Updating your Vizio Blu-ray player's firmware can resolve minor software hiccups in your player. If you're not having any problems, there's often no reason to update the firmware.

  1. Plug a flash drive that is at least 1 gigabyte in size into an available USB port on a computer.
  2. Click the Windows Orb on the Windows taskbar and then click "Computer."
  3. Double-click the name of your flash drive beneath Devices with Removable Storage.
  4. Copy any files that you don't want to delete from the flash drive off of the flash drive and place them in a safe location on your computer. You will only need to leave these files in this location until after you update your Vizio Blu-ray player's firmware.
  5. Navigate back to the Computer window when you're done relocating any files you don't want to delete and then right-click the name of the flash drive beneath Devices with Removable Storage.
  6. Click "Format."
  7. Click the drop-down arrow beneath "File system" and then select "FAT32."
  8. Click to uncheck the Quick Format box if it's checked and then click "Start."
  9. Click "OK" when the Format Completed message dialog box appears on the screen.
  10. Navigate back to the Computer window and double-click the name of your flash drive.
  11. Right-click the open area in the window that appears to open a dialog box, select "New" and then click "Folder." A new folder appears on the flash drive.
  12. Right-click the new folder and then click "Rename." Type "UPG" as the new name for the folder and then press "Enter."
  13. Open your Web browser and navigate to the Vizio Support page, locate the firmware update you want to install and then download that firmware update file to the UPG folder on the flash drive.
  14. Navigate back to the Computer window after the update is finished and then right-click the icon for the flash drive.
  15. Click "Eject." When the icon representing the drive disappears, it's safe to disconnect the flash drive from your computer.
  16. Turn the Vizio Blu-ray player on if it isn't turned on already.
  17. Connect the flash drive to an available USB port on your Vizio Blu-ray player. The main menu for the Vizio Blu-ray player appears.
  18. Open the Vizio Blu-ray player's main menu, and then select "System," "Upgrade Firmware" and then "USB Storage."
  19. Press "Select."
  20. Elect to install the firmware upgrade when prompted. A progress bar appears onscreen displaying the status of the installation.
  21. Press "Select" when a message appears stating that the firmware update is complete and then restart the player if it doesn't do so automatically.
