I’ve just flashed mine on an XP Pro system.
Just go into explorer, right click on the floppy, select format, click on “Create an MS-Dos startup disk”, then click Start to format the disk.
If you want you could create a folder on the floppy to hold the flash stuff.
Copy MTKFLASH, the binary firmware you want (VS01.bin), and the bat file (if you have one) to the floppy e.g.
rem To WRITE the flash of a drive using MTKFLASH:
rem Where “x” is a number from 1 to 4:
rem 1: Primary master
rem 2: Primary slave
rem 3: Secondary master
rem 4: Secondary slave
MTKFLASH x W /B /M VS01.BIN
My bat file contains
MTKFLASH 3 W /B /M VS01.BIN
i.e. the LiteOn is on the Secondary master.
Reboot your machine.
You now should be at a dos prompt. Go to the folder (if you used one) and run your bat file to flash the drive.
Wait, dont panic, let it do its stuff, it takes time to go through all the banks on the drive.
When it finishes reboot and XP will say you have new hardware
