Use Remote Update to download files to your printer from a USB flash drive
The Remote Update feature allows you to download template and database updates and execute commands after reading the files from a USB flash drive connected to the printer. This feature is available only when the templates, databases, and other files need to be updated.
Preparing update data on a USB flash drive
Copy the updated files onto a USB flash drive.
Create a new text file and name it UPDATE.INI.
Open the file in a text editor, enter 8 alphanumeric characters in the first line (for example: 20190101), and list the names of the updated files below (One file name per line. Make sure the file names are no longer than 8 characters, excluding the file extension: BIN or BLF).
- Copy the newly created UPDATE.INI file to the same location on the USB flash drive where the updated files are stored.
Updating printer data using a USB flash drive
Turn on the printer.
Connect the USB flash drive to the printer.
If any updates are available, the data update icon appears on the printer's LCD.
Select [Update by USB] from the LCD menu.
When the data update starts, "Transferring" or "Downloading" will appear on the printer's LCD.
Depending on the file size, the data transfer may take a while.
- When the update is completed, the printer returns to the idle mode. You can now remove the USB flash drive from the printer.
