Once started, the software will show you a simple and straightforward interface.
Start your drive in Bootloader mode (Click here for DigiDRIVE Portable or here for DigiDRIVE Basic) and connect it to the PC / MAC with a standard mini-USB cable.
After connected and recognized by the OS, the program will enter in console mode searching for connected peripherals. In the case no peripherals are available or no peripherals are in bootloader mode, the program will inform you with a simple message.
In the case the drive connected is in bootloader mode, the program will show you a list of all the peripherals ready to be flashed. The firmware version is reported, too.
Clicking on Browse button, the user can select a valid DDX file for the drive/peripheral connected. If a DDX file designed for another product is used, the program will output an error message.
|ATTENTION: Firmware upload is a very critical process. Make sure the battery of the drive is fully charged before starting an upgrade. Don't disconnect or power off the drive during flashing process.|
Once clicked on Install and chose Proceed on the following window, the program will erase the entire flash memory of the drive starting the flashing procedure automatically.
If the firmware selected requires a special bootloader in order to be flashed, a warning error will be raised informing which version of bootloader is really required.
In the case of "Bootloader Version Mismatch", just download the right bootloader and install it as a normal firmware. If everything is ok, the procedure will prompt an information box before proceeding with flashing.
Once finished, it is mandatory to shut down the drive even if you need to re-flash the unit with another firmware or if you installed a new bootloader.
In this case of a new bootloader, refer to this section for further information about it.
