Thanks Jeff, I tried installing the update but when I run the file through Sonic RecordNow! it says “The feature you are trying to use is on a network resourse that is unavailable” "Click OK to try again, or enter an alternate path to a folder containing the installation package ‘RNENU.msi’ in the box below. The box below contains "c:\hp mp\src"
I tried using the computer’s search to find RNENU.msi but apparently it doesn’t exist…
Forgive me for being a noob, up untill today I had never even heard of firmware.
