Help! Navigation OS update went bad

Yesterday I decided to upgrade my Mk4 navi to OS version V28.

I burned a disc image of the upgrade cd with Alcohol 120%
and all the files were there on the disc.

When I inserted the cd to the navi, it first said:
"CD-rom in navigation computer
Loading software" but after that the screen went blank.

I waited for 15 min, but it stayed blank.
I burned another copy but this time it stayed blank from the
beginning.

Today I also managed to find a update-cd with version v27 that had already worked with another BMW. It didn't work for me. My screen stayed blank
with that disc too.

What more can I do? I would really appreciate good advise..


-Pete

Exclamation Burn Slow

Burn a new CD (v28) slow (2x or 4x). Put into the navigation system and wait. Few minutes and update starts.
Important: this kind of disc, should burn slow!

I did burn another copy with 2x speed. Nothing changed, I still
have totally blank screen.

Does it matter if I use RAW DAO or SAO etc. when burning?

Are there any other Alcohol 120% settings that should know about?

Like I mentioned before, I already tried a friend's V27 version
which had worked fine for him. It didn't work for me.
If I keep trying, should I try with v28 (which I tried originally)
or other versions?

Anything else I could try?

Hi,

put the V28 cd in the nav computer.
Disconnect the MK4 from the power, the blue connector.

Then you put the blue connector back, and the update will go.

I tried disconnecting the blue connector. It didn't help.
I'm getting desperate...
