Default Need help burning firmware to a disc

So I have never had to download a new firmware to a disc since my only player is the PS3. Bought my girlfriends dad the samsung bd-p1500 and i have no idea how to make this disc. I downloaded the zip file, now what? do i just burn it as a data disc on nero? any help would be great.

Thanks!

Do you have a USB memory device attached and formatted? The easiest/quickest way to update the FW (since the player takes its sweet time dling) is to download the "USB" version, then plug your stick into your PC, and extract the .zip to the second partition on the USB stick. From here all you have to do is plug the USB stick back into your player and boot, it'll automatically find the FW UP and start the process.

once done you can just delete the file from the stick, you'll have to do that from windows if you don't want to reformat.

There's a nice sticky in the HD DVD Hardware section that outlines how to burn an iso file which I assume the zip file contains. If its not an iso file but something more like a bin file you should be able to write it directly to disc.
