But one thing that always bothers me is when I'm not running the latest firmware or OS on my devices. I'm feeling like a dolt when it comes to the firmware for this thing. I downloaded the BIN file, put it on my thumb drive, put the thumb drive in the Dreamcast and turn it on. Great so far. Then I select the firmware (from 9/5, the device is running firmware from I think August of 17? can't tell the way the date is formatted, but I think so). The Dreamcast reboots and then it mounts it like an audio disk with two tracks. Obviously that's not right. Can anybody point out what I'm doing wrong?
Its been awhile since I've updated firmware on my USB-GDrom drive. When you boot into the Menu the date should be 2017/09/05 - Sept 5th 2017.
You put the firmware in the root folder right? Basically it needs to be in the root drive then execute it then it should say its updating.
