Has anyone managed to install the above update yet?

Either way, I connect it shows as a removable drive so I cannot access the root directory

i picked mine up to check the version and noticed that the lettering on the front is already fading (where it says scene/menu/mark/AB).i can imagine a year from now not being able to read that.

dpa 4060 series is pretty much waterproof. in fact their recommeneded method for cleaning capsules is dipping them in distilled water

Just paste the .UPD file to the USB, top level, when it shows up as a removable drive.  Connecting the R-07 to a PC only allows access to the USB card in the device.  I don't know why that blurb about the "root directory" was put into the instructions, as it confuses more than helps.  The instructions are not referring to the root in any onboard storage on the device itself, if that's what is concerning to you.  When you execute the update step, the procedure is looking to the USB drive for the .UPD file. 

I updated with no issues, took all of a minute at most.

Not sure if this is redundant info, but did some tests on r-07 zippering while I was checking battery life for Naint IPA & Schoeps caps.

tldr: Audible and (visible waveform) zippering when changing gain quickly. Nothing audible or visible when hitting the plus or minus to change by 1.

I've set gain to 30, a bit lower than what I think will likely be right for using with the IPA, based on comparison to known good levels into my MP-3.
I will slooowly adjust up at inaugural show w IPA Friday.

Love that I can turn everything on, put it under my jacket, and control with phone. As long as levels/zippering can be dealt with, the r-07 will be great.

B&H has the red model R-07 now for only $169.99,  here the link ...

Damn that's tempting...I'm not sure if I'll be able to resist this price.  Who cares about the color if it can stay in a pocket the whole time?

1. My usual cable works fine, as long as I don't go through a USB hub.
2. Transfer speeds are slooow, 100MB/minute.
3. Update wouldn't work until I tried it on batteries, rather than USB power. Maybe this is a Mac thing?

I used the R-07 for a SBD patch (RCA outs) last weekend. For what its worth the IOS app worked fine from over 30 feet away...

ugh, have never had an issue connecting a recorder to my PC before, but the R-07 is giving me problems. got one of those Roland cables referenced earlier in this thread in the mail today, and tried connecting the R-07 to the computer to update the firmware. the very FIRST time i plugged it in, it worked fine, it immediately recognized it. however, i unplugged the R-07 from the computer to check something, then plugged it back in, and ever since i cannot get the computer to recognize it. what i mean specifically is i still hear the little Windows noise every time i connect it or disconnect, so it's detecting that it's there, it just will not show up under "Computer" for me to access it no matter what i do. i've already tried turning the R-07 on and off, disconnecting the cable from both the R-07 and computer ends, as well as restarting the computer. none of these things get it to show up again. if i could never get it to show up again, i'd still be able to transfer files by taking the card out and inserting a micro SD card reader, but i cannot update the firmware unless i get the computer to properly recognize it again. any other ideas? i'm running Windows 7.

Are you connecting directly or through a USB hub? I've experienced the same thing (Mac version) when connecting through a hub, and found success w direct connection.

But, on this subject, do others find USB transfer to be crazy slow? I think I'm getting like 100MB/min, 2GB takes 20 min. Card reader ftw.

it's a direct connection, no hub. not sure what's going on. in the past i've connected a sony pcm-d50, olympus ls-10, tascam dr-100 mkII, and SD mixpre-6, all without issue. they just showed up as they should. the r-07 is the first time i've had this problem.
