Re: What is firmware
The firmware would be for your drive since firmware is the hardware updates, and if it was real firmware, it would mean a program on the ROM chip to define what the hardware is,.
rather than software which would be a piece of software.
So it must mean something to do with storing the drives firmware if you've updated it before in the form of a windows driver, just incase your computer were to go bust.
But your drive would have its old firmware on a driver cd or something to know what it is in the first place to make it possible to use it.
So I wouldn't know why it should be coming up with that error in that case, but i wouldn't worry
