DESFire EV1-- UpdateBinary / File or application not find

I am trying to write 4 bytes (and then potentially 246 bytes) to the Mifare DESFire EV1 Reference Card using the ISO 7816-4 Update Binary command.


Attached is SpringCard Scriptor screenshot which is connected to a Prox’N’Roll (USB PCSC Coupler) that has the DESFire EV1 Reference Card loaded.

FFFE0000 07 00 A4 00 0C 02 E1 01

FFFE0000 09 00 D6 00 08 04 FF FF FF FF


I encapsulate the “System File Select” command and then “UpdateBinary”

I get success (SW = 90 00) with “System File Select” command

I get SW = 6A 82 (before 90 00) for the “UpdateBinary”, which indicates “File or application not find”.


Do I need to first format the DESFire EV1 or is there another step?


Also is there an ISO chaining mechanism to send long APDUs (> 64 Bytes)?
