Updating Prime



#10

When I try updating the HP Prime according to the directions I fond here I get an error....


1) I downloaded all the new files
2) I installed the new emulator
3) I installed the new connectivity kit
4) I hook up my prime, right click, select Update Firmware, and immediately the calculator "HP Prime Recover Mode v13." and the only thing I can do is press the reset button. What am I doing wrong?

Did you unzip the firmware files and copy them to the folder \Users\your name\Documents\HP Connectivity Kit\Firmware ?


#12

Yes, I copied the files to the right location. First 2 or 3 times i ran the firmware update it said no update found, now I just get the error.

I had the same problem. Make sure you use a USB port, not a hub, open the CK, let windows find the "device", let the CK find the 5447 Prime firmware update and install it (in a subdirectory below the CK), reboot the computer, make sure the physical Prime gets recognized, only then update firmware.

Good luck. I managed to totally mess the boot loader, and needed to run the Prime recovery kit.

I had that problem on a USB 3.0 port and Win7.

After I connected the calc to a USB 2 port, the system loaded (or installed) some drivers.

I was then able to upgrade the calc without any further problem.

Hmmmm. That describes my situation too. I'll try on my wife's laptop and see what happens.

I'm still having the same result (failed updating, error 104, frozen Prime). I tried a USB 2.0 port but no change (using my HP Pavilion dv7 laptop, Win 7). Tim already suggested I call the support line. I guess that will be the next step.

I also have a pavilion dv7 and I couldn't update. Today, i try to update in a Acer, and it works. HP PRIME UPDATE DON'T WORK ON HP LAPTOP! This is ridiculous. Before calling hp support, try to update on a different computer.
