Default FW upgrade (1.11) for NWZ-S630F series UK Players

Version 1.11 was posted on the Sony support site.
Only one minor improvement: "When playing any music files, sometimes the units cannot be operated, and then, may turn off and on automatically".

Worth noting there is also the same firmware upgards for the 730 series too......

I'll confirm all good when I get a chance to upgrade it at home.

Hopefully this will solver the very occasional shut down when moving from the sensme lists to the normal library. Only happened a couple of times, but maybe this is the issue.

since doing this firmware upgrade I now don't seem to have

(1) any thumbnails for any of my Iplayer videos (I'm sure I had some before)

(2) or any of my photos ?

(3) or any of my artwork for albums ...

only items that have any thumbnails now are the "sample" photos that came with the S639 ...

any ideas ?

Can't help with the above, but I can confirm all seems to be good with my player, and all my thumbnails and everything are in order.....

I bought my player back in early October before most people, so I think I've had it longer than most people. It was working fine except for a few minor crashes.
My s638f eventually started crashing every time I browsed or did something on the player, the crash would freeze the screen, and I had to press the reset button to restart the player. This would then occur again when I used it for another 2 mins. So I went onto the Sony website and found this firmware update, I just installed it and the player seems to be functioning exactly how it should have.

I highly recommend everyone download the firmware update to avoid future complications.
