Should I install it?

I don't know that I really need this tool.  Will some one tell me if it is worth having.  I see some problems here on this forum.  I like the Sandisk Drives but if the software is not good then I don't need it.  I think I can find all the performance info I need elsewhere.

 

Thanks

its the only way to get any FW update. If you are up to date on the FW you dont really need it.

How would I know the firmware version without the Dashboard?  Does Microsoft also provide firmware for a device like this?

 

Thanks

No, only Sandisk Provides the firmware for this device!

And Yes you Should install it!

Thanks, I think this all answers my question now.  Don't know who to give the "Solution" to here?  It was a joint effort between McHunter and drlucky.

And how can he see if his firmware is uptodate without the Tool?
