■ Preparing for the update
You will need the following items ready to execute the update procedure.
● A Windows computer equipped with the following conditions:
OS
Windows 8/8.1
Windows 7
/Pro
Ultimate / Professional / Home Premium
CPU
Intel Pentium 1.2GHz or Intel Celeron 1.7GHz or higher
HDD
250MB or more
Connector
An Ethernet connector that supports a data transfer rate of 100Mbps or
higher
● An Ethernet cable (CAT5e or higher recommended. Straight or cross.)
● The Ri/Ro firmware
Download the latest firmware from the following URL.

■ Update procedure sequence
Update each firmware component in the following sequence.
To update more than one Ri/Ro unit, configure “Computer TCP/IP setting (for Ri/Ro unit)” and
perform “Updating the Ri/Ro firmware” one by one. Then, configure “Computer TCP/IP setting (for
Dante)” and perform “Dante firmware update” one by one.
Install the Dante Firmware Update Manager

Computer TCP/IP setting (for Dante)
Updating the Dante firmware
If there are 2 computers, you may use one for Ri/Ro unit firmware update and the other for Dante
firmware update so that you can perform the work without switching the TCP/IP settings. To update
more than one Ri/Ro firmware application, it is recommended to use 2 computers for the update.
3
■ Install the Dante Firmware Update Manager
Before you update the Dante firmware, you must install the Dante Firmware Update Manager.
Double-click the Dante Firmware Update Manager installer downloaded in “Preparing for the update”
(DanteFirmwareUpdateManager-x.x.x.exe) and follow the on-screen instructions to install the
firmware.
x.x.x represents the version number of the Dante Firmware Update Manager.
In addition, extract the Dante firmware (extension: .dnt) from the compressed file.
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).
・The “Windows Security” dialog box may appear. In such case, click [Install this driver software anyway].
・You may be prompted to restart the computer after the installation is complete. Before proceeding to update, restart
the computer.
・When installing the Dante Firmware Update Manager, temporarily disable any running anti-virus software.

■ Updating the Dante firmware
Described below are the procedures to update the Dante module firmware integrated in the Ri/Ro
unit.
・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 Ri/Ro unit to the Ethernet connector
on the computer using an Ethernet cable.
Be sure to directly connect the computer and the Ri/Ro unit, and do not connect any other Dante device
to the computer.
2.
Pull the dip switches 4 and 8 on the Ri/Ro unit front panel down (ON) with the other switches
remaining in their up positions (OFF).
3.
Turn on the power to the Ri/Ro.
4.
Select [Start]→[All programs]→[Audinate]→[Dante Firmware Update Manager]→[Dante Firmware
Update Manager ], then right-click and select “Run as Administrator.”
The Dante Firmware Update Manager will start up.
Check that the version number is 1.3.2 or higher from the title bar.
・The "User Account Control" dialog box may appear. Click [Continue] or [Yes].
5.
If you see the interface selection screen, select the interface card to connect the Dante device.
6.
Click [Update Dante Firmware].
11
7.
Click [Browse] and select “FWUpdate_Ri8-D-vxxx-swyyy.dnt” in case of Ri8-D or
“FWUpdate_Ro8-D-vxxx-swyyy.dnt” in case of Ro8-D. 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).
Be sure to ensure compatibility of the update files with Ri/Ro. If update files other than Ri/Ro 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.
8.
Click [Next].
・Dante Firmware Update Manager may be blocked by the Windows Firewall. Select the [Private Network]
checkbox and click [Allow access].
9.
Check the Ri/Ro to update.
Check the version of the update files and the version number indicated in the Ri/Ro line.
・If the Ri/Ro is not indicated, click [Refresh]. If it is still not indicated after that, the computer and the Ri/Ro
are not connected properly. Check that the cable is not loose or disconnected, TCP/IP is properly configured, and
the Ri/Ro is activated with the correct dip switch settings.
10. 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, click X at the upper right corner
of Dante Firmware Update Manager to exit the program without turning the Ri/Ro 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 process.
12
11. Turn off the power to the Ri/Ro and return the dip switches to their original settings.
Please return the dip switch settings to the positions noted in step 2 of the "Updating the Ri/Ro firmware."
The firmware update is now complete.
13
■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 Ri/Ro. 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 Ri/Ro 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 a 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).
Furthermore, the red [SYSTEM] indicator on the Ri/Ro unit will periodically flash twice.
Described below are the procedures to recover the Dante module integrated in the Ri/Ro unit.
1.
Turn off the power to the computer and the Ri/Ro.
2. Separate the Ri/Ro from the Dante network.
3. Connect the Dante [PRIMARY] connector on the rear panel of the Ri/Ro unit to the Ethernet connector
on the computer using an Ethernet cable.
4. Turn the computer power on and logon to Windows with administrative privileges.
5. Turn on the power to the Ri/Ro.
6. Disable all but one of the network interfaces on your computer.

7.
Select [Start]→[All programs]→[Audinate]→[Dante Firmware Update Manager]→[Dante Firmware
Update Manager ] , then right-click and select “Run as Administrator.”
The Dante Firmware Update Manager will start up.
・The "User Account Control" dialog box may appear. Click [Continue] or [Yes].
1.
If you see the interface selection screen, select the interface card to connect the Dante device.
2.
Click [Failsafe Recovery].
3.
Check the detected Ri/Ro.
4.
Click [Start].
A pop-up is displayed confirming that you wish to proceed.
5.
Click [OK] to start the recovery.
6.
Exit the Dante Firmware Update Manager, and wait for two minutes before turning off the power to

device(s) are recovered.
the Ri/Ro unit.
7.
The correct Dante firmware now needs to be loaded.
Follow steps 2 through 11 described in "Updating the Dante firmware."
Now recovery and firmware update are completed.
