We do not know how long Toshiba will continue to host the firmwares for their players, so I figured some people may want to download firmwares for later use in case they want to switch firmware versions on their backup players or main players in years to come. Below, I have compiled a list of firmwares hosted directly by Toshiba. Feel free to add any other links below. I will update this post with other links if they are direct links to Toshiba. All links in this posts are for the North American players. I have not tested all of the firmwares posted as I do not own all of the players. Flash at your own risk.


EDIT: Old links are dead. I have added new links, but it looks like Toshiba only hosts the newest versions now. The old links are left for reference only.

There are some older A1 and A2 firmware Here




If you don't have Nero and can't burn a NRG file. You can covert it to a ISO with NRG2ISO . Then you can burn your ISO with IMGBURN on a CDR at a slow speed like 4x.



You can check or make a MD5 hash with MD5 Checker v2.31 . If you can't figure out how to use it. Download the Help file .






I know that these might be off topic but I added them in case anyone needed them.

Does anyone have RCA HDV5000 firmware links? I know the A1 is basically the same machine and uses the same firmware; I just like to keep the Rca splash screen if possible.

I was looking for their firmware and manual yesterday. They don't have anything to download on their site. Their last firmware was 2.0 and download of that is N/A. http://support.rcaaudiovideo.com/dow...spx?product=83

You might as well use the Toshiba firmware because it appears that RCA left everyone out hanging a long time ago. If Kanye West were here right now. He would say that RCA doesn't care about HDV5000 owning people.

Is it possible for some one more in the know to put descriptions to the firmware revs to see what you are upgrading too?


For example my A20 has a 2.8 upgrade but my question is could this be as bad as the XA2 2.8?


It could be confusing.


Thanks for any help!

Thank you for this thread, I just bought an A35 unexpectedly (stumbled across one with dumb luck!) and am very happy to have the option to NOT update to 2.0!

I downloaded the 2.7 firmware for my XA2 and want to go back to that from the 2.8 that is currently installed. Anything else I have to do or just burn it to disc? Do I need to download anything else? I just watched Into the Wild with the AVC codex and the jaggies were very noticeable.

I don't think you can go back a version without some editing of the image file header. The machine checks to see if a newer version is loaded and stops. There is a discussion in the XA2 2.8 firmware thread, and someone posted a 2.7* version which is 2.7 firmware with a revision code above 2.8, so the player thinks it is newer firmware and will use it.


It may be nice to include this modified firmware version in the above listing, for those that don't like the result of 2.8.
