SIMRAD Software update

I recently purchased an SIMRAD NSE8 chartplotter and searched the net for software updates. There was a newer version than the one that came on the MFD. I downloaded it as instructed but am having a problem copying it to a SD Card or USB device as directed. Anyone else experience this problem and how do I work around it. It appears that my computer won't recognize the format of the updated software.

Re: SIMRAD Software update

Are you using a new blank SD card? You might have to format the card, I would try formatting it as MS-DOS

do not format the card if it has info on it that you want to save! It will be wiped out.

Re: SIMRAD Software update

Can't really help. I did a software update on my NSS, just followed the instructions and it went perfectly.
