    What device are you referring to?
    If you can't copy or delete them then it is a ROM file.
    No access via usb type B.

    Buy a usb type A to do it.
    Cost about $70 USD.
    Use for ROM flashing and fixed software installation

    ROM ware is firmware. Operating system file.
    Software is program to run.
    Don't get mixed up.
    Update or upgrade of firmware can be done by sdcard.
    But special program needed.
    Similarly updating Papago and Garmin also many others.

    Flashing is changing firmware inside the ROM.
    Not for amateurs. Same as phone wares.

    Buying - you can google to find it.
    Ensure you buy the correct one for your device. 5 pins or 6 pins.

    If you are thinking - to flash chinese generic or non OEM devices.
    Don't take the risk. You flash wrongly you get a paper weight. No support.
