Mine came pre-loaded Cheef, so will have to have a look and see what the loading procedures are.

Looks like all you do is load the flash file and the first Eeprom file onto the card, start the programming then when the CAM prompts for the second file, put that onto the card and insert again. There are instructions with the file.

What I would add though and this is for everyone, if all you do is look for the cheapest deal, you will often be disappointed with the product and subsequent service. If you'd have bought the MR from somewhere like Toecutters, not only would the unit have arrived ready for use (preloaded) and have the benefit of ongoing almost instant support, but also you would have been supporting the development of the new software.

I'm afraid that you cannot treat any of these type of products as any other product, they demand a certain amount of user knowledge and very often are supplied in their raw state, with no capabilities, this is the reason why I suggested in an earlier thread that people buy from somewhere like Toecutters.

Go to the Sticky thread at the top of this forum, click on the lefdata CI link and then navigate down to Matrix Reloaded, there are files there and complete (and quite detailed) instructions.

Alternatively you can also download the file from Toecutters which once loaded willl need no further keys etc.

Hi everyone, I have read the articles but found no direct information for my problem :( !
I have a Matrix Reloaded Cam, which for some time I have been upgrading with new firmware via the Laptop procedure. My problem is that I have upgraded the cam with a renamed, Matrix Revolution firmware (MRrev 2.00) :-doh!.
My actual problem is that I can't revert back to an appropriate MR firmware:confused . The laptop software comes back with an error with cam and asks to re-insert cam (which I have tried for a number of times with no luck).
Is it possible to re-format the cam to its original state with a laptop's PCMCIA or would I need the cas interface?

One last thing is to ask if there is any other software for upgrading via laptop apart from the UCAS loader V1.3? If not, where can I get the technical information needed to progam one myself (with Visual Basic preferably)?

Thanks for reading my long questions and for all those posting the previous replies I have read!

My understanding of this problem is that you will need a Cas interface.
