I'd be happy with the knowledge of a Windows utility that will flash a card to 
some more recent firmware version.  It seems different vendors decide whether 
or not to make available updated firmware versions for their products and 
that's the best you can hope for...

It sounds like upgrading to the most recent firmware is a mixed bag.  It 
sounds like there are different variants for different chipsets, some older 
ones don't have compatible newer firmware revisions, and some vendors don't 
care to make updates available even when the chipset revision has a matching 
firmware revision.

Or is that is a misinterpretation of reality?  Just trying to get a handle on 
firmware update options.
