SWL recovery CD - in case if your unit is stuck with Gateway Error 202 or some other failure occurs during the upgrade and unit is unable to boot up afterwards. It's based on latest 398x software but can be used to recover RNS-510 running any software version - just insert it and start a new SWL process by pressing Setup + Eject + Info/Mic/whatever top right button. It will try to restore basic coding (including TestMode) and finish SWL, and if your unit is not completely damaged, it will boot up Support for EU/US/CHN units.
RNS-510 HDD Format CD - it will format both partitions on HDD and all MP3 files and maps will be lost. Run it only if you have problems accessing audio files after software upgrade or you do want to install an older version Navi map. If you want to erase maps only and keep existing MP3 files, then edit the file WA\FORMHDB1.WSH and replace first symbol in line "hdTermFormat("/hdb1",3)" with #
In some rare cases the MP3 partition can not be formatted with this CD, If this happens, downgrade to software 1200 (it will also format HDD) and then upgrade back to your current version.
RNS-510 Maps HDD Format CD - it will format only the partition containing the maps, MP3 files should stay intact.

- old CAN gateways are with index less than 1K0 907 530 K for Golf/Skoda Octavia and 3C0 907 530 E for Passat.
- RNS-510 is very picky on CD media, so I suggest to always burn firmware to the DVD media, not CD.
- if RNS-510 complains about downgrade error, insert media and reboot unit by pressing Setup + Eject + Info/Mic/whatever top right button together. On US units, use Guide button instead of Setup button.
