IntelliPAP users must have a PC serial port available for the firmware upgrade to work. The DeVilbiss software only supports a serial connection; USB-to-USB or other connections will not work.

3. Close your web browser and all other open applications.
4. Run the DV5xFirmware.exe application Note: No files will be permanently installed on your computer.

6. Click the "Start" button to begin the firmware update. The progress bar and status messages will be updated as the firmware update proceeds. Wait for the update to complete before using your computer. Do not run any other applications during the update.
7. When finished, the software shows the results on the screen (OK or Fail). If the update was successfully completed, you can close the program by clicking the "Exit" button. If the update fails press "Start" to try again.

This rather rare serial/DIN cable seemed to be of good quality and performed correctly for the couple of minutes needed to update my machine. I removed my Smartlink module, plugged in the cable and ran the software. A minute or so later I had a machine with the latest firmware. As an early adopter, I didn't even have the Smartcode feature; now I even have exhale relief. Too bad the machine doesn't have a USB port, but still this cable is a worthwhile investment, as so far the machine seems as if it will go forever despite being dragged all over the world. more...
