Step 4. Firmware decompression

Check the file size of the downloaded file and decompress it. (Supported for Windows only.)

  1. Checking the file size
    Right click on the downloaded firmware, and select "Properties". Make sure that the size of the file is the same as the size listed on the download page.
    If the file size differs, please download it again. After checking the size, click [OK] and the "Properties" window will close.
  2. Decompressing the file
    Double click the downloaded firmware and decompress it.
    The decompressed file will be named "PANA_DVD.FRM".

File size is 125,755,902 bytes.

NOTE:
You will not be able to install firmware designated for a region that is different to the region in which you purchased your Panasonic Blu-ray Disc™ Player.

Step 5. Create a firmware update USB device.

To create a firmware update USB device, store the decompressed file in a USB device.
Once the firmware update USB device is created, continue to the next step.

    Steps
  1. If the firmware update USB device has write errors, it will not be readable by the Panasonic Blu-ray Disc™ Player and you will not be able to update the firmware.
    Prepare a USB device with the capacities from 256MB to 2GB.
    Confirm definitely that you have no problem if the original contents in the USB device are deleted.
  2. Format the USB device by FAT12, FAT16, FAT32 and NTFS file system on a Microsoft Windows PC.
  3. Copy "PANA_DVD.FRM" file which was decompressed in Step 4 to Root (*1) of the USB device.
    (*1) Root = Top layer of file hierarchy
