Firmware update failed for me, too. I hope this gets solved, because I really would like the "bin play" option.

Ken did the firmware update failure stop your DN-60 from working?
Unless someone can come up with a solution I will have to purchase an alternative.

Hello there,
I just managed to update the firmware without problem.

Follow the instructions as shown in the manual
Copy the "DN60_v1_11_CF_upgrade.bin" file to the CF card
When that is copied to the CF card then change the name of the file to "flash.bin"
Insert the card into the DN-60 and go through the usual upgrade process.

I tried to do it with the other .bin file (DN60_U2_v1_11_ROM.bin) but it kept on failing...

I wonder why that .bin file is there???

Hope this helps

Best

Gavin

DN60_U8_v11_ROM.hex
DN60_v1_11_CF_upgrade.bin

No, the failed update does not disable the device.

The error message comes immediately upon trying to perform the update, so it actually never starts. In my opinion, it seems the DN60 doesn't recognize the file as a legitimate firmware file.

I've not yet been disappointed with my purchase of the DN60.

Gavin
In the past, didn't updates require changing the file name to "flash" without the ".bin" extension?

you need the .bin extension for it to be seen.

I had no problems upgrading so I don't see why others are.....

I agree, someone from Datavideo should chime in with an explaination

I was finally able to get the update to go through by following your steps. Thanks for the help, Gavin.
Problem is, the firmware update disables playback from the DN-60.

Old clips (prior to firmware update) wouldn't play. I formatted another card and captured new clips. The new clips would not play back, either. Both bin centric and clip centric playback modes experienced the problem. Bummer.

Fortunately, I was able to flash the firmware back to the previous rev. Datavideo doesn't include the DN60_v1_11_CF_upgrade.bin firmware on their official DN-60 support page, so that probably means it's not quite ready for primetime.

I am anxiously awaiting a final firmware that adds bin centric playback. Hopefully, soon.

I updated successufl. Which is not as instruction. I misunderstood Gavin explanation.

Here what I did:

Copy to your CF card : DN60_v1_11_CF_upgrade.bin REPLACE flash.bin
Instead of DN60_v1_11_CF_upgrade replace flash

If it helps

Ken

My old clips (prior to firmware update) played well.
bin centric and clip centric playback modes properly working for me.

I used SanDisk Extreme CF 60MB/s 32GB

Removed "Nimh-2" from battery type selection as well.

Maybe I'll give it another shot this weekend. I have Transcend 400x 32GB and a Pretec 567x 64GB cards. Neither one would work with playback. I tried NTFS and FAT32 with both. When I rolled the firmware back, playback worked.
