    only other is a laptop with Windows 7 but no serial port, this desktop I have used a few times - I set it up with XP for such a purpose, to flash DM500 and Skybox using Null modem cable and never had issues before

    The cable may be faulty, did a loop back test on the null modem cable and it fails

    Re: INVALID IMAGE (OR OLD VERSION) when flashing

    I managed to get a usb to serial and connected it to my laptop running Windows 7

    DreamUp detects the DM800 now but nothing else

    however using NCF Repair Tool I get this error

    Power ON DB Device [ESC to Abort]
    Operation Start at: 20:35:54
    DM800HD Detected !
    Wrong Boot Response!

    any ideas what to do next

    Wrong Boot Response can mean a problem with this sim remove clean and try again. It can also mean a communication problem.

    Pop your nail in the hinged lid part of the sim holder and gently push back to the hinged. Bit like on older type mobile phones.

    Very delicate be careful.
