Hello,

The updater should take a maximum of 10 minutes. If it froze something most likely intergerd with the updater, this could be the anti-virus/firewall of your computer or any other high bandwith program you have running. Also you have to have the device connected to a USB port connected directly to the motherboard. If this doesn't work I would simply try it on another 32 bit PC and it should work just fine.

Regards,

Rylan

Can i update camera firmware through a printer dock?


Kodak does not suggest a firmware upgrade through a printer dock. Instead, they recommend using an SD card (memory card).

First:
  1. Click Download, then save the firmware file to your computer desktop.
  2. Double-click the *.exe file. When the WinZip Self-Extractor screen appears, select a folder or accept the default location, then click Unzip. The firmware file unzips to the specified folder.
  3. Note the location of the *.FW file, then close the WinZip Self-Extractor.
Instructions:
  1. If you have pictures/videos on your camera's internal memory or on the memory card, save them to your computer.
  2. Ensure that your camera batteries are fully charged.
  3. Turn off your camera.
  4. Insert the memory card into your computer or into a card reader attached to your computer.
  5. Verify that the memory card has at least 100 MB free space.
  6. On your computer, select the removable drive associated with the memory card or card reader.
  7. If a System folder does not exist on the memory card, create one. From the removable drive window, select File > New > New Folder, then name the new folder System.
  8. Copy the *.FW file from your computer into the System folder.
  9. Remove the memory card from your computer or card reader, then insert it into your camera.
  10. Turn on your camera, then follow the instructions to begin the firmware upgrade. The upgrade takes approximately two minutes to complete.
  11. When "Upgrade was successful" appears on the LCD, select Delete Upgrade File to delete the firmware file from the memory card.
  12. Turn off your camera, then turn the camera on to activate the new firmware.

La impresora 4345mfp se bloquea y nose como hacer la actualizacion del firdware.


Upgrading the firmware
The MFP has remote firmware update (RFU) capability. Use the information in this section to
upgrade the MFP firmware. The overall process involves the following steps:
1 Determine the current level of firmware that is installed on the MFP.
2 Go to the HP Web site and find out whether a firmware update is available. If an update is
available, download the latest firmware to your computer.
3 Transfer the new firmware from your computer to the MFP.
Determining the current level of firmware
To determine the current level of firmware, view the configuration information on the MFP control panel. To view the configuration information, follow these instructions.
1 Press MENU.
2 Touch INFORMATION.
3 Touch PRINT CONFIGURATION. The configuration page prints.
4 The firmware datecode is listed in the section called Device Information. The firmware
datecode has this format: YYYYMMDD XX.XXX.X. The first string of numbers is the date, where
YYYY represents the year, MM represents the month, and DD represents the date. For example, a firmware datecode of that begins with 20040225 represents February 25, 2004.
Downloading the new firmware from the HP Web site
To find the most recent firmware upgrade for the MFP, go to www.hp.com/go/lj4345mfp_software.
This page provides instructions for downloading the new firmware version.
Transferring the new firmware to the MFP
Use one of the following methods to update the firmware.
Using FTP to upgrade the firmware on a network connection
NOTE The MFP can receive an .RFU file update as long as it is in a "ready" state.
The elapsed time for an update depends on the I/O transfer time, as well as the time that it takes for the MFP to reinitialize. The I/O transfer time depends on a number of things, including the speed of the host computer that is sending the update. If the remote firmware update process is interrupted before the firmware is downloaded (while Receiving Upgrade appears on the control-panel display), the firmware file must be sent again. If power is lost during the flash DIMM update (while the Performing Upgrade message appears on the control-panel display), the update is interrupted and the message Resend Upgrade appears (in English only) on the control-panel display. In this case, you must send the upgrade by using the parallel port. Finally, any jobs that are ahead of the RFU job in the queue are completed before the update is processed.
Follow these instructions to perform the upgrade by using FTP.
To upgrade the firmware on a network connection by using FTP
1 Take note of the IP address on the HP Jetdirect page. The HP Jetdirect page is the second page that prints when you print the configuration page.
NOTE Before upgrading the firmware, make sure that the MFP is not in Sleep mode.
Also make sure that any error messages are cleared from the control-panel display.
2 Open an MS-DOS command prompt on your computer.
3 Type: ftp <TCP/IP ADDRESS>. For example, if the TCP/IP address is 192.168.0.90, type ftp
192.168.0.90.
4 Press Enter on the keyboard.
5 When prompted for the user name, press Enter.
6 When prompted for the password, press Enter.
7 Type bin at the command prompt.
8 Press Enter. The message 200 Types set to I, Using binary mode to transfer files appears in
the command window.
9 Type put <filename> where <filename> is the name of the .RFU file that was downloaded
from the Web, including the path. For example, type put C:\LJ\4345FW.RFU, and then press
Enter.
NOTE If the file name or path includes a space, you must enclose the file name or path
in quotation marks. For example, type put "C:\MY DOCUMENTS\LJ\4345FW.RFU"
The following series of messages appears in the command window:
? 200 PORT command successful
? 150 Opening BINARY mode data connection
? 226 Ready
? 226 Processing Job
? 226 Transfer complete
Then, a message that contains the transfer-speed information appears.
10 The download process begins and the firmware is updated on the MFP. This can take
approximately five minutes. Let the process finish without further interaction with the MFP or
computer.
NOTE The MFP automatically turns off and then on again after processing the upgrade.
11 At the command prompt, type: bye to exit the ftp command.
12 At the command prompt, type: exit to return to the Windows interface.

