Assume you're upgrading to 1.0d (seems to be the latest from June 2000) so follow the instructions in the README. If using an earlier upgrade, the instructions may vary so best to check first.

"Changes from the Previous Version

DO NOT USE OTHER UPGRADE UTILITY PROGRAMS TO INSTALL THIS FIRMWARE.

DO NOT USE THIS UTILITY PROGRAM FOR OTHER DEVICES OR OTHER VERSIONS OF THE FIRMWARE.

What's New in 1.0d (updated: June 23, 2000):

Add support for reading High-Speed CD-RW disc (New standard for CD-RW disc). No support for writing, re-writing and erasing the disc.

Add support for reading some copy-protected CD-ROM discs.

The problem fixed with Retrospect from Dantz where an error occurs during recording on slower Macintosh and Windows models.

What's New in 1.0c (updated: September 15, 1999):

Problem fixed where:Continuous playback of files such as video file on CRW6416 connected to SCSI card equipped with beige G3 Mac suddenly stops and the system hangs up.

Problem fixed where:Using REX-PCI32/REX-PCI33 SCSI card of Ratoc Systems Inc., formatting a RW disc by Direct CD ends in failure or host system may get system reset during copying files to a CD-RW disc. These problems appear only when PC and CRW6416 powered up with a RW disc inside the drive."
