S600 Old drive Problem with firmware
Hi! Can anybody help me with a problem?
I've bought old used Servostar S606 drive. I needed to use it with AKM42G servo motor. Drive's shield in attachment.
I connected with Drive software, but there wasn't such motor in drive's motor database. So I tried to download motor database (S400 / S600 Motor Database (DB & CSV)) with load from disk feature. But haven't successed.
Next I downloaded 9.56_ND0 file from this site, downloaded this firmware to drive through LPT-CAN Upgrade Tool (that took about 5 hours). And all I get is empty motor list. Also now there are ??? in hardware version.
After all, I understood, that drive's hardware version isn't compatible with this firmware. So now I need some old firmware to download it to my drive. Where can I get it? Sadly, I didn't remember old firmware version, so I can't tell which it was to correctly find out which version I need. But I remember, that in rev created string there was 2011 year.

Big thanks to Oleg and Martin Rupf!
With both arrows pressed during power up it became possible to download a firmware. Status changed to "- ". I downloaded firmware 6.86 and finally was able to use my AKM42G servo motor.

Recently (maybe after my inquiry) old firmwares appeared on the download section. So I decided, that by stepping down my firmware, I will eventually get to the one I need. I downloaded 8.79 firmware through LPT-CAN Upgrade Tool. Download finished with success message. After rebooting of the drive, the sequence of the statuses is 8.79 -> nd0 -> 8.79 -> _7_ (IMG_20190618_103900.jpg).
When I try to connect with DRIVE Software, there is no connection.
When I try to download any other FW with LPT-CAN Upgrade Tool, there is no connection could be established. When I try to do it with Firmware Upgrade Tool - "Could not switch drive to monitor mode" (IMG_20190618_103931.jpg). I used 9600 kbaud, 38400 kbaud. I tried another notebook. But nothing changes.
What is this " 7 " status? How can I now download different firmware?
