I have just updated successfully with the update from Magenta. I reformatted my 32 gig stick (fat 32) downloaded the "17" update. Unzipped it with 7-zip onto the stick. One swl folder and one info file. Installed without any probs. Hope this helps.

Great. Glad that you proved also that the link works. I used the same method but with WINRAR.

I have tried again and still wont work for me same message. I have tried 3 different Toshiba USB sticks 2 16gb and 1 32gb . Same error message each time. No idea why it wont work for me if working for everyone else. I have tried just with SWL file and with updateinfo file aswell.

Before trying again I would make sure your mem sticks are OK and genuine. I've recently had a terrible job obtaining genuine micro sd cards and mem sticks. There are so many fakes around!.

All those that are getting error messages or failures a few questions. If your answer is NO to any of these then that is your problem.

Is your memory stick formatted FAT32? A least 16gb(works best)
Did you use WINRAR to unzip?
Has your memory stick go a folder called SWL on it and one file called update.xml

Did you use WINRAR to unzip? I tried WinRAR and 7-ZIP
Has your memory stick go a folder called SWL on it and one file called update.xml It has SWL and Updateinfo
