UPGRADE DSMC FIRMWARE TO v6.3.74

NOTE: User Preset, Look, and Custom Overlay files will be preserved across upgrades of v6.2.3 or later.

1. Connect an SSD (RED MINI-MAG or REDMAG 1.8") to your computer.

NOTE: On Mac computers with REDCINE-X PRO installed, RED Watchdog mounts the SSD as Read-Only by default, which means that you are unable to write files (including firmware upgrade files) to the SSD. Change the Mount preference to Read-Write before attempting to copy firmware to the SSD.

2. Download the most recent firmware from www.red.com/downloads.

3. Unzip the firmware zip file.

4. Copy the force_upgrade folder and its contents to the top level of the SSD directory.

5. Eject or unmount the SSD, and then remove the SSD.

5. Ensure the camera is powered down and the REDMOTE is undocked.

6. Insert the SSD with the force_upgrade folder into your DSMC.

7. Power up the DSMC.

The upgrade automatically runs at power up.
During upgrade, the fans run at high speed and the PWR and REC LEDs flash green. After approximately 15 seconds, the LEDs stop flashing and the camera powers down. Nothing displays on the external monitors during the upgrade.

8. After the camera powers down, remove the SSD and wait 10 seconds.

9. Power up the camera.

The camera may take 30 seconds or longer to upgrade all the attached modules. During this time the PWR and REC LEDs flash green and nothing displays on the external monitors.

10. Go to Menu > Settings > Maintenance > System Status > Camera Info and verify that the firmware version listed matches the firmware version that you downloaded.

11. Reformat the SSD before recording to it.
