Firmware upgrade instructions:

WARNING: Although firmware upgrade is an easy and usually trouble-free process, it is important to ensure that the power supply to the player is stable, and the upgrade process is not interrupted. A failed firmware upgrade can render the player unusable.

WARNING: Please do not attempt to load US version firmware to your EU model player. Your player will detect the firmware file as incorrect or corrupt.

There are three ways to upgrade the firmware: If your player has an Internet connection the easiest way to upgrade the firmware is the "Via Network" method. If you have a USB thumb drive, you may choose the "Via USB" method. You can also use the "Via Disc" method by preparing a firmware upgrade CD yourself or requesting a firmware CD from OPPO customer service. Please follow one of the three procedures below based on the upgrade method chosen.
