    After a day of searching with Google and trying a lot, am I unable to make a usb flash drive bootable with an iso provided by Samsung. (Only 3 MB) in order to upgrade the firmware of my 256 GB EVO Samsung SSD.
    The Windows people play it easy, they can update their firmware with a Samsung Windows program. For OS X you have to make a usb flash drive with Samsung's .iso file.

    But how to do? I did three months ago, the very first firmware upgrade I found on a link which I cannot find again. It was 2 or 3 lines commands in a terminal window, I thought.

    Who can help me out?
