Classic symptoms of using an ISO Mode 1 disk in a MK III.

First job is to get the CD out, try pressing and holding the eject button for a long time, that sometimes works. If that fails (after maybe 10 minutes holding the button) try pressing it rapidly for about 1 minute.

Next job is to get an ISO Mode 2 firmware disk, the current firmware may have been wiped.

CD is out.. tried burning several different cd's made sure they are MODE2, still no luck... also, the POWER on LED doesnt light up... :\ followed several threads on this board and downloaded all the magical MK3 revival ISO's... no luck... any confirmed firmware version's to try? Also, with confirmed MODE2 correctly burned CD's, it will take the CD, spin it, makes noise as if its doing something, few minutes later, ejects the cd, and then in a seconds takes the cds again, and keeps going and going, should I keep letting it do that or not let it take the cd back in? Also, I have GT1 computer... could that be any help? I read somewhere, chaning the language? Im no expert on using GT1 yet, still firguring it out... so step by step instructions would be GREATLY appreciated...

THANKS!!!!!

I'm having trouble w/ the conversion program. I can't seem to get a good .iso file once i convert from the .nrg. All I get is 30+ files and folders that don't look anything like what I did for V27.1. Is there a straight .iso version out there that can be downloaded?

I want to upgrade my nav to this new version, but am worried about skipping revs. I am at 1-4/20 right now. Can I skip straight to 30 or 31?
