Copy of post from other thread:
Here it is ( DV-575A ver. 2.09 ):
1. Save File and unzip
2. Burn to cd-r ( I used EZCD creator )
3. Load into player. ( I have the pioneer DV-578A )
4. At upgrade menu, press play
5. Drawer will open and the player's display will read "loading". Wait. Drawer will close.
6. Open drawer, remove disk
You will have to reset all initial settings at the main menu.
This solved my Talking Heads Brick problem and right now I'm doing a bit of this:
Well I spent most of last night putting the 578 through some testing. As stated above, the upgrade solved the Talking Heads - Brick problem but I also had a problem with NIN - With Teeth and Bon Jovi - Slippery When Wet dual disks. They also locked up the non-upgraded 578. Unlike the TH, which loaded the menu screen fine and locked up only when I selected a song, the NIN and BJ would lock up before the menu screen. And unlike the TH, the NIN and BJ was not a "hard lock up" (had to unplug power to reset). I was still able to hit "stop" and just switch to the Dolby Digital track. The upgrade DID NOT solve the NIN and BJ problem.
Other than fixing the Talking Heads problem, I see no other changes or affects from the upgrade. But getting the TH to play the DVD-A tracks was the Goal. Score.
This upgrade was soooooo easy to do. I really don't understand why Pioneer doesn't make these firmware available for download. In looking for the 2.09 ver upgrade, I read that there is a 2.10 ver out there, somewhere. With what seems to be problematic with the authorizing of DVD's and future formats. Hardware company's will have to make there software available so there CUSTOMERS can tailor the systems to there own liking.
