[ How to upgrade iAUDIO Firmware Ver.3.xx ]

Firmware is a program in the hardware and activates various hardware functions.
By upgrading firmware, the product performance can be greatly enhanced and bugs can be corrected.

1.Requirements of firmware upgrade
Firmware upgrade can only be possible when iAUDIO driver is properly installed to the user?s computer
and also when JetShell can communicate with iAUDIO without any problems.

2. Checking the firmware version
To confirm the firmware version, check the number which appears on the lower right of the LCD window
when you turn on the power. Number such as 0:03:50 indicates that the current firmware version is 3.50.
Firmware version is displayed also on the LCD when iAUDIO is connected to your PC.

Unzip the downloaded file into a temporary folder (for example, C:iAUDIOTemp) where you can find easily, by
using a zipping utility like the Winzip.

4. Make sure the battery is inserted in iAUDIO.

5. Connect the USB cable to iAUDIO. The "PC Connected" message appears on the LCD.

7. Run isp.exe in the directory you unzipped. Then press the [Start] button.

8. Wait until the "firmware upgrade success" message appears on the LCD.
Normally it takes approximately 35 to 50 seconds to finish upgrading

Never disconnect the USB cable before the "Firmware Upgrade
Successful" message appears!
