Looks like i’m the first to update my X1800. Looks like i’m the first to get his mixer f up and stuck in some kind of loop. I’m absolutely fuming. if I just turn the mixer on it just sweeps the lights forever, nothing happens. if i connect my laptop back up and use the updater, it says update failed because the device cannot be accessed. Someone better sort this quick

check for the possible solution here


Somethings happening now, thanks for the quick response I’ll update once I know more

I think we need to gather some basic info of OS type/version and perhaps notebook brand/type. Could as well be a compatibility issue.

Do you use Windows7 / 10 / MacOS?

that method seemed to work so thank you very much for that work around. after successfully running updater2, i ran the normal updater for the usb interface but it said already updated, I’m not 100% sure it has. i’m using windows 10, lenovo yoga 13.

I had the same troubles, workaround worked like a charm! Much thanks!!

Great!!! Thank you for your help!!! :blush:

Yes , fixed mine too. wow I am so glad we have people or DJ’s who work together . Thanks my friend post above. I still will keep my order for the reloop for my back up so this will not happen again to me . But " THANK YOU " for the fix and your time to post . lol We would still be pulling our hair out . I hope Denon post this on the directions to help others update . Human’s are not perfect and I will be the first to admit that . Live and learn , that is why DJ work and practice so hard . THANK YOU ! Yes I still love my Denon set up …lol just a reloop mixer for back up is a little cheaper . Enjoy all .

Hi all hope someone can help ive started the firmware update for my x1800 and then read i need win 10 or mac and only have win 7 so the updater will not run and like Learoy1 my mixer is now stuck in this sweeping lights loop im currently waiting on a friend who has a mac to finish work but not for about 6 hours till i can even ask him if he will be able to bring it so i can update is there any way i can put this back to original firmware until i can update later

Thanks a lot, it saved me :slight_smile:

Dear All,

Can you help me, Traktor Scratch Pro with timecode cd or vinyl is working with X1800 after firmware update?

Currently Traktor is not supported, scratch certificate is not in plan afaik.

Thank you very much. Could someone from Denon offically confirm the message above?

No need for Denon staff. Latest update makes the mixer DVS ready. You need to wait for the software companies to support the mixer.

Serato has promissed early this year support will come (voucher is the X1800 package). Rumor is version 2.0. Native Instruments has not made any statements in certifying the X1800, so complete no-go yet.

I was surprised by the quickness of the update, I just moved and didn’t have internet yet and used my phone as a hotspot for my Mac. Updated with out a hiccup and am loving the new update.

Download link is dead;

Sorry, you cannot access this document. Please contact the person who shared it with you.

Maybe use little bit more internet skills and try to simply go to denondj.com/sc5000prime … :wink:

Thanks, got that hint via Denon already - downloaded :slight_smile: My internet skills were just a bit surprised; a sticky topic, by DenonDJ, 12 days old, with a dead firmware link.

Yeah InMusic staff seem to use Sharepoint and share files that way; not really straight forward and links can become dead/obsolete very easy this way.
