Hi James,

yes, the RNIB usually do supply updates.  i remember getting mine two years 
ago, after I had done the update myself. This is a firmware version of the 
victor reader classic's that the RNIB talking book service distributes.

Ok, well, with downloading the update from the web i.e. visuaide, if you can't 
wait or, just want to get the firmware update over with, you've got that luxury 
of doing that whenever you want.  THere's not a lot of difference between doing 
that and waiting for the CD from the RNIB.  Only that, you'll wait however long 
it takes and, sometimes it can take a long time.

OK, I'll just locate the webpage again....

here's the webpage to the features the new firmware offiers.  I'm sure I've got 
the right one now.


I hope it is right.  it should be firmware version 3.0.7

thankfully I got some help in locating the "exact" file I needed for the older 
model I've got.

Hope this answers you're questions James.

all the best,

  Hi Justin

  I'm using one of the players provided by the RNIB.  Can anyone confirm that 
there is new firmware for the RNIB-issued players, and explain what the 
benefits of upgrading might be?  When this has happened before RNIB have 
distributed the new firmware on CDs with a talking installation process that 
just does it all. What's the deal if you download it from the website?
