Sorry jtbell, I'm so used to the Mac I didn't think about the virtual PC software I have installed where I just drag & drop files and use both Windows & Mac OS on the same system.
You would need some form of Windows to use the self extracting feature of the download. Once it is extracted, the Mac can do the rest.
I have an older "Dual 1.25 GHz PowerPC G4" Mac that I run Microsoft Virtual PC for Mac 7.0.2 software on. I downloaded the Panasonic BD55 firmware on the Mac, (the size is 26.7 MB that is named "UPDATE_BD55PP_V15.exe"). I drag & drop it on the Virtual PC screen to unzip it and drag & drop that file, (now 29.3 MB and named "PANA_DVD.FRM") back on the Mac side to burn it on the CD-R.
If you have access to a windows PC, a memory stick can be used to tranfer the extracted file to the Mac.
