Samurai FW 4.0 firmware problem

Firmware update doesn't start.
Downloaded 4.0 firmware, unzipped it, copied unzipped file to a functional and freshly formatted SSD,
put SSD into Samurai, powered it up and.....update doesn't start.
Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but I can't figure out what.
I'm strictly following the update procedure.
Anyone else experiencing this?

PROBLEM SOLVED
the unzipped file was named: ATOMSAM 4.FW
it needed to be renamed as: ATOMSAM.FW
The update then worked like charm

Re: Samurai FW 4.0 firmware problem

Hi,

This happens frequently on a Mac.

After downloading, the .zip will be automagically extracted.

If a file with the same name already exists, the Mac will modify the name of the newly extracted file.

I'd recommend deleting any ATOMSAM.FW (or ATOMNJA2.FW) files prior to downloading a new firmware to avoid the file renaming confusion.

Kind regards,

Ivan Radley
