Problem with files

Hello
I try I open the reference http://www.geocities.com/comand12000/

Click here to download the MY01 Comand update (3.07MB) (I can not open)

Comand Pin Layout (91K) (opens)
Can to non-can bus conversion.doc (4.06MB) (I can not open)

You could not lay out them where to lay out on ftp, what they could be extorted?

I am sorry for my English language.

ISO burned fine, but COMAND doesn't recognize

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.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

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.

I tried to upgrade firmware on my European Comand 2.0, but my system shows date May 2002, while upgrade disk seems to have date Oct 2001...
Reading so, I stop operation.
Anyone knows more?
Thanks!

I was under the impression that some of the newer map CDs included the updates. I believe I remember sticking a disc in and it said it was updating for a few minutes.

I think it's impossible... :eek:
Updating needs 30-40 minutes, and upgrade cd is different from maps cd :thumbsup:
