found nothing.
Where I can find I want ?
We don't release any firmwares.
Because the product has been already optimized with its own
configurations.
IDE (PATA & SATA) drive does not need any drivers. You just have
to make a partition and format your drive for using.
Please make sure whether you had partitioned and formatted.
First of all, you must partition and format for recognizing the new
drive in the Windows Explorer.
Within Win98 series, please use the Fdisk.
Within Win2000 & Win-XP, please use the Disk Management.
When installing Win2000 or Win-XP, the installation process
includes the partitioning step itself.
To open the Disk Management
1 Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
2 Double-click Administrative Tools, and then double-click
Computer Management.
3 In the left panel, expand Storage, and then expand Disk
Management.
