  7. A status bar will display the download progress of the firmware. Once the download is complete, the application will prompt you to install the update onto your player. Click Yes to confirm.
  8. The application will show the update status, and at the end, you must click OK to complete the update. (Do not disconnect the player during the upgrade process, as an interruption may damage the firmware!)
