I have the Software D605 (from the Page 44 link) downloaded on to a 64Gb USB Stick. Currently I have D502 installed with hardware 033. I get the "Download is not possible because media is not suitable for this device. Please use NissanConnect software download image only" warning. Is this likely to be an issue with the USB Stick ? Maybe the formatting or something ? Does the structure look normal ? thanks for any help.

I figured it would be the USB stick. I have ordered a smaller one just for this job. I do have a 64Gb stick which has all my MP3 stuff on and works fine, but I seem to remember I had to use some other program to format it to the required format for NissanConnect. Thanks for the confirmation.

Can I drive whilst it is being updated ? On Wednesday I have a 4 hour drive back to work. It would be good to do it during the drive to save wasting petrol (I don’t want to risk it just with the Hazards on and Battery only).

That error says the media type is not suitable. I could not get a USB stick above 16GB to be recognised and thats just for music. Only FAT32 works at that, so its a dinosaur system.

If your software is ok then it should load once the right size + format USB stick is used. See what others here who have done it say.
Thanks calnorth. For info, I have a 64 Gb stick running with my music on. I needed a special software to format it though. I will try to find out what I used.

Running the engine while updating firmware is the same as mains powering a PC/Laptop when updating Windows. Its the way to avoid the Battery failing part way thru the firmware update. The essence is to keep the engine running just in case the Car Battery fails until the update finishes.

yes drive while it`s updateing you`ll be fine. no special software needed to format new usb just plug it into your windows laptop/pc open up the usb folder right click on mouse select format change the file system to fat 32 in the format menu and it`s job done :D

Try this one:

I can't remember if it is the one I used as it is three years ago, but this will format larger Memory USB Sticks in FAT32.

Thanks. I will give it a go. I read somewhere that FAT16 is the normal Format, and as I have got a 4GB Stick coming I will try that first.

FAT16 is MSDOS and originates in 1984. Don't think Nissan is that much of a dinosaur, so I'd keep to FAT32 as its the most widely compatible FAT system.

Thanks for that. I have just uploaded my new POI File on the 64Gb reformatted to FAT32 with the Software I mentioned. I am going to see if the D605 will load now. If it does, great. I only wasted 4 Euro on a 4Gb one from amazon :)
