PDW-700 update to 1.1

Hi,

I found the new firmwareversion on the Sony-HP for download, and also a short manual about the update. But this short description refers to the maintenance-manual of the camera. I only know I can use a USB-Stick or the Network. But I do not know how to perform the update exactly.

Do you have any Ideas? How did you update your firmware? Is it the same procedure like in the 3xx-series?

best regards!

Update of PDW-700

Hi Robert,
I already update our PDW-700 following these instructions (you can find them on http://www.dmclive.net/:

How to update Your PDW 700
The data is placed in the root directory of a standard USB Memory key.

No special directory structure required - unlike PDW-510/530 etc.

Plug key into the USB slot on the camera handle.
How to update Your PDW 700
Top Menu > Diagnosis > Page D03 Rom Version 1

Hold in the rotary encoder button until upgrade option appears - Message
"Searching Package File" will be displayed.

Note: If message does not appear, exit and re-enter page and hold down
button again (accidental pressing of button will inhibit operation).

When Package V1.10 is found - confirm and then upgrade will start.

Upgrade takes approx 20mins.


V1.10 gives the addition of 25PsF option only.


Thanks to,
Clive

It is easy and it rally takes aprox 20 minutes.
