That looks to be specific to converting a FreeBSD installer CD to memory
stick... which of course is not needed any more.
The implications of trying to custom build an SSD firmware update image
from a CD could be big, and it's really not something to experiment with
unless you feel lucky.

aren't you supporting your users with a memory stick firmware update?
Many people no longer have CD drives."
Practically speaking, that is not likely to result in a quick result, or
possibly any result. So use a program they recommend, or use an
external CD drive to update the firmware.
