JMicron is a company that specializes in storage solutions, such as USB to SATA, USB to PCIe, USB to UFS, PCIe to SATA, SATA to SATA, and SATA to PATA bridge controllers. These controllers enable you to connect various types of storage devices to your computer or laptop via USB or PCIe ports.
However, sometimes you may encounter issues with your JMicron devices, such as poor performance, compatibility problems, or errors. In that case, you may need to update your JMicron firmware to the latest version. Firmware is a software program that controls the hardware functions of your device. Updating your firmware can improve your device's stability, functionality, and security.
But how do you update your JMicron firmware Here are the steps you need to follow:
First, you need to identify the model and version of your JMicron device. You can do this by checking the label on the device itself, or by using a tool like Device Manager on Windows or System Information on Mac.
Next, you need to visit the JMicron website and go to the Download section. There you can find all the available firmware updates for different JMicron devices. You can search by category or by keyword. For example, if you want to update your USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 to x2 PCIe NVMe/AHCI Gen3 x2 Bridge Controller, you can type \"JMS586U\" in the search box and find the corresponding firmware update file.
Then, you need to download the firmware update file and save it on your computer. The file may be in ZIP or RAR format, so you may need to extract it using a tool like WinZip or WinRAR.
After that, you need to prepare a bootable media such as a CD-R or a USB drive using third-party tools. You can use tools like Rufus or Etcher to create a bootable media from an ISO image file. The ISO image file contains the firmware update program that will run when you boot your computer from the bootable media.
Finally, you need to insert the bootable media into your computer and restart it. Make sure you change the boot order in your BIOS settings so that your computer boots from the bootable media first. The firmware update program will automatically detect your JMicron device and perform the update process. You may need to follow some instructions on the screen or press some keys during the process. Do not turn off your computer or disconnect your device until the update is completed.
