    Re: ZEN Style M300 Firmware Update Ver 1.00.16)

    The M300 not remembering previous Bluetooth state, on and streaming after power down, was inconvienient. Happy to have found?a firmware update addressing this issue.

    Updater reports my current firmware at 0.00.000 and that it would take it to .00.6.
    Following update,?the updater reports that the "update failed".

    The update does in fact appear to have been successful. System > Information reports the firmware as being .00.6 and powering on the device now reinstates Bluetooth conectivity.
