Rowe AMi CD 100 CCC 40832220 Firmware Versions?
« on: November 15, 2017, 05:01:26 pm »
Hello, does anyone know of a list of firmware versions for the Rowe CCC 40832220 computer controller?  The controller I have is in a Laserstar Eagle.  I've seen versions 3.0, 3.5, 3.6 , 3.9.  What are the differences between these?  And are there more versions?  If an update or upgrade is needed is there somewhere to download?

Thank you!
Mike

To the best of my knowledge, version 4.3 was the last version for the entire CD-100 series Central Control Computer boards.

Some versions are here:

The very latest version (5.3) for the mech control board is here (works with CDM12, CDPro, and CDPro2 players):

Thank you Ken for the info.  Is there a list that describes what each version is for?  What corrections or enhancements each has?  Which Mech controllers and cd players will work with a certain firmware?
Thank you!

Rowe sent out a sheet listing all software versions, corrections, and improvement to attendees at the Rowe jukebox service clinics that were held all over the country back then. I had some of them, but they all got thrown away years ago. I don't know if anyone saved theirs.

I know our sheets for the software are all but long gone.  mainly bug fixes though. One version included support for the new (at the time) electronic volume control remote... Free play options during certain times and whatnot.

For the software, there is no reason to run anything but the latest version. (I think it's V4.X ... 4.2? 4.3?? it's been a minute.)

Central Control Computer software version 4.1 default pricing is 2-7-18. Version 4.3 default pricing is 2-5-15.

Note: Versions 3.9 and above require a 1mb eprom (32 pins, type 27C010-12). Early software used a 512kb eprom (28 pins, type 27C512-12). Early CCC boards only had a 28 pin IC socket installed.

Hello, wondering if there is information anywhere on how to upgrade the firmware (I currently have v2.3 on CD100B). I noticed a post above that a 32 pin eprom would be required for 4.x and the socket in my computer is 32 pin (I believe!) currently populated with a 28 pin eprom with 4 empty sockets. Have looked at eprom programmers on amazon (usb types) that would appear to work but no information found yet on how to burn the program.

Thanks!
-Chris

same as all EEPROMS...but it's gonna require some equipment,

locate ROM file update on internet...
scrape off sticker from over the EEPROM window and clean the residue off...
erase ROM with UV light eraser...
program ROM file you got to the EEPROM.

or have a look around on ebay and buy an already burned EEPROM and just swap it out. no sense in buying all the stuff to burn 1 rom and then never do it again.
