Upgrade firmware of SanDisk SanDisk Ultra II 960GB on a Mac, how?

I buy'd a  SanDisk SanDisk Ultra II 960GB
ATA Version: ACS-2 T13/2015-D revision 3
Firmware Version: X41100RL

 

Ist this firmware the latest?

How could I update the firmware on a mac?

 

I run Windows only in VMware Fusion and have installed Crossover (Wine) too.

 

My Mac: MBP late 2008 15"  / macOS El Capitan

Its nice that no one ever replies to these requests.  So frustrating.  I need to update mine as well.  A few hundred of them to run them in camera systems for a production I am working on.  NO help at all.

SanDisk support seems frustrating.

 

But I use my SanDisk SSD in my MacBookPro now about 1500 hours without problems.

I hat TRIM turned on too.

 

I use DriveDX, to monitor the S.M.A.R.T. status too.

Yup, I'm in this boat too.

 

Can't even find a way to work out what the latest firmware is for my drive without having to use a completly different operating system.

 

Oh and where can I find manual firmware updates for drives.

 

Sheesh.

Now my SanDisk Ultra II SSD 960 GB works well about 4.900 hours - an with firmware X41100R.

 

The only thing that bothers me is that no one from SanDisk is coming up on the subject!
