Jeez what a dumbass. I've been having a lot of problems playing DivX movies on my Yamada 6700, the movies would go out of sync with the soundtrack if I paused it or used FF/RW. So I did a Google and found this site. From reading a few threads it seemed like a firmware update might be worth a shot. I downloaded a firmware from http://mtz.softpedia.com/index.php?option=com_weblinks&Itemid=4 burned it to CD and put it in the 6700 "Push PLAY to upgrade" it said, so I did. Then it ejected the CD and displayed "LOADING" on the display. So I waited .... and I waited .... and I went and made a coffee and I came back to find it still said "LOADING" on the display. I'd read of other folks killing their players by not waiting but surely I'd left it long enough (or so I thought) So after a while I rebooted the player... and now it's dead of course! Did I do something wrong or is this Firmware Upgrade business a bit of a gamble? Should I have left it 30mins or what? At what point do you give up waiting for the display to change from "LOADING" ? I'm not keen to buy another Yamada 6700 if it has the same playback issues and the same problems updating the firmware. Any advice from you guy that know about this stuff? Thanks -- Jake.
