I got an email from HP with the following info;
" * Coming end of the month: Next firmware and driver versions
o By end of the month, we are planning to have new firmware version 7 together with new drivers for MAC and Windows platforms. The main features will be:
+ From firmware side: Cartridge swapping in the middle of a print: In case the printer runs out of ink in the middle of a print, the print will not be cancelled and the printer will wait for customer to exchange the empty cartridge.
+ From drivers side: MAC OS X.5 support for HP Designjet Z3100PS
· There would be a follow-up communication with further detail. Notice that in this new firmware release there will not be changes on the internal structure of paper presets, so the latest documentation on "Working with other commercially papers" for FW 6 will be also valid for FW 7"
Finally could download firmware.
Download completed, mounted file, alright.
I go to the updating window in Printer Utility, select new firmware file (ending with .fmw, as stated by HP).
Click "Update". 1%… 2% … 4% Then, crash. A stange message, telling it could not reach server, etc.
Which server, I have none, and the firmware file is on my HD ?
No matter how I try, I get the same error message
My current firmware is 126.96.36.199, so the new one should install itself.
