Updating bios with a thumb drive

So Ive tried the usual hardware testing( memory,harddrive, windows 7..etc) and last resort is updated Bios.

I have the orginal F4 version and would like to update to F9 version, Loaded the newest bios on a flash drive and went through Q-flash.

When prompted on the q-flash ultiltity screen it doesnt show my flash drive only floppy drive.

I know my flash drive works but how do i get it to show up?

One of the most common ways to update -- or "flash" -- the BIOS is to use a standard USB flash drive. Download the update for your BIOS from the manufacturer's website.Do not remove the USB flash drive from your computer. Press the key required by your computer to enter the BIOS, usually the F2 or another function key.Press this key immediately as your computer powers on. Change hardware listed under Primary Boot Device to your attached USB flash drive.This info is usually found in the "Important Information" section.To locate other BIOS versions you can try and find the version download by navigating through the links located at Caution: If Bit Locker is not suspended before updating the BIOS, the next time you reboot the system it will not recognize the Bit Locker key.

As far as I know, I may flash the BIOS with a USB stick. In the "How To" are only common instructions which don't help me a lot.
