Very well might be stupid user error. I've just had the unit for 2 days, and thought I'd upgrade. The cf card appears to be ok – I copied the downloaded files to it from my mac. But nothing happens when I attempt to upgrade. Seems like the instructions say to insert the card with the pcmia adapter (provided with unit) – and when powering up, hold down the 2 key. I get the oupdate message, but it doesn't say that it's been successful, I get the option to restart or click 'done' and when it restarts it says that it's still 5.3, which is verified when I go to the info menu.
at no time does the busy light flash.
What silly thing am I missing?

Not clear EXACTLY what you are doing and seeing – can you be VERY specific, and maybe we can tell what is going on.
But first, please try a different card, and if you can, adaptor. Faulty cards or adaptors are the most common cause of update problems – just cos your card is OK with your PC/Mac, does not mean it is totally good.

Just in case anyone follows these things, or has a similar issue – the problem was with the card included with my h8000fw. I picked up a 2gb card and it worked perfectly right off the bat.

wow great! after trying for days, i finally found this answer and it worked. I took out a 16gig card from a camera and formatted it as 1 gig Fat (not 32) just in case – worked immediately.

Well, it's definitely not working for me. I get the same oupdate message. Tried 2 different CF cards and PMCIA CF adapters, all Viking 64MB and 256MB cards both formatted to FAT. Files loaded on the cards were the zip contents:
What am I doing wrong?

Don't know what you are doing wrong – presumably some card or adaptor problem that can't be diagnosed from here.
If all else fails, you can buy a pre-programmed card from the Eventide Store.

Thanks for the response Nick. That seems like an expensive option. The thing is I've used one of my existing cards/adapter to upgrade a previous H8000fw OS release and now they don't work. I'd hate to purchase a pre-programmed card only to discover it doesn't work, then point to the $9 adapter if you know what I mean. Maybe I can mail you my card w/5.5 loaded, and Eventide adapter to test?

OK – send it to Eventide at Little Ferry marked for my attention.
Be sure to include both a return address and email address.

Thanks Nick. Will send out first thing tomorrow morning.
