Thread Starter 
Hello.
first of all i own samsung 840 pro series 256gb so today i installed the Samsung Magician i opened it and it was saying a new firmware is available for my ssd(currently installed firmware is DXM04B0Q)so when i clicked the update button it was saying "failed to update firmware on the selected drive"i also tried to run the app as an administrator.so when it didn't work i tried to download the firmware manually and flash via bios so what i did is took my 4gb usb burned the iso on it from here http://www.samsung.com/global/business/semiconductor/samsungssd/downloads.html so i rebooted and when i try to load the usb it says "Remove disks or other media"i tried to change the usb to fat32,and ntfs both didn't work....i really don't know what to do...help will be appreciated.

You are supposed to boot from the USB drive, it is a DOS bootable drive now, or was, I would create it again just as FAT32.

Once created, restart into the BIOS, select it as the boot device, save and exit, and it should boot up and allow you to choose the firmware update feature, among others. I suggest reading the instructions in the help documentation in the Magician software so you are familiar with the procedure.
