No need to be condescending. The rules on the screen in front of my while I type this say “Constructive criticism is welcome, but criticize ideas , not people.” You’re saying I can’t follow simple steps, which is violating this very guideline.
I’ve followed the directions for creating a FreeDos bootable USB. And I’ve read the firmware and made a backup. But I have a concern with flashing it using this method, because the dosflash program on FreeDos seems pretty flaky. So I’m not confident that using it to flash will work - worried about bricking the device.
I also own Win7 and have the disc. I used it (in conjunction with WinToUsb) to create so-called bootable USB, but it didn’t work satisfactorily for me. (WinToUsb warned me that it would be too slow to boot from, but I created the bootable media anyway, and then I tried to boot from it but it was painfully slow. I think I waited an hour for it to boot, then gave up.)
So, this has nothing with me not being able to follow directions. There are many other links in the source material that are broken, all of the discussion links it links to on makemkv.com are also not working.
A doc or tutorial with updated links to everything would be helpful, no? If you have something to add, doing so in a civil manner without personal attacks would be greatly appreciated.
