The load progresses to what seems like the end but then quits. I tried a CD and a DVD. I guess I'll just keep it like it is and try loading the FW another time since it is working now and I have one. A bird in the hand and all that...
Thanks again Wajo for all the work and great information in this thread!
I just ordered a couple of 513's from suddenly-found Walmart stock and plan to update them both to 727V.
EDIT: My prev. stated plans for updating my new 513's to SuperFW 727V have changed since Nocturnal posted
that he got a new, early-513 (Apr-Jun 2011 Mfg) and went directly to 727V. His unit had OEM FW 718
, the first FW any 513 had, so updating ANY 513 directly to 727V *should* be OK.
