Re: HP DAT 40 firmware downgrade C908 to C305

Just to clarify:

C305 is the last up to date Firmware release, even if the code numer is lower than C908, this because these firmware have a mapped code:

c = Ceasar (project name)
9 or 3 = the Year (1999 - 2003)
08 or 05 = the month (august or may)

that's why the last release have a lower progressive number
