GO to USB, set Card Protect=Off

Then start up USB Device Mode

The Fostex will come up as an external drive. Copy the .MOT file over to the root directory (where all the folders for your songs are).

Using Windoze' Safely Remove, (or Mac's Eject) disconnect the Fostex from the computer.

Disconnect the MR-8 from the USB cord.

Now hold down the STOP key and press Enter at the same time. This will cause a new option, the Service Menu, to appear. Click Enter, scroll on down to Version Up. Hit Enter again, and you'll see your file (MR8MV105.MOT in my case). Click Enter again, and it will ask you to confirm. Follow the instructions; press both RECORD and ENTER at the same time to continue.

Then you'll see File Loading, then Flash ROM erasing, then Flash ROM writing, then Completed, please hit STOP key. Then turn it off at the switch, and back on.

Assuming all went well, when you hold down the STOP and press ENTER, the Service Mode will come up again. Press ENTER, then press ENTER again (for Version) and confirm.

Enjoy!

How can i update a firmware on lg bd player


go to the website site and see if a newer firmware is available for your player.If your player cannot connect to the internet you will be instructed to burn the utility file along with the updated firmware file from your computer.The instructions should be included at the web site.When you burn the disc you then load the disc into your player and it will update it .If your player can connect to the internet then run a line from your router or hub to the player select from the menu list on your player that should say update firmware.It will automatically log on to lg and download a newer version of the firmware.If you have the newest it will tell you no newer version available.Hope that helps

Before removing the used print head, be sure to update the printer?s firmware version with the included CD-ROM. An error message will be displayed on the printer?s display when the new print head is installed without updating the version. In this case, re-install the used print head and update the firmware version.

Updating the firmware

1. Turn on the power of the printer. Check that the printer is online.

2. Run the file setup.exe in the FirmUpdate folder in the CD-ROM. [GARO Firmware Update Tool] will be installed.

3. Run [GARO Firmware Update Tool] from Programs in the Start menu.

4. By following the instructions, update the firmware version.



1. Turn on the power of the printer. Check that the printer is online.

2. Select the OS89 folder in the FirmUpdate folder in the CD-ROM, and run [GARO FirmUpdate]. [GARO Firmware Update Tool] will be installed.

3. Run [GARO Firmware Update Tool] from [Applications] - [GARO Firmware Update Tool] folder.

4. By following the instructions, update the firmware version.

Phantom power on my Fostex MR-8 MKII


I had the same problem. Your recorder may need a software upgrade. Go to the following link and upload the "Product Support Bulletin." Follow all the steps. You will need to go to the Fostex web page for the update. My phantom power has worked since I did this.

Hope it helps.

Firmware upgrade


What version do you have now?

Here is the newest version posted on SharpNet:

Version H2.40 contains the following modifications: 1. H5-01 error detection changed from 3 successive errors to 5. (POD1) 2. “H3” errors eliminated when ICU detects E7-00 error.(PCU processing change) 3. Image rotate information retained during paper-out condition by specifying use of manual feed tray. 4. If L3-00 or L1-00 errors occur after upgrade, TC 26-59 settings must be changed. Refer to technical bulletin AR-337-001 R for instructions. AR507.EXE Contains all the files needed to upgrade the AR287/AR337 copiers using a PC, SCSI adapter, and 7 series Black & White Imager. (AR287 ~ AR507) Refer to Technical Bulletin AR-505-001. AR507.EXE contains the following files – ICU_H2_40.mot, ICU_H2_40.fd, PCU_H2_40.mot, PCU_H2_40.fd, OPE_H2_40.mot, OPE_H2_40.fd, and Flash5.1.exe

The firmware upgrade on these "toner bombs" is no walk in the park but I can walk you through it and provide the bin files and software. contact me at double-u double-udouble-u dot brianbell dot net for more information.
