So, what's with this? What does it mean? What are the reprocussions?

I am mostly worried that my LaCie won't work. I've backed up all my photos on it. Should I delete the new update? If so, how? The notice I got after downloading read as follows:


"Incompatible software

Some of the software on your computer is incompatible with this version of OS X. Because this software may cause problems with your computer, it has been moved. You can delete incompatible software that was moved.

Incompatible software on your computer was moved to a folder named "Incompatible Software" on your startup disk:

LaCie USB 3.0 Driver: this version of LaCie USB 3.0 Driver is not compatible with this version of OS X."


Hope someone can help me.



Mac Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.4), It "was" 10.7.5 before the update .
