    Unhappy CD70 update problem

    Hey guys, I have read around and was wondering if you could help me as the help I have found hasn't resolved my problem. A friend gave me an update disc for the firmware which was a burnt copy, and told me that I should update my cd70 unit with it. I went forward with it and was greeted when updating the firmware with no loading bar and ended up sitting for 45 minutes waiting for it to do something. An hour passed and i decided to turn the car off, the unit stayed on with the update message, so i pulled the fuse to the unit and left it to reset itself. Now the message has gone but have no navi and have to turn the unit off everytime by pulling the fuse. I have the original navi disc but no language disc which was not supplied with the car when i bought it. I have tried resetting the eeprom but still no luck.

    Any help would be appreciated

    Hmm.. very hard problem.
    As advise and maybe you have luck:
    - write another CD with the update firmware at very low speed (2x or 4x), a CD very quality, eg Sony or Verbatim
    - go an electronics workshop to eject manually the older CD and load the newer CD (writen on lower speed and quality CD) without create other problems.
    - put back in CAR and waiting ...one hour, twelve hour, one day, ...I don't know, if have luck will start, if not, ... very big problem.

    Yeah i've seen a few threads like this, written to a decent disc the updates and nav discs (and mp3 discs) work absolutely fine. Ask your friend to lend you the original instead of his backup.

    did what you said, and it worked a treat. My navi before hand wouldnt read any discs so the fuse for the cd70 about a day and a half and it seemed to have worked. I burnt the cd with alcohol 120% and on the slowest speed, put it into the car.. and the loading bar came up and finished the update.

    thanks for the help!
