I've been trying to update my tv to the latest version via USB, but when I connect the USB stick to the TV, the TV thinks the stick is empty. When I connect the USB to my PC, the upgrade.msd file is there. I have re-downloaded the update file several times. Tried three USB sticks, and even an SD card. I've been through all of the instructions for a USB update a dozen times. Does anyone know why the TV is unable to see the upgrade file on the USB?

Hi @JeffNY01 ,
I'm sorry to hear that. You have probably done this already, but did you unzip the file before placing this inside the USB? Did you follow these steps after downloading the new software version on your PC?
Your TV will search the USB drive for update files. Follow the on-screen instructions to install the updated software. Updates usually take a few minutes; please do not turn off the TV until the update is complete. When the update is finished, the TV will restart automatically.

im having the same issue for my AU8000 50 inch. my 55 inch in the living room updated successfully to 2120 but my 50 in is stuck on 1420.
I tried wifi updating, it said its up to date. I then tried 3 different USB sticks. downloaded the firmware file and copied the unzipped folder to the USB. it sees the files but when I select to search the USB stick for updates, it says none found. I even tried just including the image folder, nothing. then tried just the update.msd file by itself in the root of the USB, again nothing. when I bought the TV last week, it performed updates, I assumed it was firmware, but I guess not. anyone have any other ideas? Samsungs website says that 2120 is the most recent updated version available for my device so im unsure why its not updating either over the air or by USB.

I'm having the same issue with my UN65AU8000FXZA (65 inch 4K). I have 2111.1 on it now and it won't update to 2120.0 (via USB or Internet). Samsung, please respond to this thread. We need your help with this!
