I have a Philips DVDR 3595H recorder, and numerous attempts to upgrade the firmware have failed.
The recorder, which I bought in November 2007, came with firmware v1.43 installed. Attempts to upgrade the firmware with the various versions which have subsequently become available, either via USB flash disk or CD, have all failed. The recorder initially recognizes the firmware, restarts, begins the upgrade process (as verified by the UPGRADE message in the display), and then displays an “ERROR DL” message. After that, the recorder restarts and the process is terminated with the opening of the disc tray.
I tried again today with the new firmware v3.04 which has just become available, but again without success.
Has anyone else come across this problem? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
