Hi - I just had Medion email me a BIN file on request that has the latest BIOS update from my device.
How do I use this to update my BIOS? I have moved it to a USB flashdrive however when I access my BIOS I have difficulty finding an option that lets me update from a USB flashdrive.
Advice would be appreciated.

Just to update, Medion apparently don't know how to use the BIN file to update the BIOS nor can they provide an EXE file.
They have signposted me to asking on a forum, as they do not appear to know ...

Hi @HaarisQureshi ,
a BIN file is an ancient image file. It is the old time equivalent to the ISO file that we use nowadays.
Unfortunately you can't open it directly, you will need either to burn it to a disc or to mount it to a virtual drive.
Please find instructions on how to do so using this link here
Be aware that any procedure to update/flash the BIOS should be performed at your own risk, therefore Medion can't accept any responsibility on the outcome of your try.

@Gehringer Neither using WinCDEmu or MagicISO to convert it to an ISO worked - they both gave error messages - it seems no software considers the BIN file I was sent to be an actual CD image and therefore will neither mount it nor convert it.
I will also add the emails have also advised me to try and use the BIN file within Device Manager - but going to the update wizard and selecting the folder the BIN file is in doesn't do anything (it does not detect a later version).
