Anyone know a way to extract the image file so I can post it? My computer says the disc is an invalid format. My HD-XA1 reads it fine.
Great news! I was able to extract & save the image file. I then burned a new CD-R using the saved file (.nrg) and tested it in my HD-XA1. Worked like a charm.
The file is 48mb, so I can't post it here on the forum. I've uploaded it here:http://www.savefile.com/files/7678296
To make the CD-R, I used Nero Burning ROM 6-SE software. I set the "recorder" drop down menu to "burn image" then pointed to the saved file. I then set the Burn speed to 4X (because I think its more reliable), then started burning.
After successful burn, load the disc into your HD-DVD player. Screen will show "Proceed with update? Yes/No". Select yes, then enter. Front panel display will show progess, and when finished will display " update successful" and show the new version #. Disc will then eject and unit will shut down. You are done!Please don't attempt this if you don't know what your doing!
Wait for Toshiba to release the "official" disc next week.
OK, now all you early adopters can get a head start & see if Toshiba has responded to your gripes. Best of luck! Enjoy!
