Kingston SSDNow V300 120G f/w update

Hi All
New to all this SSD stuff. Can anyone tell me if I can update the f/w on my drive from Windows whilst that drive is running the OS?

Kingston uses a 'Field Updater', check their site...

I have downloaded the appropriate tool and update from the site by putting in the model number which led to me to a package with "Tool box". Field updater appears to be for part no.s beginning SH whereas mine is SV ie SV300S37A120G.

I should have given the part no. in original post.

Any attempt to carry out the update has been met with total system freeze.
