We only have one USB port that we can see, in the central column.mcginsa said:Having had the same issue here (blank screen during update), I wanted to share a fix I discovered that allowed me to avoid dealer fees! (out of warranty)
(I previously ran a 3.21 update and after allowing 25 minutes, discovered that the smeg unit was black screened and apparently dead)
Downloaded the relevant SMEG update - in my case I went for 3.21 (rar file)
Took a USB drive and used software called 'Rufus' to format the drive as fat32.
**IMPORTANT** - as part of the format process, Rufus creates an 'autorun' file on the usb drive. *** (Rufus also allows you to create bootable drives, but this isn't necessary in this case, so de-select that box).
Extracted the downloaded rar straight onto USB and made no other changes. This left me with just : autorun file x 2 and SMEG_UPG folder in root folder of driver.
Placed usb in right hand slot, started engine, and the update 'autoran' and the unit was up and running in 10-15mins.
So my recommendation is that anyone having update issues considers formatting their usb so that it has 'autorun' files also copied on. The software 'Rufus' appears to allow you to create this.
Currently have 3.17.Rainsong said:Hi guys
New member here and proud owner of a Peugeot 208.
I have already learnt a lot from you guys and I feel I should also offer my contribution.
I thought I should post my experience with upgrading the SMEG firmware and despite having that initial error 'no music found' and several attempts playing around with the files and folders I have managed to find the correct way of upgrading it. Because some people might find it a bit hard to understand I will post some pics so people can visualise it. I think where most people go wrong is on how they put the files on the pen. Hopefully it will help someone who is looking into upgrading the firmware.
I should say that my car came with SMEG 3.17 andn then I upgraded one version at at time. First to 3.20 and then to 3.21. Some say that you can upgrade straight into the last version but I did not test that.
Finally, the disclaimer, this is how I have done it and it it just a guide. It worked for me! I do not take any responsibility if something goes wrong with anyone who follows this guide.
Right click on the USB stick in your file explorer and select Format and make sure FAT 32 is selected.
A Quick Format is good enough.
Extract the firmware you have downloaded to the USB pen
You will find the links in this thread
The root of the USB pen should look like this
Inside the folder, here's what it needs to look like - 3 folders and the loose files (please note these files are for the 3.21 version)
As an additional precaution it is recommended to deselect the read only property from the folder and files
Right-click on the SMEG_UPG folder and choose Properties and then deselect the read-only attribute at the bottom and click Apply and OK.
Go to your car and turn the engine on and keep it on throughout the whole process. Insert the USB stick and follow the instructions. Once it reboots it will ask if you want to upgrade again but since you have already done that just say no and remove the stick.
