I'm sorry you are having a problem with updating the firmware in your T8S. Let's double check something.
- Please turn the power off and back on, on your T8S. Then:
- Turn the Rotary Selector to Prefs
- Scroll through the menu to Versions
- Press the menu button.
What version does it say?
If it is still 1.0.1 - please try again with a different USB cable connected directly to the computer and the T8S (not through a hub).
