I burned the image from the Geocities site (http://www.geocities.com/comand12000/) onto a CD-R, inserted the disc into my 2000 CL 500, pressed the "#" and "*" keys and turned on the COMAND. Nothing. I get a message that says something about "Insert Update CD" or "Cancel". I tried reinserting the disc but the COMAND unit doesn't seem to recognize the disc as an update.
Is the COMAND unit super-sensitive about the brand/type of discs that you use? These same discs work in my CD changer though.
This update is for Euro Comands. I've never tested it on a US Comand, but I wouldn't be surprised if the US Comand refused to do the update.
You did try it on the 'old' Comand, didn't you? It does not work on the newer 'rounded' Comands (C-class and new E-class fe).
..........I have a Euro comand and the download from Geocities does not work. I spend days doing this and it does not work. I am yet to find someone who has actually downloaded from the site and actually installed it in their comand. I will prefer to hear from such an individual as I have wasted so much time by listening to to advice from people who have ACTUALLY NOT DONE IT.
Got the EU with TV in mine but this doesnt work either, get to INSERT UPDATE DISC
I burned the files to a CD-R closed the cd.
Hold # + * and power button the unit ask for the cd I insert the cd but nothing happens...
I also do NOT see any current firmware version nothing but PLEASE INSERT UPDATE CD..
I can hear the drive spin but nope will not work
Any ideas what and how can we see the current version?
