How to update firmware in the NPC

Written by Paul McGowan

To update the firmware in the NPC (NuWave Phono Converter)you will need a blank USB memory stick of about 1GB. Smaller is ok as well, as the size of the downloaded file is small. Go to our downloads page and find the driver or firmware you need for your product. Download the file, which will be in a zip (compressed) format. Unzip the file.

Prepare the USB stick

To prepare the USB stick we suggest doing a quick format prior to loading the new firmware (erase all the old files) then unzip the new files and drag and drop the unzipped files from the above link onto the stick. Once the USB memory stick contains the new firmware you will need to power off the NPC with the toggle switch in the back, insert the stick into the unit's rear USB input, then return power to the unit. The update may take several minutes, but should take no longer than 10 minutes. Once it's completed you should be good to go.
