My old X-25 M just started showing its only 8 MB when I plug it in. I tried doing the firmware update but the tool just checks the firmware version and exits. I would like to force the firmware update. Does anyone know how to use the firmware update tool such that I can manually apply a update? I hate when automatic tools don't have a manual option for power users!
