My Ride: has an iron lung

EDIT:
Nevermind, I was trying to do it through the front USB instead of the rear DVD USB. My bad!

Has anybody had any trouble updating the firmware? Here's what I've done:
I reformat the USB stick to FAT
Put the first file (zh_mcu.bin) in the (now empty) USB stick
Hold left knob on Dynavin until screen goes black
Plug in USB stick and wait

The unit then says it's reading the USB stick, switches to the USB screen, then comes up with:
"
STOP
NO SUPPORT FILE
"
and reverts to the blue Dynavin boot screen.

The same thing happens with the other file.

Totaled my unit?

Hi!
I downloaded this update, to update my dynavin E39 V5. I had running with an old 12 V transformator, because my car was at the workshop. But when I pluged in the usb-stick to update my unit, I got a powerloose. And no my unit is complete dead, whatever I do it is just dead, black screen, no sound, no background lights. Have I completed ****ed it up? Or is it any hope??

Let's hope it's just your old 12v transformer that kicked the bucket.

Yeah

That was my hope too, so when I got my car back, I installed the dynavin, but still just the same. All dead, does anybody knows if this is a "known" problem? Or am I the first idiot??

Not to thread jack but I am interested in the DVN v5. I also saw a CD changer for sale... so does the DVN v5 work with the BMW 6 disk CD changer?

Thanks!

No, you'll lose the use of the CD changer with the Dynavin

Sounds like the bench power was a tad high.

Does this new update fix the problem when you are listening to Bluetooth Music and as soon as you switch to Navi, the Audio switches to the radio? That is the most frustrating thing about my dynavin right now.

I just updated my firmware.

I lost the ability to seek through tracks fwd or back when I'm in NAV mode now using my ipod or CD as a music source. If the source is radio, the seek button will work while in NAV mode. I'm not liking the new firmware and regret doing it. Is there anyway to go backwards?

Unfortunately that's how it is with that firmware, perhaps check with your supplier if they have a copy of the original firmware so you could flash it back.

Thanks.

When I read through the thread, I found the link as well. Now everytime I get a blue DVD menu when I play CD's and the controls still don't work while in NAV mode still. I'll have to ask Jeff if he can obtain the original firmware. I have since updated to the most current firmware. If I can't get the original firmware, I guess I'll have to live with it until Dynavin releases a fix.

I've already posted a download link for the original firmware in my previous post

Oh OK just read your post in the Dynavin Free Forum, so you're saying that firmware is different to the one that came with your unit?
Perhaps douible check and make sure you flashed it back properly

I've been in touch with Jeff via email about this as well. Hopefully we can get this worked out!!

Just to let people know, this appears to affect the function of the controls for USB as well.

BTW, more props to Jeff. He is teh zomg awesomeness as far as customer service is concerned.

Can you guys tell me the latest firmware file names? I did an update late last year, but steering controls still don't work with iPod interface, so I'm guessing I don't have the latest files.

Whats the title of the latest update and how big should it be? I have zh_mcu.bin 96KB. I was looking for the March update and wonder why it wont take this one?
I put the file on a formatted 32 thumb drive and then the Dynavin turns on but reads no file.
Thanks

Hey all, the Dynavin unit I purchased from a member appears to have been manufactured in June 2011. This update was put out in 10/2010 - is it still alright to run - the release date and manufacture date has me a little concerned? The headunit I have doesn't have the BMW start screen and I can't use the IPod controls on the steering wheel other than to adjust volume when the IPod is selected.
