FR1SX Configuration Utility for Mac OS X and FR1SX Firmware ver 1.33

Important Notice

This software is not the device driver for FR1SX. As the device driver is already included in MacOS, you don't need to install the special driver for FR1SX. If your FR1SX is working well with SCSI devices, you don't need to install and use this Utility. But if you have come across some SCSI trouble, please try this Utility. It will provide some good solution to fix them.
This Utility is the special software to fix some compatibility issues with SCSI scanners, tape drives and old SCSI-I devices by adjusting SCSI configuration parameters of FR1SX. To pursue it, the Utility also requires to MacOS to treat FR1SX as the 'Special FireWire Device' and overrides FireWire drivers with the unique drivers for FR1SX. This means you must restore FireWire drivers after ending this Utility and restart the system to use SCSI device with FR1SX again. You must follow the instructions shown by the software carefully when using it. And then must restart the system after ending it.
Before installing, please check FR1SX serial number.

Check the serial number at the back side of the FR1SX.
If the serial number is "FR010U010xxxxx" or "FR010U011xxxxx", the ROM needs to be updated.
The FR1SX which has a serial number "FR010U012xxxxx"or later already has the new ROM data, so it does not need to flashing the ROM.

This ROM updater is different from the one included in Configuration Utility. Never use this software to update the firmware. Read the information carefully before flashing the ROM data.
