Well lets start out by saying thank you, and I have finally got the firmware needed for anyone who owns a Aiptek mpvr.

Steps to finding the firmware you have. at first it may be hard to understand but a simple task after you acomplish it.

Step One have camera at hand, turn on camera and

1. hit the "MODE" button to display the features camera and go to "PLAYBACK" you must have playback displayed

2. hold the center "play" button on the screen, and the "MENUE button, , Press both of them at the same time, do not let go.. within 3-5 secs the words will display

My camera shows

FW 1203 upgraded to F/W 1707

HW 00upgraded to HW 00

this camera was Purchased on sept 2005.

Steps to loading software to the camera.........................

Not responsable for the action of the software.

step 1 take a sd card and Format it to fat Format by pc ( do not format the card to fat32 and do not use mmc card)

step 2 Copy attachment " V38main1501_upgrade.elf " to sd card

step 3 Insert the sd card to v38 and turn on the camera (hould say insert the sd card with the v38 software)

step 4 Press the " MODE " button to enter the Main meu window

step 5 press "MP# PLAY BUTTON (on the panel) and "RECORD" button together.... for 3 secs to start the F/W upgrade proceedure".

this will be showing the CAMERA as the main highlighted picture

step 6 The LED will glimmer for a few secs ( about 30 secs)( red dv/dsc light

Step 7 when the process is complete, the camera will turn off automatically. Follw the how to check firmware above to see if new software loaded

.................................................. .................................................. .......

If you like to recieve the software Please Place you name here and I'll pm you with an account to retrieve it.

what firmware do you have? I have not tried it. I must

1. know what I have in the firmware

2. the 6800 f/w 6 meg and 8 meg

3.8800 f/w 8 meg

and what the orginal one is from aiptek. I emailed them if i do not hav the F/w info then it may just be a dulpicated mpvr file they have.

so good luck if you decide to try it out.

1st post

Firmware...never had any new firmware with the 4500. How is that supposed to work anyway? How would it affect the camera? Usually all you get from Aiptek are newer camera drivers, which only change how Windows deals with it, and it doesn't change anything on the camera at all. :??

I'm a little hesitant simply because I have to format my SD card into FAT instead of FAT32. Can that damage the card in any way? ALSO, what is this firmware supposed to upgrade? :??

3face;

talking to the Aiptek rep via phone call, and being updated. there will be some software and hardware modifications. hoping that you hold just more then the on button. possably the on and menure at the same time, till the MAIn OFFICE in Tawain conferms the release to the USA. we'll wait the answer, some may not follow through with the phone calls some may not have this problem , some may not see it as a problem, but at least I know one does not have a camera yet?????? again



update Aiptek USA will be notified last, first it is Tawain, second China. Uk, then USA. as told




I am hesitant as well. I do not know. this was for the aud and vid synch problem. so I bet it reloads the orginal content back to the camera and that may be why alot of 6800 acting as 8 meg?????

ha ha ha thought i fool around with the firmware

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"i tried hitting the keys w/o the firmware and the camera will shut off then I thought I be a wise guy and try doing it with another key , well I see it will say "sd burn" lol gotto see it slower I well reburned the same software 4x already. and will leave it like that , I guess onece you move fward no stepping back. I know my vid can go fast foward and rewind noe Lol. but the vid/ aud is a fixation
