c200 version1 Latest Firmware Installation Instructions; 01.01.07

[ Edited ]

Version 1 Players Only


First, be sure to verify that your player is a c200v1. This can be found by going over to Settings > Info, and verify that "Version" starts with V01.

 

Once this has been verified, go ahead and proceed with the firmware update steps below.

 

WARNING: If you do not have a v1, do NOT upgrade your firmware to this a different version! This could render your player useless!

 

Download the firmwares by clicking on the links below. Be sure to select the region you are in for full compatibility.

 

--------------

AMERICAS & PACIFIC REGION - 01.01.07 for Americas

EUROPE (No FM) - 01.01.07e for Europe without FM

EUROPE (FM) - 01.01.07f for Europe with FM

-----------------

 

This is for use in Recovery Mode.


To access Recovery Mode:
-Make sure the player is off (if necessary, hold down the power button for 20 seconds to turn it off)
-Move the hold switch to ON (move to the right towards the record button).
-Hold the record button.
-Connect the player to the computer.
-Keep holding the record button till the "new hardware is ready for use" comes up, then realease the record button.

Now you should have a 16MB drive in My Computer.  Simply download the 3 attached files, then put them onto the 16MB drive (via drag-and-drop, or copy-and-paste).

Once that's done, turn off the hold switch, then unplug the player.  Check if the firmware is now updated.

HELP! I downloaded and extracted the files ok but cannot get the device to go into recovery mode. I follow steps as provided. I copied files under system folder but still my c240 device freezes. I have tried formatting and a whole lot more.

Sorry, dumb question coming your way. I just struggled to get the firmware that shows USB Mode on my player - so I don't want to screw anything up.  Your firmware update show 01.01.00

My player says 01.00.03A

Do I need to update or change anything?

Thanks

I'm still missing the information about what is updated in the new firmware. I mean, what it has got that the previous one hasn't. So that I could know if I need to update it.

Unfortunately, release notes are not available for every player. I will do what I can to try to reach out to the appropriate parties, but I do not forsee being able to obtain them. Bear with me.

Hey, I just got something that can work as a webcam, and I've finally got 'round to installing Skype, so if you are similarly equipped, send me an PM or email and we'll arrange a video conference during which I'll watch you do the upgrade, and see if I spot any errors along the way.
