Having BIG problems updating to the new Sharp Rom through WinXP...

I can't find any mention of the particular problem I'm having. The SL series (WDM) driver installs AOK, but the second driver doesn't install at all (XP tells me that my new hardware is ready to use after the first wizard).

I can transfer files back and forth through Zaurus File transfer and can sync with Outlook (sort of) through the sync options, but when I run 'Update Rom' from the CD-v313(win upgrade), it gives me a 'FlashRom Update' (unable to connect to the Zaurus).

I've followed the recipe exactly and am well confused about now...

The FAQ at My Zaurus says

"3) Go to Start-control panel-Network Connections. Verify that there is a LAN CONNETION and that it is ‘enabled’ for SL SERIES NDIS 5

4) Right click on the SL SERIES NDIS 5 and go to Properties. Under the Advanced Tab ensure that Firewall setting is disabled."

Nobody, however, has anything to say on what you should do if the LAN connection doesn't exist (I'm assuming that this is my issue. I really don't know enough to say).

The only driver I have installed is my ethernet adapter (SIS 900-Based PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter).

Could someone clever please - in very small words - tell me what to do to update the ROM? (small words and an itiemized aproach are good... I'm on the 'new' end of the newb scale).

Thanks... smile.gif
