I recently went though a major overhaul of my PWD MKII, and I upgraded it to DirectStream DAC with the kit. After the upgrade, I installed the SD card, firmware loaded OK, everything was nice.
A couple of days ago, I received the Bridge II card I purchased, installed it, loaded the provided firmware, again everything was nice and working, streamlined interface, fast and responsive, everything was fine until this morning.
Do you ever have foolish ideas? Well, I did. I checked on the PSAudio website for updated firmware and there was a post that caught my attention: PWD Bridge II fix. After decades working with Microsoft, the word “fix” throws me into panic mode, so without further ado I downloaded and installed it.
Gone the nice interface and the features of the latest firmwares, all I get now is the old style interface of my old PWD DAC. I tried to re-install the firmware cards that came with the DSD kit (Yale, 12-061-99-1) and the Bridge (12-061-99-2), but they won’t load any longer.
So the question is: how do I force the DSD and the Bridge to load the original firmware they came with? Alternatively, how do I reset DSD and Bridge II to factory settings?
Any help would be appreciated
