some important entries in the changelog:
"Release Date: 8/24/2011. Firmware for the RealSSD C400 is being updated from version 0002 to 0009. The C400 is updatable to this new firmware starting from either version 0001 or 0002 in a single step. If updating from version 0001 to 0009, the version 0002 improvements will also be included (please see Release Notes for version 0002 for details). Changes for version 0009 include the following: • Improved read throughput performance. • Increase in PCMark Vantage benchmark score, resulting in improved user experience in most operating systems. • Improved write latency for better performance under heavy write workloads. • Faster boot up times. • Improved compatibility with latest chipsets. • Compensation for SATA speed negotiation issues between some SATA-II chipsets and the SATA-III device. • Improvement for intermittent failures in cold boot up related to some specific host systems. This firmware update is recommended but not required for drives in the field. The performance improvements are desirable, but not required for satisfactory performance in most computing environments. If the end user is currently experiencing compatibility issues with the C400 and a specific host system, then this update may provide resolution to such issues. "

Micron C400 firmware is here: https://www.micron.com/products/solid-state-storage/legacy-ssds/c400-ssd/c400-software
0009 and older have a critical bug so you certainly don't want that version. If you are on an older version (0002 or whatever), you can just install any newer one. You don't have go through them in turn so there should be no need for you to find 0009. 0309 was the first version to fix the bug.
