Hi, whilst this is of no help with your problem I have a very similar issue with trying to update the software, mine has lost various channels and I was hoping to resolve with new software, when installing the s/w via usb stick it reads it then when you press ok says file is invalid??? hoping for some answers via this site

Kind regards
Richard

I had similar probs - you need to be updating to loader version 1.5 (last file on Fortec's download page) - is that what you are trying?

Anyway, the only USB device I got to work was a 16M (yes Meg) card in a USB holder, which is too small to format FAT32, so just FAT.

Anyway that was sufficient capacity to hald the new software, and I used it to upgrade sequentially through each driver revision up to December 2009, then did a Factory Reset, now everything (including my Verbatim 320G disc (which previously failed) now works fine.

Remaining problem is, that the User Interface has changed (more menu options etc), but there does not seem to be a new verion of the manual.

I don't know how you personally go about the download but I do not use the settings on the menu.I just switch the machine off at the front insert usb stick.switch back on the file is read then I press OK and off it goes,I haven't had a problem using this method
