Zot,
The updated bios is available at
http://support.umax.co.uk/firmware/f107B.htm (check your local Umax site
too)
If your machine is listed (Vista - S8 is) then it can be upgraded. Latest
version appears to be V2.0: Unfortunately the upgrade is done by replacing
or reprogramming a UV erasable EPROM - NOT Flash ROM. (according to the FAQ)
so unless you have access to a cleaner and EPROM Programmer....
"firmware upgrades for non-maintenance customers cost 25 + 7.50
carriage, excluding VAT "
(I couldn't find $ details on the Umax.com site)
Regards,
Graham.
