Of course! Nothing special really, used my PC at work, reformatted USB stick to FAT 16 and downloaded a new copy of the file. Worked like a charm....

I was a bit jaded from my prior experiences and I had tried all of these variations of formatting before but could never get the car to recognize the new software. But my car is a Sept '10 build, one of the first with the combox, and I thought whatever early software version I had simply wouldn't handle the updates.

The dealer claimed it was resolved with the total car update I got a couple of months ago but this was the first chance I had to test it. Needless to say I was a bit frustrated when my first try did not work!
