■ Install the Dante Firmware Update Manager
Before you update the Dante firmware, you must install the Dante Firmware Update Manager.
Dante Firmware Update Manager installer is contained in the same compressed file as Nuage I/O
firmware.
Windows:
DanteFirmwareUpdateManager-x.x.x.exe
Mac: DanteFirmwareUpdateManager_x.x.x.dmg
x.x.x represents the version number of the Dante Firmware Update Manager.
Double-click the Dante Firmware Update Manager installer and follow the on-screen instructions to
install the firmware.
・The Dante firmware does not operate normally if its path contains any multi-byte character (including Japanese
characters). If you use a directory name containing any multi-byte character in your computer, store the firmware
update files in a directory that consists only of ASCII characters (e.g. C:\temp).
・When installing the Dante Firmware Update Manager, temporarily disable any running anti-virus software.
・The "User Account Control" dialog box or the “Windows Security” dialog box may appear. In such case, click [Install
this driver software anyway].
・In the middle of installation of the Dante Firmware Update Manager, you may be prompted to install Bonjour. In
such case, download the Bonjour installer from the URL presented by the installer and install it.
・You may be prompted to restart the computer after the installation is complete. Before proceeding to update, restart
the computer.

■ Updating the Dante firmware
Described below are the procedures to update the Dante module firmware integrated in the Nuage I/O
unit.
When updating Nuage I/O and Dante firmware needs to be updated, execute the following procedures.
・For details of the Dante Firmware Update Manager, refer to “AUD-MAN-Firmware Update Manager" stored in the
compressed file folder.
1.
Connect the Dante [PRIMARY] connector on the rear panel of the Nuage I/O unit to the Ethernet
connector on the computer using an Ethernet cable.
Be sure to directly connect the computer and the Nuage I/O unit, and do not connect any other Dante
device to the computer.
2.
Start up the Dante Firmware Update Manager as follows.
Windows
Select "All programs" or "All apps"  "Audinate"  "Dante Firmware Update Manager" 
"Dante Firmware Update Manager."
Mac
Double-click "Applications"  "Dante Firmware Update Manager."
・Check in the title bar that the version number is 1.3.2 or higher.
・The "User Account Control" dialog box may appear. Click [Continue] or [Yes].
3.
Click [Update Dante Firmware].
4.
Click [Browse] and select “FWUpdate_Nio500_vxxx_swyyy.dnt." Then click [Open].
xxx and yyy represent the firmware version number.
・The Dante firmware does not operate normally if its path contains any multi-byte character (including
Japanese characters). If you use a directory name containing any multi-byte character in your computer, store
the firmware update files in a directory that consists only of ASCII characters (e.g. C:\temp).
NUAGE Firmware Update Guide

Be sure to ensure compatibility of the update files with Nuage I/O. If update files other than Nuage I/O are
applied, the device will become inoperable. In general, do not check the [Override Device Matching] option. If
this option is left unchecked, only devices that support the file can be selected, ensuring that updating the
device with invalid or wrong files is prevented.
5.
Click [Next].
・Dante Firmware Update Manager may be blocked by the Windows Firewall. Select the [Private Network]
checkbox and click [Allow access].
6.
Check the Nuage I/O to update.
Check the version of the update files and the version number indicated in the Nuage I/O line.
・If the Nuage I/O is not indicated, click [Refresh]. If it is still not indicated after that, the computer and the
Nuage I/O are not connected properly. Check that the cable is not loose or disconnected, TCP/IP is properly
configured, and the Nuage I/O is powered on.
7.
Click [Start].
The update operation will begin.
“Updating(n/m)” appears in the Status field during updating. “Done” is displayed once update is completed.
Update takes 2 to 4 minutes. During the update operation, do not turn off the power to the unit or disconnect the
cable. If update fails due to disconnection of the power cable during the update, or due to other reasons, the device
may become inoperative.
・If update is not completed after 5 minutes, or update failure indication appears, exit the Dante Firmware Update
Manager program without turning the Nuage I/O power off, and restart the procedure from the step 4. If update
still fails, follow the instructions stated in “About Failsafe Mode” to perform the recovery processing.
8.
Restart the Nuage I/O.
The firmware update is now complete.

■ About Failsafe Mode
During normal operation, software must be loaded from a flash memory drive during operations to use
the Dante module integrated in the Nuage I/O. However, data in a flash memory drive may
occasionally become corrupted, as with any other storage device.
In many cases, such data corruption is caused by turning the Nuage I/O power off during firmware
upgrading.
The Dante module has a specially protected flash drive section in order to recover from such a
condition. When the main section is damaged, the program stored in the protected area is activated
and the Dante module goes into “failsafe mode.”
To restore the Dante module in failsafe mode, a recovery image needs to be sent from the Firmware
Update Manager.
To check if the Dante module is in failsafe mode, use Dante Controller: the respective device is
displayed in red in the network grid view of the Dante Controller (version 3.1.x or higher).
Further, a message “NETWORK AUDIO MODULE FAILED AND WAS RESTARTED.” appears also
in the Nuage I/O screen, so you may check that the DANTE version information is not displayed in the
version field of the Nuage I/O unit.
Described below are the procedures to recover the Dante module integrated in the Nuage I/O unit.
1. Turn off the power to the computer and the Nuage I/O.
2. Separate the Nuage I/O from the Dante network.
3. Connect the Dante [PRIMARY] connector on the rear panel of the Nuage I/O unit to the Ethernet
connector on the computer using an Ethernet cable.
4. Turn the computer power on and login with administrative privileges.
5. Turn on the power to the Nuage I/O.
