· Can I use a USB-to-serial converter dongle with the player?
(Entry last updated on January 3rd, 2009)
If you are trying to perform a software upgrade on the player by using a USB-to-serial converter plug on your PC, and the upgrade is failing, you might be out of luck. These are kind of hit-and-miss, depending on which one you've bought and which driver they're using. If you have a failed upgrade while using one of these things, just stop trying and go find a friend with a PC that's got a genuine serial port.
