Items Needed:

 


 

Caution:

  • Never apply this update data to any product other than the V-60HD. This update data may destroy the data or system program of other products.

  • Never power-off your V-60HD while the update is in progress! If a power failure or similar accident occurs during the update process, the V-60HD won’t be able to start up in normal operating mode. This will require servicing, so you will need to contact Roland service center near you if this occurs.

 


  

Procedure:

Before you begin, connect the USB Flash Drive to the V-60HD's USB MEMORY port, and format it in the menu:

Do not open the .PRG or .BIN files, they are not  programs that run on your computer, and do not rename them. You will later upload them to the V-60HD in the following steps.

 

 

Step 2

 

Copy the update file V-60HD.PRG to the root directory of a USB flash drive. 

Do not copy the v60hd_sys_v301 folder to the USB flash drive, only the .PRG file inside that sub-folder.

Copy NPU update file V-60HD_NPU.BIN to the root directory of a USB flash drive.

Do not copy the v60hd_npu_1032 folder to the USB flash drive, only the .BIN file inside that sub-folder.

Note: The root directory is the top level or main folder you see when you connect a USB flash drive and click to open it.

 

Note: If your NPU version is 1.032, you do not need to copy the NPU .BIN file. To check this, hold down [OUTPUT FADE] button, and switch on the power. Continue to hold down the [OUTPUT FADE] button until the version information appears on the display.

 

 

Step 3

Power off the V-60HD.

Connect your USB flash drive to the V-60HD's USB MEMORY port.

Step 7

Go to [MENU] > [SYSTEM], and scroll to the end to check the version number and verify the update was successful.

Then, run a Factory Reset from that same page of the menu, it's right above the version number.

 

If you updated your V-60HD from an older version and you were previously using the RCS Remote Control Software, download the latest version of that software from the V-60HD Downloads Page to ensure compatibility.
