When I try to run the firmware updater on my X-25V (in an Acer netbook, SATA set to AHCI) I get an error message that starts something like:
[PMODE/W] Abort: 00
followed by some more cryptic stuff. It just fails completely. Am I doing something wrong?
I'm running the updater tool from a USB stick as I don't have access to a cd drive for my netbook.
I wasnt aware that there was any real firmware update for the X25-v but...if there is...there should be no prob doing it by way of USB as I also have an Acer it I do everything by USB. Make sure of course your bios is recognizing the USB as its primary boot though.
The download page for the firmware does specify that it supports the X-25V 40GB model.
I have it set to boot from USB, and FreeDOS boots just fine - when I try to run the updater get the odd errors. It doesn't get to the stage of asking me any questions or anything - just fails with the cryptic errors.
It was still giving me errors, but I've just tried to run it 3 times in a row and the third time it worked for some reason. Sorry if I've wasted peoples' time and thanks for the help. The new firmware seems to be working fine now.
