Help installing the region free firmware for a Pioneer DVD-104s

I’ve recently installed a second hand Pioneer DVD-104s (Firmware 2.02) and have downloaded the Region free version of the 2.06 firmware update.

From the information that came with the update I understand that I needed to boot into DOS mode to install the update.

I am running Windows XP (Home) SP3, so I downloaded a boot disk ISO. I have used this to boot successfully into DOS mode, but cannot read the NFTS C: to access the update files.

Can anyone advise on the steps I should take to allow the update to proceed?

Welcome to the forum! :flower:

You shouldn’t need a separate boot disc to get into DOS mode. Just reboot your machine and hit the F8 key to bring up the various Windows boot mode options.
