Hello & Welcome,

Sorry I didn't see your question earlier and to hear of any issue you are having with your device.

To help you with this issue, may I ask:

1) The FULL Model Number of the device you are working with? If you can send the Serial Number (usually printed on the case, right next to a BAR CODE), that would help.

2) What type of computer do you have (windows, mac. etc.)?

3) What program (tool) are you trying to run to update the device?

I'm glad you got the issue resolved.

Please let me know if you have any more questions.

And when you are ready, please take a moment to rate MY service level (Excellent is my goal) so that I get credit for my time in helping you today.
You should see some "stars" to do that, but please let me know if you do NOT see them (you may have to scroll UP or DOWN) or can not use them.

Thanks, ***** *****
