    Hi All

    I need to get hold of the firmware version UPDATA_07x021.ZIP for the Sony BDP350

    I tried to update with a burnt disc in Dec 2010 and it just wouldn't progress the update. Since then I've decided to give it another go before ditching it. I've found out that this is a common problem when burning the disc from a mac. I've found a solution to fix it but need to get hold of the original file.

    I'm hoping someone might have a copy stored on a hard drive they can help me with.

    Cheers

    Why don't you just plug it into your router and let it update over the internet?
    If that's not possible:confused: try this newer firmware Downloads

    The problem is that it's hung on the update, so you can't get to any menus etc to get it to use the Ethernet connection. Likewise, I can't use the latest update because it doesn't recognise it. It got stuck doing the 021 update so that's the file I need so I can resume the update

    There is usually a means to re-flash failed flashes in most devices (e.g. its not in sonys best interest to brick your goods and need to RMA them) - but you might have to ask sony for instructions (unless its on their website FAQ) - often its a combination of pressing certain keys on power on and it will look in a certain place (e.g. a burnt CD-ROM or a USB key) and restart the flash.
