That's not software.  That's firmware, at best -- you can look at it

Hmmm, I have a CF card. Upon it are files, and in every meaningful way it is a disk. Therefor, that data is software.

Yet, CF is actually chips --- often the same chips as used to hold firmware distributed with hardware. Thus, it's all hardware.
