Flashpack Help

Hi all!
 
Having tinkered with the old Psions for a while now (I seem to be working backwards, having started at the S7 end!) I've run into a problem that hopefully someone can help with...
 
Today I got my first flashpack - which would be great except it doesn't seem to have the flashpack driver on it so there is no way for me to actually use the thing!
 
On the plus side, I do have a comms link and managed to scrape together a working set of rather outdated utils (old versions of BLDPACK and MAKE etc).
 
Extensive searching online (and even back into the wayback machine just in case) didn't give any results for the flashpack driver, and from what I've gathered it looks like I need to find somewhere:
 
 * A copy of the flashpack driver or a pack image containing it
 
If anyone has one and could possibly upload it somewhere or email it to me ( tommyk87@virginmedia.com ), that would be perfect.
 
Additionally, if anyone has an up to date (more so than version 2.0) dev tools package (or even just MAKE.EXE) that would also make life a *lot* easier - but if not I think I can get round it by writing the driver/image to a datapack and using that to load the driver and format the flash?

As it so happens, I have a copy of the flashpack driver in my psion folder. I've uploaded it to dropbox for you to download.
 
Hopefully it will help you, it contains an image of the flash formatter pack, make.exe and the flash driver v1.8 and v1.9.

Thanks Sora, you're a star!
 
Although for some reason the included MAKE v3.00 kept giving me an "Unknown Error: 2" when attempting to write the image, my old v2.2 version of MAKE wrote it to a rampack without issue and the flashpack is formatting as I type!
