Updating Your ScareMaster
Updating the Firmware
Depending on your situation the update process will be different. Please select one option from the list below.
Download the ScareMaster Combo Update.zip file. Extract the .zip file and copy the FI-XXX folders to the root of an SD card. When you open up the card to see the contents you should immediately see the FI-200, FI-SHOWS, etc. folders. They cannot be inside another folder.
My ScareMaster DOES need an SD Card AND I DO have shows in my FI-SHOWS folder I need to keep.
1. Download the ScareMaster Combo Update.zip file. Extract the .zip file and copy only the FI-200 folder to your SD card, replacing the one that currently exists.
2. Go into your FI-SHOWS folder, and then into any one of the show folders inside. If you see an AMBIENT, INPUT1, and possibly more folders, you're in the right place. Along with the folders just mentioned, there should also be a SETTINGS.BIN file. If there's not, you'll need to download it from here and copy it into ALL of your show folders.

Erase all the files on your card then refer to the first option My ScareMaster DOES NOT currently need an SD Card inserted for programming
