No need to learn italian now, the UK site has the files and instructions

You need to unzip the zip onto a clean memory stick and seriously be careful and wait until she asks you to remove it before you do (It can be a 10-15 minute wait)

PS if you already have that version then it will not overwrite.

Hmm if you've tried 2 id rule that out as an option, the USB stick is deffo formatted FAT32? and theres nothing else on it other than the contents of the zip file (extracted to the root of the pen drive eg F:)

If its a Grande, have you tried both of the USB ports the hidden one under the flap and the one to the Left.

No its a Bravo, only have one port.
Yes its formatted Fat 32 and all the extracted files in the root of the usb drive.
It says updating then reboots the radio then says installing then reboots radio and says usb error 10.
I wonder if the files are not correct on fiat website??
As its 5.4.9 now I think (although its 10 on the cab file), was that the version you updated with.

I have the same problem as djdan00. I recently purchased a 59 Grande Punto and the Blue&Me iPod adapter.

I downloaded the latest update 5.4 from the Fiat website and placed the files on a FAT32 formatted USB drive with no other files on the drive (as specified). When I follow the instructions on the Fiat website, i.e. place the USB into the slot and then turn ignition key to MAR it says "Update started", then after a few seconds it says "Update failed, USB error". I have tried this in both USB slots (Grande) and on different USB drives, with the updates downloaded from different PC's.

The only thing I can think is that it already has the latest version of Blue&Me already installed on the system, but then wouldn't this mean that album tracks would play in order instead of alphabetical order? This is the only actual problem that I have with my iPod and Blue&Me system.

Any help/advice is welcomed.

Cheers!

It should in theory still do the update and say update complete if it has the new software on (according to the instructions).

I dont think mine does have 5.4 because I plugged my iphone in via the adapter and nothing happens it just charges.
It does say 'media player' when you have usb stick in with mp3 on.

Watch out for an extra file appearing on the USB stick after the failed install, it will be a text log file of what happened and may have some clues in there.

I can't remember the filename but it will be in the root of the drive. Post the contents up here if you like.

Looking at the upgrade files itself there is no 9093_P folder where there is a folder for 6314_P which is what I have.
Dont know why this would be!! Maybe it already has 5.4 so its not included in the update file.

Ive booked mine in with the dealer to be sorted. Strange I keep getting usb error because Ive managed to install eco drive and I have tried a brand new usb for the update (which fiat.co.uk forums keep tell everyone to do)

We need to see the file after a successful update to check the final version number.

Can someone who has installed 5.4 find out whether AAC files will play from a USB stick, please?

I'm not so bothered about playing direct from my iPhone as my phone isn't always in the car - I'm sure the wife would like a better choice of songs on the USB and I can be bothered to convert everything!

To those who are lucky enough to have one of these adapters (cos its out of stock at the mo) can you tell me if the adapter just plugs straight into the usb socket and then the iphone mounts on top? without any usb wire? I was wondering if this is the case, wouldnt it be rather easy to accidentally snap the phone off or even break the adapter leaving bits still in the socket? :confused:

Can anyone tell me, once they have upgraded to 5.4 and using the adapter, if their album tracks are playing in the correct order, or if they are only playing in alphabetical order?

.. If they are playing in the correct track order how did you manage to do this??

Thanks.
