I read through the thread in its entirety, and your post did answer most of my questions - thanks.
There are a few things I’m still not sure about. The first is the SD card size – a few people are purchasing 16gb cards to replace the original 8gb. It’s been mentioned that this was either as a safety measure to keep the original card image intact as a backup, or alternatively that this is necessary because the new image files’ size exceeded the capacity of the 8gb, which would render it a necessity to buy a new card. Which of the above is true?
Second, I cannot access any of the SoTM links so I can cross reference their instructions because their site is down. Does anyone have this downloaded that they can send me? Or, perhaps it isn’t necessary because it just details what was already said here…
Third, is it necessary to unplug my DAC while doing this? I don’t see why it would be, but one person did just to be ‘safe’… but, I don’t see any risk in it. SoTM recommends unplugging USB ‘disks’ when update via the web GUI, but this is a different scenario… and also a DAC is not a USB ‘disk’ – they are referring to plugged in HDDs I think.
Thanks! You saved me having to search around for 'best software to do X and Y". I’ll use as you suggested.
