Troubleshooting

If the DCT fails to update, try these troubleshooting steps.
  • Download the file again and verify that the size of the file is similar to what is reported on the software update website
  • Make sure the file is in the root directory of the USB drive (not in some sub folder)
  • The drive may need to be reformatted. This can be done on the screen itself under "Settings" -> "System / Global Settings" -> "Format USB drive". THIS WILL DELETE ALL FILES ON THE DISK. Afterwards, the file can be recopied onto the drive and the update attempted again.
