View Full Version : Kenwood kdc-x796 firmware update

Got my new Kenwood awhile back. I'm trying to update the firmware. I burned it to a CD and followed the owners manual instructions. I keep getting a message that the disc contains no data. When I look at it on my PC I can see the file.

Try updating it from a flash drive.

I tried that too (like we did on my wife's x797), but apparently this unit only accepts updates from a CD according to the manual... If I go into the menu for the firmware update, the head unit only checks the CD drive....

Just some other things to check, did you close the cd when you burned it? was it the only file on the cd? Read this guide and verify you are following instructions step by step. http://www.kenwood.com/cs/ce/receiver/firmware/2012/pdf/12FLIP_FWverup_en.pdf
