It was from the Samsung site:
And yes the newer F4's after December 2010 "should" have the newest frimware on them, but it doesn't hurt to run the flash and be sure.
I have had only 1 that actually needed the new firmware. The other 3 were already there.
This was my first attempt at using a bootable USB as well. It is really simple to do and works like a champ at upgrading the firmware. Just make sure that you only have the F4 drive that you want to flash hooked up to the computer when you do it, although they do say that you should be able to do more than one drive at a time if you want too. I just always try to do only one thing at a time just to be safe.
I'm using the F4's for my server setup as well and another venture into the unknown with that as well.
But on the bright side, I already have over 175 VHS movies converted over and on the server! Only about 150 more to go and my collection will be all digital. WooHoo.
