I discovered a way to easily erase the flash a few nights ago. I figured there most likely was a way to erase the flash without using a PC based application.
You can easily flash your DM-600 as follows.
Important, You must know what IP address your DB will have, post flash erase. My DB always gets the same IP address from the router when I use DHCP. The IP is assigned based on MAC address, so never changes from image to image.
If someone else can, please chip in with a way of figuring out your IP address otherwise.
1: Turn on DHCP in the communications page and note down the IP address your DB was assigned.
2: Remove the power supply lead from the back of the DB, hold in the power/standby button, plug in the power supply again (While keeping the button pressed). Give it about 15 secs and flash should be erased.
It only actually takes about 10 secs, You will notice that the flashing pattern on the LEDs will have changed.
3: Open up your favorite web browser and type in the IP address you noted earlier. You will see a green page load. Click the link labeled 'upgrade firmware' (or similar) on the bottom left of the page. Browse to and select your the NFI image file on your PC. Click the button to proceed.
4: Once the flash progress meter has reached 100%, turn the DB off then on again.
That's it, You have a new image in flash.
Hope someone finds this useful
