You can go to this forum and look in the firmware thread:

http://www.minixforums.com/threads/official-firmware.2/Minix%20Forum

There are beta drivers for Windows 8 and there are drivers for earlier operating systems included with the 4.1.1 Rar file.

I had quite a bit of trouble getting the G4 drivers to install. Here are a couple of hints.
- Even if you have an Intel processor, you want to install the driver from the AMD64 folder if you are running a 64 bit operating system. The x86 folder has a 32-bit driver for 32 bit operating systems.

- If you get a bad or wrong driver installed, go into the Control Panel Device Manager and delete it before installing a different one.

- My Dell Laptop has both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports. The 3.0 ports are suppossed to be backwards compatible. But I could not get the drivers to install properly with my Neo G4 hooked to a USB 3.0 port. I was just about to give up altogether when it occurred to me to try a different port and they suddenly installed flawlessly.

Hope that helps.
