More than six unsuccessful attempts flashing to 3.1.3 (from 2.12) using a CF card with Ospack (in root directory) inserted in the SL-5500.

When I hit the hard reset both lights come on, but when I release the " C & D " keys the lights immediately go out, and I have to wait about eight minutes for the 5500 to self heal and the charge light to come on, then reset and return to 2.12 configuration.

Used this same procedure last week on my other 5500 flashing it from 2.38 to 3.1.3 and it flashed on the first go.

Can't figure out what I'm doing wrong, or what I may be overlooking.

Any words of wisdom would be appreciated.

Are you using the same CF card?

The ospack hasn't gained a file extension or anything like that?

The ospack is not corrupted is it?

Thank you Si! No, I used a Simple Media 128CF media card that came with my second SL-5500, my other flash was with a PNY 128CF.

I (just now) opened a new PNY 128CF card and copied ospack to it, and it flashed the Z straight out of the chute. Yeeha!

What threw me, was on the first attempt, both lights stayed on for about 10 minutes till I finally said Hell with it and hit reset. After that the lights would go out as previous described (as soon as I released the " C & D " keys.

Thanks again mate, my head got totally bent out of shape during the exercise, not condusive to logical thought.

Cheers, Joyeux Noel, Lou
