How to burn a Pana_DVD.frm firmware update file in .iso... format?

I need to do a firmware update for my Panasonic Blu-Ray player-

Several coasters later?- I can't figure out how to force Windows 7 to do anything but copy it in data format (not readable on my Pany).
The Pana_DVD.frm file, needs to be burned in .iso... format?

I tried right clicking on the blank CD/DVD in Explorer/Format, but Create an MS-DOS startup disk is greyed out?

What instructions are provided at the Panasonic web site? Can you give us a link to where you downloaded the firmware update from?

I update my Panasonic through the internet, I guess that's not an option for you?

If it's similar to these instructions, SC-BTT370/770 Firmware Download (North America) | Download | Blu-ray Disc Player/Recorder | Digital AV | Consumer Products | Support | Panasonic Global

You need to make it an ISO file first.

The Official ImgBurn Website will do that, First, in easy mode, select Create image file from Files/Folders,

Name:  Capture.JPG
Views: 23
Size:  50.1 KB

Then select your source (put the PANA_DVD.FRM in an empty folder) and destination folders, and under the options tab change the file type to ISO9660 (Stated in the instructions from Panasonic)

Name:  options.JPG
Views: 33
Size:  60.9 KB

It will ask you if you just want the contents of the folder in the image file, yes.

It only takes a few seconds to create the ISO, then you can burn that to a CD with imgburn or windows.

This is the firmware link for my DMP-BDT210-
DMP-BDT110/111/210/215/310 Firmware Download | Download | Blu-ray Disc Player/Recorder | Digital AV | Consumer Products | Support | Panasonic Global

This the link for their installation .pdf-

The problem here is that it deals mostly with XP...

I also tried calling Pany's Clueless Tech Support (5 times), and they were No help with Win 7?

The same method I posted above will work for the link you just posted.

I made the ISO twice while I was posting above.

Updated without making it ISO...!

This time I downloaded the .exe file from, Panasonic North America Support (instead of Global compressed file), and saved it to Desktop (instead of a Desktop Folder) -
Pansonic Product Support - DMP-BDT210

I then burned the .ini & .RAR file"s" to my blank CD (No ISO, and Close when Finished ticked), per the NA .pdf instructions...-

Installed in about 10min, and my Blu-Ray player is working Good!
