MCSE help, app working properly?

Hi all. I used SmartPack to download the firmware for my driver. I upgraded it. The FW was downloaded to my Documents as “ML05.exe” for my HP 340i aka iHBS212. Now, I want to try and increase the rip speed using MCSE. But when I load the program, then click on load FW, and I load the “ML05.exe”, everything is grayed out. Nothing changes at all with the exception that on the top of the program it now shows the ML05.exe and that is all.

Any help? What am I doing wrong?
