  1. The ISO image is a bootable one. Once you write it on a CD you can boot from it, and all the code which updates the firmware is in the bootable part which is invisible in Windows (or in any other OS), unless you use a specific application like WinISO or similar. The firmware update must be done at the lowest level possible of OS (read "good ol' DOS" ), thus the necessity to have a bootable CD image.
  2. Just a suggestion: have you tried to disconnect your mouse and reconnect it, instead of rebooting? Sometimes it works with PS/2 mice.
  3. 160GB External USB Hard disk

    Not always. I stumbled upon a couple of external hard disks which were targeted for USB 2.0 only and refused to work with anything lower. It all depends from the manufacturer electronics. I even have a USB key which refuses to work if it is not directly connected to the USB port. If I use any cable, XP sees it as an USB device, but it doesn't recognize it as a disk unit. Oh, well.....

  6. Stop icons from rearranging

    You can try and use an old utility from PC-Magazine: WinTidy, which saves the position of each icon on the desktop and can rearrange them back if they move. Download it from: Download WinTidy Do not try to get it from the PC-Magazine website, as they want you to register and they ask you for money to do it ! I wonder why, given that this is an old freeware, and I can remember that once downloading it was for free.
  7. Could it be that Windows loads a copy in memory and uses THAT to access the drives? It will need a reboot, anyway. It is just an hypothesis, I'm just wondering...
