Do I copy the fireware and drag to PRIVATE, TECHNICS,KN7000 or
in a folder ex:TFLD001 ?
Thanks again

Hi Howard,

None of those. It should be in the top level.

You also have to take it out of the zip too. Double-click on the zip to open it and then drag the "KN24PRG.DAT" into the top level of the SD Card.

Best wishes,
Mike

Hi
"Root" is the "page" that first open. If it's nothing to see on a USB stick or memorycard, no folders or anything, that's usually the root of the disk.
If the file you are going to use have to be in the root, just drag (or copy/paste) direct into the SDcard, not into any folder.

Did you do exactly the way it's written in "chapter" 3 when card placed in keyboard?
The part about repeat press buttons?

Quote:
................
... Now copy the file "KN24PRG.DAT" to the SD card.
3. The update on the KN2600:
- Insert the SD card into the SD slot of your KN2600.
- Press and hold the first 4 Panel Memory buttons and
turn on the keyboard.

- Select UPDATE repeatedly until the process starts.
- At the message "Completed !! Turn on AGAIN" switch off your KN2600 and
after about 2-3 seconds again.


I've downloaded the update file from CA and added here as well if you want to try with a new zip just in case your file is damaged in any way.

Hi John I try again to update but no luck
I done exacly what the procedure is

I format my 2gig sdcar from the 2600 I did not put a name on the sdcard
I unzip the update that you send me to the sdcard and after
I install in the slot of the kn2600
I press panel memorey 1234 at the sametime and press the power
buttom==Blank blue screen.

John do you think that the software should be KN24PRG.EXE
or KN24PTG.DAT
Because the update for the kn2400 is .EXE in a floppy disk

The software 1.1 on the procedure is to have a sdcard 8mb to
64mb,but me I have only a 2gig sdcard
Thanks very much
Howard

Hi

According to the written "How to" document, the file you shall place in the root of the SD card is KN24PRG.DAT

But, I'm not quite sure if the file is correct for the KN2600. Then maybe it should be named KN26PRG.DAT and not KN24....
Maybe that's why you get the blue screen and no action, it's not the correct file, and KN2600 refuse to read it.
I've searched the web to see if I could find another downloadsource, but no luck so far.

Regarding the exe file, if I don't remeber it wrong, at Technics own supportpage we could download exe files to extract stright from PC to floppy disks before process the update.
(The exe file(s) you have are probably ment for KN2400? I downloaded the KN2400 file from CA, and that is 2 exefiles ment to extract to floppies.)
