Important Information

The executable will extract files needed to flash the drive in a DOS environment. These files need to be copied to a bootable DOS Floppy diskette or bootable DOS Memory Key. The executable does not create MS-DOS system files. This flash will update the drive's firmware to B104. You must remove the bootable Floppy diskette or bootable Memory Key and power cycle the system before using the drive.

If the firmware re-flash fails (e.g., system hangs, etc.), power cycle the system and try again.
