BIN file for Firmware??? How do I use this??

By stupidross

  1. Got a BIN file for a firmware update from this site. Just wondering how I use this. Usually I get these BIN files for BIOS updates, but I never seen one as firmware. Do I need to boot this in a floppy?? Thanks/

    you would need to put the bin firmware on a bootable floppy to flash the drive. if this is not a offical firmware you run the risk of kiling your drive. most manufacturer's now have firmware updates that operate thru windows.
