Man, I am so frustrated trying to update the software on my PWD Mk II. Is it absolutely necessary to use a 2GB card? Nobody sells 2 GB cards anymore except over the internet, and the prices with shipping are a complete ripoff (apparently various devices such as the Wi game console and maybe some cameras will only use a 2GB card so the vendors charge much more for 2GB cards than larger GB cards because they have people over a barrel ). Then if you can’t get the unzipped software to download to the card, you have to figure out whether it is the card or the reader/writer. So you either have to buy another reader/writer or order another 2GB card over the internet and wait a week for the new card to be shipped to you to see if that works.
I would like to try a 4GB card from the local Best Buy and pick up one of their reader/writers to see if I can get the software to download. Again, will a 4 GB card work?
Also, what is the latest software for the PWD? It looks like there is a 2.4.6 in the downloads, but I haven’t seen any discussion of it on the forum.
It is extremely frustrating that such an awesome piece of audio equipment requires such a painstaking effort to update the firmware (or else you have to send the unit back to PS Audio for an upgrade). Sorry for the rant, but I’m ready to pull my hair out after working on this for an hour and a half.
