    I downloaded the new firmware on to the sd card but I can't transfer it on to my P3P? I'll insert the sd card turn on the P3 and it'll cycle like normal? I didn't see the the blinking green and red light? What am I doing wrong?

    Maybe not reading the directions. But there may be other reasons.

    Ok tried it again and the p3 started doing a d-d------------d-d--------------d-d-----------with the rear two lights flashing green and red then it stopped after 18 minutes? Does anyone know what that means?

    I can't check to see if the file downloaded or not cause I chose the wrong program To open the file with and all I see is Greek

    I assume your not trying to put the latest release (which is for the advanced only) onto your professional?

    If you are on Windows, use notepad and open the .txt file

    Uh on the controller/screen it shows that I need a firmware up date so I updated it the firmware? Was I not suppose to?
