I tried to update my Software on Hog 1000 from V3.2 (Build162)
to V3.3 (Build177).

Downloaded the Zip File from HES Download page.
Unzipped it
In my directory now appears for the first Disk:

hog 1401 kB BIN-Dat

and for the second disk:

hog 648 kB BIN-Dat

inserting "Disk 1" into the console
turn console on, by pressing "Enter"
pressing "2" "Enter" to reload SW

Now the Console says:
Please insert disk 1, this ist not disk 1!

What is wrong, anybody can help?

    Are you using fresh fully-formatted floppies? Have you tried a few other disks to rule out a probelm with the disk itself?

    Also format the new disk on the colsole before you put it in the computer. I have had several Hog 1000s that did not like disk formated on computers.

    last week i had a little time and
    tried to update again.
    Now i fixed the problem:
    when i unzipped the jnt2_177 file
    2 new files are created:
    disk 1
    disk 2
    but these are also zip files!! :mad:
    so unzipping these files too
    will result in 2 BIN files named:

    trying to load these BIN files onto the desk failed,
    because the desk says:
    can`t find disk 1
    >>> renaming the files from jnt2.bin to disk1.bin
    and jnt3.bin to disk2.bin

    NOW IT WORKS :eek:

    Why is there no advice in the usermanual or on the website Downloadpage for those things???????????? :no:

    It should function correctly and extract to jnt2.bin for both disks. Then it is up to the user to keep track of which disk they put which file on. I am not sure why you had different experiences. What OS are you using to do your unzipping and copying?
