That's a difficult question. The point is that the firmware update process only has access to old USB storage drivers, so any UPD that needs more recent drivers won't work. You're looking for old and therefore small UPDs, and it's just a case of keep trying until you find one that does work.Hi what size usb stick is best?
No, that is incorrect.Is it correct that certain types of software upgrades will NOT delete my existing recordings, I think (factory reset). But in order to resolve my hard drive issues I will have to loose my recordings.
The custom firmware (see below) includes utilities to recover from disk problems non-destructively (or as little destruction as possible anyway). One such which requires urgent attention is the "continuous delete" problem - which proceeds to work its way through your recorded content, deleting it with no way to stop it (turning off and turning on doesn't help). Other symptoms include picture break-ups during HiDef playback, or even during normal live viewing, and the inability to record anything at all.
There are at least two different issues that could be referred to as either "continuous delete" or "Constant Deleting".
