After updating please double check your key registrations and make adjustments as necessary before returning the writer to normal service.   If you have any questions or desire assistance please do not hesitate to call tech support at (800)800-1759.


To install an update to the Passport's application software:

1. Copy the update file, passport.upd, to an external media device such as a SD card, Compact Flash card, or a USB flash drive.

2. Make sure that the writer is turned off.

3. Insert the external media device into the writer.

4. Turn the writer on.

This procedure will reprogram the writer's on board flash memory with the new Passport application software. The update will take approximately 30 seconds to install during which the LCD display will appear blank except for a very brief progress indicator. Once the update installation has completed, the writer will restart, and be ready for use. Please double check your key registrations and make adjustments as necessary before returning the writer to normal service. As part of the process, the Passport update file is automatically deleted from the external media device.
