DigaDo, I waited and waited for Panasonic to mail me the promised CD with the update firmware installer on it . . . of course I gave up waiting.
So I had remembered your post, and this bright and chilly Sunday morning I pulled out the pdf file, and went through the steps. The only thing I did differently that wasn't in the pdf was to rename the downloaded Pana_DVD file once it was on my desktop. I added ".FRM" to the title.
All went well.
Since the upgrade happened, I guess my Panny 25 needed it. Thanks, again, for pushing me to the correct path. My guess is that the code was written in WordPerfect -- who knows???
I strongly suggest those doing this print a paper copy of the .pdf file:
Another note: with computers and computer related stuff, the equipment and software is created by a team. The team that writes the user instructions are not crazy or stupid. The team process is usually flawed because changes get made after the instructions get written. Then the team never gets the final version of instructions done because everyone is screaming to get the goods on the train which is already rolling out of the station. So the innocent user must apply a good dose of imagination with regards to on-screen messages, etc.
Did I say, "Thank you!" . . .
