our FW because
I have 2 newer model raptors and one older one, I would like
them all to match.

Your best bet would be to contact WD and request a firmware update for your drive.

Cheers
