The normal things to check:
1) you must extract the .bin file from either the .zip or the windows .exe
2) you must place the .bin in the root of your SD card, not in any folder

If you did those, maybe double check you have the correct firmware or re-download.

The file name should be fwdc225b.bin

There is a problem with how you are doing the extraction. Before you try again, you might want to confirm the installed version. It may be that your previous attempt did work.
