Here you go...




And in case...

How to Update the C4CPC?
------------------------
Download the Update .rar files from here:
http://www.cpcwiki.eu/index.php/C4CPC#Latest_Firmware
On this site you also find the Update procedure explained.

Now we proceed with the Update for Windows computers...

1. Install the ATMEL DFU drivers. They can be found in the update archive, f.e. here:
   "C4CPC_V1.00.05\windows\dfu-prog-usb-1.2.2"
   Just right-click on "atmel_usb_dfu.inf" and select install.
   You do need administrator rights to do this.

Error: "The INF file you selected does not support this method of installation"

2. Prepare the C4CPC card for update: Put DIP switch 4 ON, other switch positions don't matter.

3. Connect the C4CPC card to the PC via an USB cable.
   Then press and release the reset button on the C4CPC card.
   This will restart the C4CPC card in DFU mode.
   Windows should find the driver you installed previously.

4. Launch the C4CPC_V1.00.05\windows\UpdateCartEmu.bat batch file.


A second way...
---------------
Let's do it the other way:
- Plug the card with DIP switch 8 ON to your PC
- Reset the C4CPC card.
- Windows should look for a driver online, but will fail to find one.
- Open the device manager (configuration panel / system and security / system)
- In the listed device you should find the ATm32U4DFU

 X Andere Pheriphrie
   X ATm32U4DFU

- Right-click on it, select properties
- In properties, select update driver
- Select the second option: search a driver on the computer
- browse to the C4CPC_V1.00.05\windows\dfu-prog-usb-1.2.2 then select next

The driver should be installed now

You just need to start the C4CPC_V1.00.05\windows\UpdateCartEmu.bat batch file

Thanks for both methods.
Together It worked.ON my old Bomb of a Machine running XP --Phewww
And The C4CPC is updated to 07.


I dislike intensely Windows, BUT It did the job


Thanks.   Ray

Great that you succeeded! When I did my update I had to bug Gerald a lot. He actually made the "how to do".

Personally I also prefer hardware which I can update using the CPC like the CPC-Booster(+/Mini). Then no 2nd computer is needed (to be bought). But main thing is that it worked!  :) :) :)
