My Time Factor is at version 1.0. I manually put it in update mode. The update utility recognizes the box. I choose a firmware version to update to. I enter my username and password. I agree to the next thing, and the next thing…. and then the update utility just quits without warning or explanation. I've tried this with 2 different Time Factors on 3 different computers. one was running Mac OS 10.3.9, one with OS 10.4.11, and yet another with Leopard.
I think it only worked because I first started with the Time Factor in normal boot up mode so the update utility would get the firmware version number. Then when I clicked the "Why?" button next to where it said it's not ready to update it said to start it up in update mode and then refresh. I did that and the version number was shown along with ready to update. then it actually worked and updated my time Factor. Go figure….
the only strange behavior now is that the update file was not saved anywhere on my computer.