Using MS-DOS commands to upgrade the firmware
To update the firmware by using a network connection, follow these instructions.
1 From a command prompt or in an MS-DOS window, type the following: copy /B <FILENAME>
\\<COMPUTERNAME>\<SHARENAME>, where <FILENAME> is the name of the .RFU file
(including the path), <COMPUTERNAME> is the name of the computer from which the MFP is
being shared, and <SHARENAME> is the MFP share name. For example: C:\>copy /b C:
\9200fW.RFU \\YOUR_SERVER\YOUR_COMPUTER.
NOTE If the file name or path includes a space, you must enclose the file name or path
in quotation marks. For example, type: C:\>copy /b "C:\MY DOCUMENTS\3500FW.RFU" \\YOUR_SERVER\YOUR_COMPUTER.
2 Press Enter on the keyboard. The control panel shows a message that indicates the progress of the firmware upgrade. At the end of the upgrade process, the control panel shows the Ready
message . The message 1 file(s) copied appears on the computer screen.

Firmware upgrade not working


Are you absolutely sure that you loaded the firmware for your correct model #? Try downloading the auto-updater software and see if it will take the upgrade on the next go around.

If not, that player is fried - update during firmware upgrade is no good. Call rCA to see if you are still in warranty.

Usually the "50MB of space needed to operate error" is easy to fix, but also most other manufacturers have a specific FAQ on their website that tells you how to fix it. RCA did not have anything like that for this model. also, most other manf. have a recovery tool of some kind - absent on this model.

Re-run the installation CD, this will enable you to "repair" the installation by adding the missing files. The first time you connect the player, it may say "connecting" for a while, but 30 minutes, for instance, isn't normal.

Go ahead and do a firmware upgrade as well:
Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx

Player spontaneously shuts off (battery is charged!)


Hi. I recommend a firmware upgrade. You can obtain this by doing the following: 1) Connect the player to your computer with the USB cable. 2) Wait for "idle" to be displayed on the player screen. 3) Double-click the file that you downloaded from the Rio website. The update should take approximately 30 seconds to load. and here is the link for your firmware upgrade file. http://www.digitalnetworksna.com/support/rio/downloads/ce2100/RioCe2100_firmware_143.exe Good Luck
