Re: UPDATE: DMCP-3.10 / DM42-3.10

All,
To anyone interested, I couldn't get firmware via FAT to work. However, I tried using udf-utils on one of my Ubuntu linux machines and it worked. I'm now running 3.10 ... phew!

Revwillie, I tried it both ways. 1. just hitting eject on the PC and pressing enter to flash with the usb still connected 2. hitting eject on the PC, unplugging usb....DM42 then tells you to connect usb else risk draining battery during flashing... Both makes the DM42 freeze (I've checked and it's n...

Re: Bricked hardware when updating

Is there anything I am missing using the SwissMicros instructions for updating a two part firmware upgrade which 3.7 is stated to be. With 3.7 you don't need to use anymore dm_tool, you can find the update instructions for the two parts firmware here . This has not yet been reflected on the main DM...

Re: Request for Links to Open in New Windows

For what it's worth and I'm not sure how universal this will be, but I just middle click on a post using my mouse wheel as a button and that opens posts in a new tab. This doesn't even need a second hand for CTRL...I use Firefox in Linux. :) Edit: I just tried it in Windows 10 with IE, and it works ...

Re: Annuciators

I worked out what was setting the Flag 1 annunciator on my DM42. It was the "Convert" programme (converts between units, e.g. cm to ft etc.). (At least I know about flags now).
