■ 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 MMP1 firmware.
Windows: DanteFirmwareUpdateManager-x.x.x.x_windows.exe
Mac: DanteFirmwareUpdateManager-x.x.x.x_osx.dmg
x.x.x.x represent the version number of the Dante Firmware
Update Manager.
Double-click the Dante Firmware Update Manager installer and follow the onscreen instructions to install the firmware.
NOTE
• 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 MMP1 device.
When Dante firmware needs to be updated, execute the following procedures.
NOTE
• For details of the Dante Firmware Update Manager, refer to “AUD-MANFirmware Update Manager” stored in the compressed file folder.
1. Connect the Dante [PRIMARY] connector on the rear panel of the
MMP1 device to the Ethernet connector on the computer using an
Ethernet cable.
Be sure to directly connect the computer and the MMP1 device, 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.”

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).
NOTICE
Be sure to ensure compatibility of the update files with MMP1. If update
files other than MMP1 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].
NOTE
Dante Firmware Update Manager may be blocked by the Windows Firewall.
Select the [Private Network] checkbox and click [Allow access].

6. Check the MMP1 to update.
Check the version of the update files and the version number indicated in
the MMP1 line.
NOTE
If the MMP1 is not indicated, click [Refresh]. If it is still not indicated after
that, the computer and the MMP1 are not connected properly. Check that
the cable is not loose or disconnected, TCP/IP is properly configured, and
the MMP1 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.
NOTICE
Update takes 2 to 4 minutes. During the update operation, do not turn off
the power to the device or disconnect the cable. If update fails due to
MMP1 Firmware Update Guide
11
disconnection of the power cable during the update, or due to other
reasons, the device may become inoperative.
NOTE
If update is not completed after 5 minutes, or update failure indication
appears, exit the Dante Firmware Update Manager program without
turning the MMP1 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 MMP1.
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 MMP1. 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 MMP1 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).
Described below are the procedures to recover the Dante module integrated in
the MMP1 device.
1. Turn off the power to the computer and the MMP1.
2. Separate the MMP1 from the Dante network.
3. Connect the Dante [PRIMARY] connector on the rear panel of the
MMP1 device 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 MMP1.
6. Start up the Dante Firmware Update Manager as follows.

The recovery operation will begin.
10. When the “Recovery image loaded” dialog box appears, click [OK].
11. Exit the Dante Firmware Update Manager, and wait for two minutes
before turning off the power to the MMP1.
