Whats the update do? by which I mean what does it add, any features?
Makes it work.

Surely the op means installation disc then rather than "update" I was assuming it was to update the drives firmware with saying "update"
Sorry chaps the installation disk for HD support. It didn't come with the driver.....
where have you got the files that you are trying to burn ? as the links above have the proper ones.

Update the HD DVD player software
To enjoy new features for HD DVD discs as they become available, you must update the software for the Xbox 360 HD DVD Player.

You can obtain updates for your Xbox 360 HD DVD Player in the following ways:
Download the update from Xbox LIVE directly to the console.

If you connect the console to Xbox LIVE, you'll be prompted to download and install the latest software updates for the HD DVD player.
Note To receive updates from Xbox LIVE, you must have a high-speed Internet connection and a Silver or Gold Xbox LIVE membership.
To receive the latest updates, follow these steps:
Sign in to Xbox LIVE.
Put a HD DVD movie in the HD DVD player's drive, and then close the drive.
If an update is available, select the appropriate response when you're prompted to download and install the update.
Download the update from the Xbox.com Web site, and then create an update disc.

When you do this, you not only download the update from the Xbox.com Web site, but you also you create a CD or a DVD that you use to update the console. This method is an effective way to receive updates if you don't have an Internet connection at home or if you use a dial-up connection for the console. If you don't have a fast Internet connection in your home, you can download the update at another location, create a CD or a DVD, and then take the CD or DVD home to update your console.

To create an update CD or DVD, follow these steps:
Obtain the update. To do this, follow these steps:
Visit the following Xbox Web site:
http://assets.xbox.com/en-us/hardware/hddvd/$Systemupdate_Fall07.zip (http://assets.xbox.com/en-us/hardware/hddvd/$systemupdate_fall07.zip)
When the File Download dialog box appears, click Save.
Note The update is in a compressed file format.
Select the download location where you want to save the file, and then click Save.
After the download is completed, extract the file so that the Default.xex file and the System Update folder are copied to your computer.
Note Windows XP has a built-in decompressing utility. However, if you're using an earlier version of Windows, you'll need a third-party utility to open the file. If this is the case, make sure that you name the update file Default.xex. The update will not run automatically unless you use the existing file names and folder structure.
Create an update disc. To create an update disc, you must have a CD or DVD burner and a blank writeable CD or DVD. Follow these steps:
Put a blank disc in the burner.
To use the CD copying feature that is built in to Windows XP, select Open Writable CD Folder Using Windows Explorer when you are prompted, and then click OK or open the CD drive folder manually.

If you want to use a third-party CD or DVD writing software utility, follow the instructions for that utility to create a data disc that contains only the update files.
Copy the Default.xex file and the System Update folder to the CD folder. Make sure that you add these items to the root level of the disc.
Click Write these files to CD.
Follow the steps in the CD Writing Wizard.
Remove the disc from the drive.
Note Wait until the CD drive ejects the disc.
Update your console and HD DVD player.

After you create the update disc, put the disc in your Xbox 360 console drive, and then follow the instructions that appear on the screen to update the console.
Note This procedure updates the HD DVD player software and the console operating system software.
