I have a NEO KEOPS USB HDD that allows me to use it as a TV drive, i.e. it allows me to watch AVI, MPEGS etc on my TV.
I have always had problems with it in that it refuses to play ALL of some movies, it just stops in the middle and moves on to the next file, even though these files play fine on the PC or my main Hyundai player … very weird.
I have found there is a new Firmware release & have downloaded it. Unfortunately, even though this machine (and it’s better and worse, if that’s possible, brethren) is over 3 years old, the French developers STILL don’t have a working English version of their web site or a UK manual to work from !!! The following is a translation of the French instructions on how to apply the Firmware :
French to English translation Compatible with Windows 95b / 98 / NT / 2K / Me / XP / 2003 Server / Vista
We will proceed to update your NEW KEOPS
STEP 1. Recover your files on your New KEOPS.
STEP 2. Format your New KEOPS via My Computer
STEP 3. Transfer the file "upgrade.rom in the root of New KEOPS
STEP 4. Then re-upload all your files in the New KEOPS
STEP 5. Create 3 separate files: VIDEO, MUSIC, PHOTO (Optional)
This is absolutely fine until I get to Step 3 … how the feck do I copy a file to “the root” of my drive ?!?!?
OK, I unpacked it to the drive, attached it to the TV, turned it on, no apparent difference … I went into SetUp & there is an option for Firmware Upgrade … it tells me that the current version is 2007 & there is no update on the disk. I know that the version I downloaded was 2008.
I unpacked it again & this time left it in the Firmware folder, rather than unpacking it directly to the root, as insinuated, re-tried … no difference !!!
Anybody got one of these crap machines?
Anybody speak French and can ascertain from this website ... click here what the hell I am supposed to do ?!?
